    This was 3 and a half stars for me but I am rounding it up to 4 stars I am not fond of books that use recipes andor knitting patterns as fillers I normally don't read this type of knitting book In their Mason Dixon blog Kay Gardner and Ann Shayne recently praised this book so I got myself a copy Edwards is a wonderful writer She writes about her life her family and her knitting heritage and the meaning of knitting in our lives She describes her mother's way of knitting she knit like a Russian Jew with her yarn in her left hand yarn wrapped around the second finger opening the stitch and pulling it through with her right hand needle It's a uick and efficient way to knit Funny enough this is how I knit I learned to knit from my Irish American mother but in college learned to knit continental from a friend I am often uestioned criticized and have even been chastised for the way I knit I know have a frame of reference I knit like the author's immigrant mother

    apologies to anyone who read an earlier version of this I pushed the wrong button and made it public before I was done with itI got an advance proof of this book from ALA Midwinter When I picked it up I was rather skeptical about whether I needed a book of heartwarming stories patterns and recipes but it was free so I took it My major uestion was does this kind of book have any value for me when I have Ravelry at hand and any number of heartwarming knitting blogs and posts and gazillions of other pattern books at hand?I believe that it does earn a place in my home because it is a book that I'd pick up again to reread the uest for the magically formed Turkish slippers or about the Mitten Ladies or likely to use one of the patterns in it The patterns are very practical and ordinary which means that they are ones you might turn to if you needed a basic workaday pattern for a uick gift or to use up a bit of stash No special yarn is needed There are patterns for first socks for wristlets and a scarf dishcloths a playtime cape a zigzag afghan I made one of the dishcloths it was exactly the pattern I needed to finish up a gift for an elderly aunt A plus is that the special techniues needed are explained at the back of the book I can't speak to the recipes though they are of the same ilk spaghetti sauce roasted root vegetables frosting; all ordinary foods you might need to make on short notice A final feature of the book is the author's book recommendations which are mostly knitting themedI've tucked the book into my knitting bag to remind myself that the patterns are available

    This was a very enjoyable book It is filled with stories about knitting personal recollections about the craft of knitting recipes and some easy projectsThe projects in the book could be made for personal use or for gift giving There's a lacey scarf I want to make and a baby blanket My friend in ireland just told me she's expecting so this pattern is going to come in handy very soon The book itself is very nice with drawings for each chapter and beautiful photos of the projects to makeGet this book for yourself and maybe one or two extra copies to give as gifts

    This was absolutely amazing I recommend this not only to knitters but bakers people devoted to their families etc This was a beautiful book I can't wait to share it with the other knitters in my life and to read again

  6. MrsRenee MrsRenee says:

    Was not at all what I expected I thought it would be a general type of book with patterns and recipes but it's simply one person's viewpoints on life and her family That's fine but not what the title implies I zipped through it in ten minutes couldn't find anything of interest
