Always enjoy reading Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's stories. Sometimes they strike a familiar chord with another knitter, and are quite humorous. This book did have some of her personal experiences, which may not be as entertaining unless one has an old washing machine. All in all, a nice little book of stories to read at odd times.

I love to read books that I can relate too, and Stephanie's books (this is the second one that I've read) are definitely full of stories I can relate too. I often found myself laughing out loud at something in the books that I've done or said. There is no way, really, to do justice to the way these books are written, or to the absolute joy they are to read. You'll just have to read them for yourselves, and I highly recommend that you do so. You'll be glad you did!

Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, also known as the Yarn Harlot, has written another collection of essays about knitting. Writing essays is a nearly lost art, but with blogs and the internet it is not lost yet. If you have not read any of Pearl-McPhee's books this book will be a pleasure for you.

Free Range Knitter includes essays about knitting, about yarn buying, yarn stashing, nice (read more expensive) and not so nice yarn. Mostly what Pearl-McPhee does is share her love of all things related to knitting and make those who share that love laugh, cry and mostly agree with her. There is something about knitting that creates a community, as the art enjoys a resurgence and a popularity with young people, writers like Pearl-McPhee bridge the gap. Her essays verbalize the fun of knitting and attempt to explain why knitters knit.

In the past, a long long time ago, or back in the day, people may have knit to save money, to make money, or "for the troops". Now people knit for a variety of reasons, Stephanie's essay, Smarter than they think , talks a lot about why we knit. She uses the analogy of women in countries who knot rugs. These women are not allowed to learn to read and write, but their rugs tell stories about the people who create the rugs. Knitting is a lot like that, she writes that we knit to cover our children's feet when they go to college, or clothe our babies, we make hats to keep those we love warm. This book may not help non-knitters understand knitters, although it will if they take the time to read it, but it will draw knitters closer together. The book will explain why knitters spend $27 for yarn and 100 hours to make a pair of socks, while non-knitters look on and wonder why?

The first book I read by Stephanie was, The Secret Life of a Knitter, and at the time I was only knitting a little here and there, her books got me knitting again, and remind why I knit, and why I enjoy it so much. Greg Kinnear calls her the Michael Jordan of knitting (that is another story), but I view her as the Lance Armstrong of knitting, she has by the wit and joy of her writing, brought knitters out of the closet and on to buses, parks, coffee shops and more. She has reminded us with her humor how much fun it is to knit.

Very funny set of essays from a knitter to knitters, or those who live with or know them. Most enjoyable.

Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is an excellent author. She writes well, with both well crafted prose and hysterical rants that will have you with tears in your eyes. (Don't read her stuff in public, people will stare as you alternate with giggles and tears!) You will agree with her because she manages to grab the most interesting topics and make them funny. She also outs every knitter's lust for more and more yarn, and the inevitable goof in various projects. I will be reading everything she writes, just hope she keeps on putting those wonderful books out!

I love all of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee's books, and actually became a knitter after stumbling onto her writing.

This time the Harlot writes what I'd consider a collection of short stories. Most of these stories are amusing - some laugh out loud funny. Her letters to designers were some of those belly laugh outtakes. What surprised me were the very touching ones that I enjoyed even more. The Yarn Harlot has a wonderful, breezy style of writing that invites you into her world as if you were one of her closest friends and she is a dear friend at that! Write on, Stephanie! Write on!
I loved her first book so I was delighted to find this one in my Christmas stocking. So when ever my hands need a rest from knitting I am laughing with this book. Sadly those around me don't think it is as funny. Wish someone else in my family loved to knit but I know when I get back to school many of my teacher friends will be waiting their turn with the book. This book is the perfect gift fot the knitter in your life.
