Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater: essays on Crafting
by Alanna Okun
"You can't really know what a project is going to be until it's done. This is true of many things - books, recipes, relationships - and it is especially true of knitting."
In this beautifully written collection of essays on crafting, Alanna Okun reduces anxiety and celebrates life through crafting. Chapters like How to Start Over, Things I've Used Knitting Needles For Besides Knitting, and Second Sock Syndrome have drawn comparisons to Nora Ephron and David Sedaris.
