Présentation de l'éditeur

At Knit's End captures the wickedly funny musings of someone who doesn't believe it's possible to knit too much and who willingly sacrifices sleep, family, work, and sanity in order to keep doing it. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee has seen it all, from the deadly “second sock syndrome” to a house so full of yarn she can't find her washing machine to desperate all-nighters spent feverishly finishing gifts. This hilarious collection of 300 tongue-in-cheek meditations will have knitters everywhere in stitches.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Pour toutes les tricoteuses ! 9 août 2010
Par Lea67
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Ce livre est a mettre entre les mains de toutes les accros au tricot. Du moment où l'on comprend un minimum l'anglais, c'est même un bon moyen de progresser. Il s'agit d'une compilation de pensées, de faits vécus par l'auteur et de bons conseils. Chaque "histoire" fait 1 ou 2 pages et se présente comme le commentaire d'une citation. Certaines sont complètement sorties de leur contexte, et on a forcément droit à quelques fous rires.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Short, sweet and funny! 25 mars 2005
Par D. Boyken - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This small gem of a book is just a delight for anyone who knits (or who knows a knitter). It's filled with little essay-like "meditations" about knitting, obsession, family, stashes of yarn . . . all things that any person who knits can appreciate. Each entry is short and sweet--some only a paragraph long, some a page or two--but they're unreservedly fun. Each is headed by a delicious quote, too, by knitters and non-knitters alike, and then summed up in Ms. Pearl-McPhee's own, sparkling way. It's a small little book, but easy to flip through, and I must for any knitter's library.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 It's like looking into a mirror 29 novembre 2005

This little book is so much fun and every knitter who's a little bit serious (I would not call myself obsessed with knitting but I always squeeze some knitting in my schedule - even if my work week goes really crazy and beyond the 80 hours per week :))about her/his knitting will recognise themselves and their thoughts while reading this book.

I like the format in particular - you can pick it up, have a good time reading it, put it away for a while and then just pick up where you left off w/o an issue.

Without a doubt, I would buy it again.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 What a great knitter's book! 15 octobre 2005
Par Armchair Interviews - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Knitters rejoice! Here's a book just for you, small enough to carry in your purse. At Knit's End: Meditations for Women Who Knit Too Much by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is an inspirational and humorous look at life through the eyes of a knitter. The brief vignettes offer insight into the "hobby" that often becomes an "obsession" with the people who practice the craft.

The Craft Yarn Council of America states that 1 in 3 women know how to knit or crochet. Many of these knitters have crossed over from being well-balanced to an uncontrollable compulsion (what a wonderful compulsion!). Pearl-McPhee's book is a refreshing and entertaining approach to recognizing and accepting this compulsion.

Many of the stories will elicit ah-ha moments. Others will provide relief as you discover someone else thinks about knitting as you do. And still other musings will give you permission to continue the obsession that gives so much pleasure to you and those who receive your loving gift. My favorite musing is on page 297. You'll have to read the book to discover my ah-ha moment.

The author begins the book with a bang as she discusses the miracle that knitting consists of only two stitches--knit and purl. Knitters know this but to read it is something else: "Know these two stitches; rule the world."

Armchair Interviews says: This is the perfect gift for that knitter in your life. The problem is they will be reading rather than knitting. Well, we all need balance in our lives. We highly recommend!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Is laughing gonna' hurt you? 5 avril 2005
Par Dena/Daniel Bugel-Shunra - Publié sur Amazon.com

If you're just after surgery, stay away from this book.

If you don't like laughing so hard that you can't breathe, just keep your mouse away from that "buy now" button.

If you actually want to DO something between the moment you lay your hands on the book and the moment you finish reading the whole thing, spare yourself the anguish.

If you've got appendicitis... ...NOT the book for you.

But if you don't mind having a prolonged series of giggles at life's sublime ironies, buy a copy. Buy it because it's the funniest book to be published in 2005. Buy it to encourage Ms. Pearl-McPhee to keep writing. And knitting. Buy it - and drop by her blog to let her know you've done it.

But only if you don't mind some hearty laughter.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 the perfect companion for frustrated knitters 27 mai 2005
Par knitting librarian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I wasn't at all interested in purchasing this book at first because why would I want to spend money on a knitting book without pictures or patterns? Finally I did buy it, because almost every page is a gem with advice and humour for the frustrated knitter.

This is the book to pick up when you've had it up to here with a difficult pattern, or realize that you need to rip back a day's worth of work. The author soothes the reader with such wisdom as, "the first thing you should think when you notice that you used the wrong color 12 rows back on your complex Fair Isle sweater is that there is no shame in knitting an 'interpretation' of a pattern." She then self-deprecatingly notes that she's so creative that innovative design just happens by accident. On the same page is a quote that states it's easy to stop making mistakes... just stop having ideas. Suddenly, that misplaced yarn-over several rows back seems barely visible, and even better, possible to live with.
