    The Yarn Harlot strikes again! Best-selling knitting author and humorist Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is back with an irresistible collection of witty observations on how knitting and life wisdom are spun together.

    In Things I Learned From Knitting (Whether I Wanted To or Not), Pearl Mc-Phee examines age-old aphorisms in light of knitting. From "Hope Springs Eternal" to "A Friend In Need Is A Friend Indeed" and "Birds Of A Feather Flock Together," Pearl-McPhee casts a fresh, off-beat light on these sayings. Presented in quick, punchy takes, each entry in this book calls out to be read aloud and shared with anyone who enjoys playing with yarn and needles.

    Pearl-McPhee's observations are hilarious; the situations she describes strike a familiar, "not you, too?" feeling in the heart of anyone who knits. Interspersed throughout the book are her notes on the things that "Knitting is still trying to teach me. . ." That no matter how well you knit, looking at your work too closely isn't helpful. It's like kissing with your eyes open. Nobody looks good that close up.

      Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is fond of saying "There's only two stitches, the knit and the purl. How hard can it be?" (Or phrases to that effect.) You would think the comedic value of knitting would also be so simple, so limited, so 5-minutes-ago, but Ms. Pearl-McPhee keeps the subject fresh and witty, and the stories warm, funny, and alive. These tidbits of knowledge gleaned from life experiences as they apply to knitting help put much of life's peculiar twists into a very enjoyable context.
