The Expressive Creatrix (and Hobbyist)











I finished this cute little book the other day.  I loved it!  Ms. McPhee, a/k/a the Yarn Harlot is amazingly insightful and witty!  In this quick read, she uses quotations as springboards for her reflections on knitting. For example, she quotes Lee Iacocca – “People want economy, and they will pay any price to get it” and relates her foray into spinning her own yarn.  When her husband was skeptical, she pointed out how much money she was going to save on pre-spun yarn by buying fleece and spinning it herself.  Then she went on to buy a spinning wheel, carders, fleece and dye!

Even as a new knitter I found myself relating to a lot of Ms. McPhee’s thoughts.  I definitely enjoy her humorous take on a knitting obsession!  Highly recommended for anyone who knits!
