Writer, illustrator, and photographer Franklin Habit's first piece of knitting--a vaguely rectangular six-foot scarf--was produced during his student days at Harvard University in the 1990s. Until the widespread revival of the craft, he stitched in solitude, turning out a small but steady stream of mittens, scarves, and hats for startled friends and relations. In February 2005, inspired by the emergence of the online knitting community, he created The Panopticon ( What began as a project diary is now one of the most popular knitting blogs, with mentions in publications as diverse asKnit 1 and The Advocate. Franklin's publishing experience includes writing lifestyles features for theBoston Phoenix, reading his own essay for the knitting podcast Cast On, and writing forInterweave Knits, PieceWork, Yarn Market News, and Franklin knits and spins in Chicago, Illinois.

An affectionate and humorous celebration of every aspect of the craft of knitting, from buying--and hiding--massive quantities of yarn to wrestling with projects that go seriously awry to prescriptions for alleviating the stress brought on by holiday knitting. This witty collection represents a pitch-perfect send up of one of the most rapidly growing hobbies today. Including 75 cartoons, deftly rendered in pen and ink with watercolor wash, and several humorous short essays, every knitter is sure to find elements of themselves in this collection.
