Knitting Pearls

Writers Writing About Knitting

25 November 2016

Ann Hood (Editor)

Description

The rhythm, ritual and pleasure of knitting are celebrated in this new collection for lovers of both knitting and literature.

In Knitting Pearls, two-dozen writers write about the transformative and healing powers of knitting. Jodi Picoult remembers her grandmother and how through knitting she felt that everlasting love. Lily King remembers the year her family lived in Italy and a knitted hat that helped her daughter adjust to her new home. Laura Lippman explores how converting to Judaism changed not only Christmas but also her mother’s gift of a knitted stocking. And Bill Roorbach remembers his first year at college when knitting soothed his broken heart and helped him fall in love again. Other contributors include Steve Almond, Jane Hamilton, Ann Leary, Nick Flynn, Lee Woodruff and knitting rock stars Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed and the Yarn Whisperer, Clara Parks.
