    1. I don't knit, but I enjoyed reading this book by and about knitters. The pieces are all short and follow on straight after one another, so that the reader can find it hard to stop reading as they don't finish at the bottom of a page very often. Common themes are being taught to knit as a child by a loved relative or friend; being unable to knit until adulthood; men who knit casually; knitting and giving away garments; making friendships through knitting. The enjoyment of vibrant colours and soft [...]


    2. Featuring another rich array of contributors, KnitLit Too includes folksinger Christine Lavin and writers Perri Klass, Lesléa Newman, and Suzanne Strempek Shea. Featured as well are stories by a third-grader who picks up the needles for the first time, a mother waiting to wrap her soon-to-be-adopted child in the blanket she made for him, a sister upstaged by her Merchant Marine brother who happens to be a natural knitter, a man who is forced to admit to the new woman in his life that, yes, he k [...]


    3. The Stephanie Pearl McPhee story that kicks off this collection about trying to knit while ice skating was absolutely hilarious, but the rest of this book fell flat for me. I appreciate the idea of putting together personal memories about knitting and how it affected the authors' livesbut for the most part they didn't seem to have a point, and even those that were genuinely touching got lost among the cloying overwrought ones.


    4. It was an enjoyable read, a book I'd take with me while I ate my meals in solitude in Crossroads. There were several 9/11 stories which I skimmed over, since I don't care for 9/11 much. Recommended!




    5. Funny, touching, and enlightening. People knit (or not) for a lot of reasons - relaxation, creativity, or tradition. This book explores a lot of the feelings people have about the process.




    6. Cute. Light-hearted read. A collection of stories is something I don't usually read, but it was quite good, and about knitting - bonus! LOL!




    7. Thoroughly enjoyed these essays on knitting from a wide variety of authors, knitters, spinners, etc. Some stories make me laugh, others bring a tear to the eye.
