 A Knitter's Home Companion by Michelle Edwards
 

 

Our Price: $ 17.95


A Knitter's Home Companion is an illustrated collection of stories, patterns, and recipes from beloved knitter and essayist Michelle Edwards. This heartwarming title will appeal to knitters interested in not only stitches, yarn, and patterns, but also in the lives of other knitters, the lessons that can be learned from their craft, the ways knitting helps knitters cope during difficult times, and the role of knitting in family life. 'Let [this book] keep you company when you need another knitter's voice beside you,' Edwards writes in her introduction.
Like a good friend, A Knitter’s Home Companion will inspire readers to laugh, cry, remember, be thoughtful, cook, and, of course, pick up their needles--sometimes to soothe, sometimes to celebrate, and sometimes to just pass the time. Divided into four chapters--Motherhood, Home, Community, and Legacy--stories range from 'But She Doesn't Have Any Underpants,' about the challenges of knitting for family to 'Home Ec Workshop and the Mystery of the Indian Slipper,' about finding community at a local yarn shop. Projects range from mittens and socks to a baby blanket and afghan.
'This is a charming and utterly alluring book that makes you want to cook and knit and have a little chat about the kids. I love Michelle Edwards' drawings, and the design of the book is an artwork in itself. This is a book you want to buy for yourself, and maybe to give to a few close friends, as well.' - Jane Smiley, author of many novels and knitter of many sweaters
'A cozy and charming collection of essays about the joys of knitting--complete with lovely patterns and yummy recipes--to leave you feeling warm and inspired.' - Kate Jacobs, author of Friday Night Knitting Club series and Comfort Food
'Michelle Edwards' writing remind me of a simpler time when I grew up in a small town where family was the center of everything. When I read her stories, I think about the legacy I am leaving to my daughter by teaching her the craft that I love so much and what a treasure a handmade gift really is. Beyond the delightful and heartwarming stories, the patterns, and the recipes is a wonderful message about what is really most important in life.' - Vanna White
About the author Michelle Edwards is an essayist for Lion Brand's e-newsletter, The Weekly Stitch, and the award-winning author/illustrator of many children's books. She lives in Iowa City, Iowa.
