From New York Times bestselling knitting writer Clara Parkes, comes a new collection of essays and stories drawn from the yarn-loving, stash-collecting, close-knit community of knitters. This addictive-to-read anthology celebrates yarn--specifically, the knitter's reputation for acquiring it in large quantities and storing it away in what's lovingly referred to as a "stash." Consider contributions from knitting and teaching luminaries, including:
- Stitch 'n Bitch co-founder Debbie Stoller
- Meg Swansen, daughter of master knitter Elizabeth Zimmermann
- Knitting blogger and author Susan B. Anderson
