'Beyond Stitch and Bitch' collects essays exploring the emotional and spiritual experiences common to women (and men) who knit. 'Women Are So Lucky Sometimes' shows the ways knitting brings women together and adds purpose to their lives. 'Elizabeth Zimmerman' describes the way a single woman turned the work of her hands into a legacy for generations of others. 'Stitch and Bitch' offers a lighthearted look at a Thursday-evening knitting circle and its eccentric regulars. Neither a how-to nor a collection of patterns, this wide-ranging book finds much more in knitting than might be imagined. Author Afi-Odelia Scruggs, a knitter for four decades, mines a wealth of insight from the craft’s colorful yarns, flashing needles, and the feelings they inspire and draw out. Photographs are included in this collection of thoughtful writings.

I really enjoyed it. It had a lot of history on knitting in it - and reflections on knitting & life. There were 3 patterns or so in the book, but nothing that I would really knit. Read full review
