It itches : [a stash of knitting cartoons]

by Franklin Habit

Paper Book, 2008






An affectionate and humorous celebration of every aspect of the craft of knitting, from buying--and hiding--massive quantities of yarn to wrestling with projects that go seriously awry to prescriptions for alleviating the stress brought on by holiday knitting. This witty collection represents a pitch-perfect send up of one of the most rapidly growing hobbies today. Including 75 cartoons, deftly rendered in pen and ink with watercolor wash, and several humorous short essays, every knitter is sure to find elements of themselves in this collection.

Just the tonic after a hard day at the office.

The cartoons were quite clever and funny, but I didn't care much for the so called "essays." Essays should be fact, not imagination. "Fiction" would have been a better description.

A cute book with knitting cartoons and some short essays about knitting. Its cute. Not much else.
