Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.

Pull up a chair, drape an afghan over your legs, and enter the world of The Knitter's Gift. It is a realm in which a pair of needles and a single strand of yarn ties the generations together, a place where the wounds of the human condition are salved, a source of warmth on days when our souls shiver, and a moment to remind ourselves of the importance of the small things in life. -from the author's Introduction

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Okie in Alaska on December 26, 2004
Format: Paperback
If you love knitting and reading about knitting, this is the book for you. It is comprised of many short (true) stories that involve knitting, many of which are tear jerkers. Keep your tissues handy.

I stayed up late reading this and finished it in one sitting. It would make a thoughtful gift for any knitter, newbie or advanced.

I plan on passing this book along to my mother-in-law for her to enjoy. It's too good to just sit on my shelf, I feel I have to share it.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Lois Lain VINE VOICE on December 11, 2005
Format: Paperback
A collection of thoughts, poems and essays on knitting with an occasional pattern thrown in. Fun and light reading for the most part, but beware -- there's more than one tear-jerker contained within!
