It's like looking into a mirror

This little book is so much fun and every knitter who's a little bit serious (I would not call myself obsessed with knitting but I always squeeze some knitting in my schedule - even if my work week goes really crazy and beyond the 80 hours per week :))about her/his knitting will recognise themselves and their thoughts while reading this book. I like the format in particular - you can pick it up, have a good time reading it, put it away for a while and then just pick up where you left off w/o an issue. Without a doubt, I would buy it again.


With almost every page, I laughed so hard I had to keep dabbing my eyes with tissues. Ms. Pearl-McPhee's quick twists of wit are exquisite. Excellent gift, but you'll have to get one for yourself.

Laughed Until I Cried

This is a wonderful book. I can relate so much to her "meditations". Today, I was feeling a little down & decided I needed a little cheering up, so I picked up her book & I did literally laugh until I cried. I am not even finished it yet but I am trying to make it stretch because I don't want to read all her funny wittisicms in just a few days. This book has been worth far more to me than what I paid for it. It cost me $13.95 Canadian, but what I am getting from it is worth far more than that. What a terrific sense of humor. I would buy more of her stuff in a heartbeat.

Is laughing gonna' hurt you?

If you're just after surgery, stay away from this book. If you don't like laughing so hard that you can't breathe, just keep your mouse away from that "buy now" button. If you actually want to DO something between the moment you lay your hands on the book and the moment you finish reading the whole thing, spare yourself the anguish. If you've got appendicitis... ...NOT the book for you. But if you don't mind having a prolonged series of giggles at life's sublime ironies, buy a copy. Buy it because it's the funniest book to be published in 2005. Buy it to encourage Ms. Pearl-McPhee to keep writing. And knitting. Buy it - and drop by her blog to let her know you've done it. But only if you don't mind some hearty laughter.

Short, sweet and funny!

This small gem of a book is just a delight for anyone who knits (or who knows a knitter). It's filled with little essay-like "meditations" about knitting, obsession, family, stashes of yarn . . . all things that any person who knits can appreciate. Each entry is short and sweet--some only a paragraph long, some a page or two--but they're unreservedly fun. Each is headed by a delicious quote, too, by knitters and non-knitters alike, and then summed up in Ms. Pearl-McPhee's own, sparkling way. It's a small little book, but easy to flip through, and I must for any knitter's library.
