“This is a collection of fourteen essays written by thirteen knitters and one knitter’s husband. Every knitter I know could relate personally … some are deeply moving, others just plain fun, some educational, one or two perfect for putting me to sleep… Ms. Dakin is an exceptional reader. Her tone and voice takes on the personality of the written words so well that I looked forward to hearing the next essay.”
