RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 64065877 LA English T1 Knitting rules! A1 Pearl-McPhee, Stephanie., PB Storey Pub. PP North Adams, MA YR 2006 SN 1580178340 9781580178341 AB Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, the celebrated blogger and humorist of the knitting world, is back, continuing her running dialogue with her knitting compatriots. Both a celebration of knitting and a sourcebook for practical information, this book is a collection of useful advice and emotional support for the knitter. Pearl-McPhee examines essential truisms of knitting, side by side with tongue in-cheek warnings, realities, and fantasies about the act of knitting and the people who do it. She unravels the mysteries of what it is that makes knitting click, and dares to question longstanding rules and uncover the true essence of what makes a hat a hat, a sock a sock, and so on. Insights into why certain techniques work encourage knitters to take control and knit in the way that works best for them.--From publisher description.
