Are you ready to cozy up with a book about knitting? Following in the footsteps of Knitting Yarns, Ann Hood has gathered 24 writers to pen essays about knitting in Knitting Pearls: Writers Writing About Knitting. Included in this paper bound knit night are : Anne Bartlett, Stuart O’Nan, Laura Lippman, Jane Hamilton, and the one and only Diana Gabaldon (yes, she knits). Knitterati Clara Parkes and Jared Flood also make an appearance.
Because a book so thoroughly drenched with knitting absolutely shouts for patterns, Knitting Pearls obliges with five accessories and a tea cozy from six legendary U.S. yarn shops, Purl Soho, Hill Country Weavers, Churchmouse Yarns & Teas, Loop, The Yarnery and Knit Purl.
W. W. Norton has supplied us with 5 copies of Knitting Pearls to give away, I know you want one!

Jillian is the author of the best-selling spinning book Yarnitecture. She is the editor of Knittyspin and Developmental Editor for PLY and PLY Books. She kinda loves this spinning thing and wants everyone who spins to love it too, so she teaches and writes a lot. She knits, weaves, and stitches and tries to do as much of it as she can with handspun yarn. She's always cooking up all kinds of exciting and creative things combining fiber arts.
She likes her mysteries British, her walks woodsy, and to spend as much time as she can laughing.
