Clara Parke's writing is fluid, imaginative, evocative, and happens to be about knitting. She manages to draw parallels between the yarn craft and a nostalgic view of mundane life that even non-stitchers can appreciate. From time in France as a school girl, to restoring an old farmhouse in Maine, the rhythm of the stories hits just the right notes. This is a book that can be savored for its prose over and over.
The author narrates her own book wonderfully, giving it the intimate feel of a chat between friends. I'm very glad to have this in my audiobook library.

Heavy on the memoir, light on the knitting. I wasn't particularly moved by this life telling.
As a lifelong knitter there is so much of this book I can relate to.
With lovely descriptions of the knitting of rows and ownership of work

Such an enchanting listen. I've read Knitlandia by Clara Parkes too and they're both magical. I just wish the story was longer, or maybe I'll just listen to it again!!!
