"Plenty of novels in which knitting plays a starring role would make great chick flicks. Casting Off
would make a great movie. Consider the elements: Exotic location. Feisty heroine with a past. Equally feisty kid. Hunky male lead... A crusty old man of the sea. A riveting climax. Awe-inspiring sweaters. While Dickson at times steers close to sentimental shoals, she tells a ripping good yarn, bringing to vivid life the people, seascape, and sounds of Ireland's western islands. The only thing missing: patterns for the...sweaters she so beautifully describes." - Vogue Knitting
