This is not just a spinning book!

Lara's Library (Sort Of): KnitLit the Third

ardreturn>I love all three of the KnitLit books, and hope another one is on its way.ass="hardreturn" />ardreturn>KnitLit the Third: We Spin More Yarnsa> has a misleading title. There are some stories that include spinning. But, mainly, the stories and poems focus on how knitting twines through our lives.ass="hardreturn" />ardreturn>I like the division of the book into sections. What's in My Head, Who's in My Life and What's in the Basket all make sense as general categories for an anthology of stories about fiber.ass="hardreturn" />ardreturn>I especially liked the stories about the many ways knitting can soothe the troubled heart. Like coffee (for me), knitting makes the good times better and the bad times bearable.ass="hardreturn" />ardreturn>Divorce, birth, death, and growing. In short, all of those little (and large) traumatic changes in life are included in these stories. Some are sad, some are happy. All are interesting.ass="hardreturn" />ardreturn>If short prose isn't your thing, there are several poems sprinkled through the book, as well.ass="hardreturn" />ardreturn>The edition I read was an Adobe ebook on an iPad. It was easy to navigate the the typography was easy to read.ass="hardreturn" />ardreturn>Overall, a fun little tome for when you want to think about thinking about knitting.ass="hardreturn" />
