Abstract:

"Most knitters know: Getting through a difficult time often means knitting through it. It's this home truth that comes through clearly in the writings gathered in this book. These pieces---some from contemporary writers and others from the WPA's Federal Writers' Project---tell stories of knitting through adversity of all kinds, from war and poverty to imprisonment and political anxiety. Poignant, often lyrical, the narratives conjure hardscribble lives and immigrant experience, the work of anxious hands kept busy creating warnth and beauty or earning desperately needed money. Also featured are black-and-white photographs from the Library of Congress archives, as well as a sampling of patterns to help knitters through their own difficult times"--Page 2 of cover.
