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!

The stories are good and well written. I have all three books and some of the stories seem to be repeating.

This book had a lot of essays, but most of them were really not uplifting, and only perhaps 2 struck me as funny or laugh-out-loud hilarious. It seems that every knitter whose writing was featured in this book endured some sort of hardship, whether they miscarried, had someone or loads of someones die from cancer, or some other horrid tradgedy killed them off. I would not recommend this book as way to beguile anyone into the craft - it made me worry that some horrid piece of luck will befall me just because I knit. I'm taking it back to the bookstore. I don't need this horrid energy in my library. I understand that these people worked through a lot of grief, and that's great, but since I am not surfing that wavelength, reading about their problems is just depressing.

I bought the second and third books in this series at my local craft store. I see why they were on clearance. The back covers made them sound full of fun, interesting and inspiring stories. They were dull and too many of them were downright depressing. Not at all what I expected. I won't be keeping these books. Great concept, horrible execution.
