From the best-selling author of At Knit's End and Knitting Rules! comes yet another hilarious book of tongue-in-cheek observations on the world of knitting. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off invites knitters of all ages, levels, and persuasions to embark with her on a journey deep into the land populated by those who are obsessed with yarn, needles, and what’s on their needles now.

Using a travel guide format as her launching pad, Pearl-McPhee acts as tour guide extraordinaire, displaying her trademark razor-sharp wit as she describes and critiques every aspect of this land she knows so well — its people, native language, familiar phrases, strange beliefs, etiquette, and cultural customs. Readers will love her timeline of notable dates in knitting history and rarely celebrated knitting heroes, from the samurai warriors of Japan to the "Ter-rible Knitters of Dent." And, while the land of knitting is a peaceful place, it does have its political arguments, such as the acrylic versus natural fi bers and circular versus straight needles debates.

As she's toured (and knit) her way across North America during the past two years, Pearl-McPhee's smart, perfectly timed banter has captured the hearts, minds, and funny bones of thousands of knitters far and wide. No fan is going to want to be left behind as Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off on her latest yarn-bound expedition.

  • Another Hit for this Knitter Diva
    Verified Purchase

    I really enjoy Stephanie's books. She truly understands the knitting jones! She has a great sense of humor about knitting and what goes with this passion. I have read her other works and really enjoyed them so was very interested to read this book. I was not disappointed.

    What fun! At last someone who talks "yarn-speak" - the whole book is an adventure in itself. Even my non-knitter husband read it and laughed out loud several times. I think it clued him in a little; he now understands that I'm not the only yarn & knitting addict....and, as she points out - "'s better than having an affair". So my only problem now is how to support my habit. Thanks, Stephanie!

    This journey to the Land of Knitting was a delightful trip. I never thought of my 53 years of knitting in quite this way but after reading the book, I find that I have been living here for many,many years. The style and content of the book is wonderful. If a new knitter wants to become a Knitter, (pages 212 through 215) this book will definately help the process along. I intend to purchase the authors' two other books.
