Named one of the top 10 lifestyle books for fall 2017 by Publisher's Weekly.
In tales from twenty-one knitters, Clara Parkes examines a subject that is irresistible to us all: the yarn stash.
Anyone with a passion has a stash, whether it is a collection of books or enough yarn to exceed several life expectancies. With her trademark wry, witty approach, Parkes brings together fascinating stories from all facets of stash-keeping and knitting life--from KonMari minimalist to joyous collector, designer to dyer, spinner to social worker, scholar to a sheep farmer.
Whether the yarn stash is a muse, memento, creative companion, career guide, or lifeline in tough times, these deeply engaging stories take a surprising and fascinating look at why we collect, what we cherish, and how we let go.
