22,95

In The Yarn Whisperer: Reflections on a Life in Knitting, renowned knitter and author Clara Parkes ponders the roles knitting plays in her life via 22 captivating, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny essays. Recounting tales of childhood and adulthood, family, friends, adventure, privacy, disappointment, love, and celebration, she hits upon the universal truths that drive knitters to create and explores the ways in which knitting can be looked at as a metaphor for so many other things. Put simply, “No matter how perfect any one sweater may be, it’s only human to crave another. And another, and another.”

Author of five books including the New York Times bestselling Knitlandia, Clara has dedicated her life to figuring out what makes yarn tick—and finding the right words to write about it. She turned passion into profession in 2000 when she launched Knitter’s Review, the first comprehensive online knitting magazine and community.

Since then, through her writings, workshops, books, television and radio appearances, custom-sourced yarns, and yarn consulting services, Parkes has championed the notion of paying closer attention to what you knit and where it came from.

“Clara Parkes is the MFK Fisher of knitting: unflinching, all-seeing, mysterious—and also kind.” – Ann Shayne and Kay Gardiner of Mason-Dixon Knitting

She divides her time between city and country in Maine, always writing from a desk in the kitchen.
