Loved it--and I'm not even a knitter!!
I bought this book for a young friend who just started to knit, and I wanted to encourage her in a hobby. Well, I was scanning over the book, and decided to read a chapter. My friend had to wait until I finished reading it! I also logged onto Stephanie's blog site, and found that very entertaining, too. I guess I'm a knitter-wannabe!

I really enjoyed this book. Stephanie reaches out and brings the reader into her life. I can just imagine the various situations she goes through. I can see the squirrel chasing her for some of her yarn stash. It is just hilarious. This book is a relaxing book to read. I read it at lunch and on my breaks. It brightened my day and made me to look forward eagerly to get home and pick up my needles Thanks Stepanie! As knitters we can know we are not alone in our obsession with needles and yarn. Oh, how I love the feel of a soft merino wool!
