In tales from twenty-one knitters, Clara Parkes examines a topic that may be impossible to resist to us all: the yarn stash.
Anyone with a passion has a stash, whether this is a choice of books or enough yarn to exceed a few life expectancies. Along 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 sheep farmer.
Whether the yarn stash is muse, memento, creative companion, career guide, or lifeline in tough times, these deeply engaging stories take a surprising and fascinating have a look at why we collect, what we cherish, and how we let go.
