  • Let s say you just knit your first hat and it did t quite turn out the way you planned Maybe it s not quite the right size Or shape Have you considered your extended family and friends Maybe one of them has a head that would be perfect for your new creation Or maybe you need to change your mindset your hat might be much happier as a tea cozy Or you could put handles on it and make it a purse Or maybe, just maybe, what you really knit was a ball of yarn, just waiting to be ripped out and re purpo [...]


  • My mother taught me to knit while she was visiting me at Thanksgiving, and so I am working on my very first item a scarf, done in simple garter stitch with purple merino wool Since her visit I ve picked up a few books to help me, starting with two beginner knitter books and then followed by this one which I found by browsing at the store I ve read the author s blog for the last month or so and find her writing quite entertaining, so I figured I d give this a whirl This book is a great companion [...]


  • Now I understand why knitters become such ardent fans of Stephanie McPhee Not only is this book full of sage advice for knitters, it s very funny I think admitting to being prejudiced that even a non knitter would enjoy this book for its humor While it s directed at knitters, hoping to help us make our lives a bit easier with suggestion on stash book magazine organizing, simple instructions for generic hats, scarves, sweaters, and socks, it s also full of a wealth of practical advice on how to c [...]


  • Part funny anecdotes, part how to, part pattern book This wasn t quite as much fun to read through as Yarn Harlot but is one I need a copy of on my shelf to refer back to There are a lot of practical tips and advice that I kept wanting to snap pics of to remember.


  • I ve read Stephanie Pearl McPhee s blog on and off for almost a decade and always felt like her writing voice was the kind of friend you could hang out with This book definitely fulfills that personally friendly and funny voice, but also with no nonsense advice for getting started with knitting This book is for this generation of knitters those who probably learned from online videos rather than from their elders She breaks down the fundamentals of creating hats, socks, scarves shawls, and sweat [...]


  • Added to my TBR April 10, 2013There is literally nothing in this world that inspires me to knit than reading a Stephanie Pearl McPhee book She s so funny, so enthusiastic, it s impossible for me to read even a page without my fingers itching to grab some needles Of course, then I got to the chapters about knitting socks and sweaters, and all the mathing involved, and my knitrection drooped mightily Because math Still Such a fantastic book, and hopefully my desire to knit will continue for at le [...]


  • Since about a third of the book extols the stash, I figured a third of this review should, too The other parts of the book do have some excellent knitting advice, though, and McPhee does write some entertaining prose.This book has lead me to the conclusion that I am not a real knitter I have a yarn stash, yes It s contained in one, one bin in the bottom of my closet and is mostly made of leftover yarn from former projects If I go to a yarn store, I know exactly what I need for my current project [...]


  • I enjoyed this book, especially the tables of average garment sizes I already know enough to come up with all of her recipes on my own, but for a less experienced knitter I think those would also be very valuable However, about 1 4 of the way in I stopped seeing the author s comments as jokingly self deprecating, and started seeing it as her almost bragging about how non smart and self focused she is in many, many ways weird, and not very attractive Despite that, I found the content useful and w [...]


  • I really, really liked this book I m pausing before giving it a 5 star because I m still in the grip of the glow of my first knitted sock following her instructions The instructions about the sock are clear and very good I m wondering if that might false inflate the score I m thinking about giving.I think this is an excellent book for beginners and has a lot to offer in the way of tips for yarn storage, knitting bags, and project management Yes, there is such a thing as knitting project manageme [...]


  • Full of the kind of humor that will tickle anyone who has ever knit, whether a novice or an expert or somewhere in between, but especially those who have a stash of yarn and a tendency to try to bring new knitters into the fold Beyond the humor, though, there are some very helpful knitting tips and sets of instructions for simple knitting without patterns, even for some things I don t think of as simple, like socks If you re interested in knitting, this will give you a hint of what an obsession [...]


  • I loved this book Loved Stephanie s humour and all the little tips and tricks.It was because of this book that I finally took the plunge and learned sock knitting on dpn s I cast on using sport weight yarn and big needles and followed Stephanie s recipe I ended up with one huge blue sock, but by god I did it So thanks for that.


  • I always love Stephanie s books The ohmygosh I KNOW feeling about her stories, the tips, the patterns And now I have her basic sock pattern Win win




  • This is one of those books that s mostly humor and not a lot of actual knitting advice Have a stash of yarn that s slowly taking over your house Do you have knitting needles and magazines than you do anything else If you re an obsessive knitter or someone who loves an obsessive knitter, you might enjoy Pearl McPhee s take on why knitters do the strange things they do.


  • Came for the sock pattern recommended by Michelle, stayed for the utterly charming voice as Yarn Harlot held court on the wonders of yarn and the virtues of various kinds of knitting projects I think I m a bit too advanced a knitter for it to be really worth it for me to own this book, but I DO want to copy every one of her estimated size and yarn needed charts SO handy


  • A must read for every knitter who enjoys knitting with others Knitting etiquette, including taking care of your favorite hard working knitting shop owner Great book, regardless of one s knitting experience and expertise I didn the realize until I read it, how much I needed this book.


  • The advice on everything is excellent here, with the notable exceptions of dealing with stashes and storage It s really important for most of us who are not professional knitters to be able to think rationally about such things as storage space and budgeting.



  • Funny, Inspiring and practicalI didn t think I could like a book than Yarn Harlot but I think I like this one even .


  • This is such a witty book for knitting enthusiasts She is such a fantastic writer and there are lots of techniques in the book She also has lots of fun little facts about knitting.


  • Overall, this is a fun read As a knitter, I knew most of the material, but the author s engaging style kept me going Not a lot of new stuff to be learned by the experienced knitter in this book.


  • Fun short episodes about the hazards of knitting, with some simple patterns recipes for socks, scarves, and shawls mixed in.



  • This was sweet and chatty, and probably engaging for a sassy teen who s considering knitting as a rebellion Not to my taste, as I ve long ago considered and decided I d much rather make my declaration with my needles, not the pen.


  • After reading her last book, 15 I immediately made it a point to run out and get her latest book, Knitting Rules The Yarn Harlot s Bag of Tricks and I read it cover to cover pretty quickly Pearl McPhee s latest book includes of her great sense of humor as well as some great tips and basic patterns for items like hats, socks, scarves and even sweaters Along with that she writes about essential knitting notions, but all in a fashion that s both informative and entertaining Her observations on the [...]


  • 3.5 stars I just reread this as I ve been on a knitting kick recently, and it s not quite as endearing as I remembered from my first read I like knitting, I love the feel of fibers as both yarn and cloth, but based on this book, I am not a Knitter whatever that means The writing is overall light with a mostly funny tone that I soured on about two thirds through the book I am a crafter, I know stashes oh Lord how I do I have multiple crafts worth myself , but I did not find the extolling of coati [...]


  • So initially, reading this was very good for the progress of my attempts to knit Christmas presents, because it made me feel smart and part of the knitterly in crowd So after reading a bit I would go knit a bunch, in a happy little cycle Thennnn then it all went off the rails, because the different neat ideas were just screaming to be tried out So I figured, well, I wouldn t want to fatigue myself with my current knitting project the one that has so far taken me months, and that needs to be done [...]


  • This is exactly the book I needed.I m the kind of person and, specifically, knitter who wants to sit down and be able to just make something on the fly, without the constrains of a pattern Pearl McPhee is excellent for someone like me, since she gives you the general guidelines for making hats, scarves, socks, and mittens I didn t have to rely on a pattern for the beanie I made after I read this book In addition, Pearl McPhee, who has a knitting blog, also has a great sense of humor and makes yo [...]
