Book Review

Knitting Pearls, edited by Ann Hood. What a lovely read. I had the good fortune to pick this book up off the shelves at Barnes and Noble right after it was released (I didn’t even know Ann Hood was going to compile another book). I read Knitting Yarns a few years ago when it came out and loved it, so when I saw Knitting Pearls  I had to have it.

The book features essays on knitting by 27 authors. And when I say essays I really mean stories about life. Now I’m the type of gal who reads a book through in one fell swoop if at all possible. But not all books are so easily digested. These authors are so genuine in their accounts that sometimes during the reading I just had to stop and think about what they said. They discuss how knitting fits into our lives, about how we use it to show love for others, and how it teaches us about ourselves. They talk about knitting as simply knitting, as a lifestyle, and as a metaphor. And they do it brilliantly! I highly recommend buying your own copy. This book does not disappoint.
