From Booklist

There is, quite literally and figuratively, no end to yarns about yarns. In this third compendium of fiction, faction, and poetry about knitting, returning editors (and, yes, they're knitters) Roghaar and Wolf continue to showcase wisdom and wit in 71 snippets (that is, from one to three or four pages) from contributors who are well dispersed geographically. Hilarious admissions, some straightforward, abound, such as "I never finish anything I start." Or being confronted by a legion of MSITs (Martha Stewarts In Training). The other side--occasional sadness and deep insight--surfaces as well, such as the inexplicable and sudden tragedy of an eight-year-old's death and the solace of handwork. And everyday tales are included, from a kitten that's swallowed an odd lot of yarn to the onset of the "boyfriend sweater curse." Barbara Jacobs

This series of books just keeps getting better and better. I wish I didn't read them so fast, or that they could publish them faster! Every knitter or wool lover should own them. They are a way of drawing all of us, knitters and woolgathers, together on a spiritual level, and a humorous level. Don't deprive yourself of the pleasure! They are SO worth the investment.

I love to knit and read about knitting. The short stories in this book are good to read when my hands are tired from knitting. They are just the right length to finish in a few minutes. It's always ineresting to read about other people's experience with their yarn and needle projects.

I'm a long-time fan of the Yarn Harlot and wanted to read the story she wrote. I'm enjoying the others as well!
