One thought on “Knitting Through It: Inspiring Stories for Times of Trouble

  1. Rag Bag, is the craft related term that sprang to mind to describe this book I am passionate about knitting, but even so I found some of the bits somewhat random The photos are rather small and only black and white, and yet, if you love knitting, there s enough in here to keep you happy.I think the by line Inspiring Stories for Times of Trouble is perhaps a mistake it sets up expectations for tales of how knitting helps people and fewer historical scraps.I did like the historical items might re [...]


  2. I picked up this anthology because my friend, Barbara DeMarco Barrett s essay appears in it Besides stories of people knitting though all kinds of life situations, there were interesting bits of knitting history including photographs of things like men knitting in prison and copies of letters written to Abraham Lincoln that accompanied a knitted gift I found this fascinating


  3. I really liked the story towards the end about the woman knitting socks for her husband and chanting to herself I am sitting in the middle of my bed, knitting socks, in lieu of filing for divorce paraphrased and that really struck home for me.I liked the historical information and how this tradition has morphed through the years


  4. Just like my knitting, I finished this book in fits and starts I have knitted my way through long plane flights with three children under the age of seven, knitted through the death of my mother, and am currently knitting through the death of a 27 year marriage I ve seen joke items with the logo, I knit so I won t kill anyone.r me, that isn t just a figurative statement Sometimes I think of how far an aluminum needle could pierce body parts, but the only person who has been skewered so far has b [...]


  5. Quick book to get through All the stories within were different I like the idea of stories from the Library of Congress and various other libraries works, but it felt like a bibliography book Many of the stories were short and in first person, so that made the reader have to adjust to each stories quickly Nice little stories, but I guess I was looking for depth in the idea of Knitting Through It Inspiring Stories for Times of Trouble instead of just a history lesson Enjoyed the few black and wh [...]


  6. I have an essay in this knitting anthology Knitting My Urban Escape, but truthfully, I would have bought this book anyway I love knitting narratives of this kind and always buy them So many good pieces in this book and photographs, too The photograph of the Sing Sing prisoners knitting is priceless.


  7. I read this book in two days it s a fast, enjoyable read It inspired me to pull out a pair of my knitting needles that have been gathering dust the last two years I particularly liked it because it reminded me of my good friend Erica who I wish I could knit with and see often.


  8. light read, some interesting stories mostly the old ones , the newer stories besides the Alaskan one were not so great.


  9. Wonderful little book of women knitting through life s challenges hard times.Excellent read I give this one as a gift at times, when appropriate.
