I bought this book online shortly after it was released and started reading it the night it arrived in the mail. The book bills itself as “a compendium of articles, useful and otherwise, for the edification and amusement of the handknitter.” And that’s exactly what it is – little fun facts, folklore and bits of history about knitting, crochet and related fiber arts. For example, did you know that knitting burns 102 calories per hour?

This little hardcover book has an attached red ribbon as a bookmark. At 129 pages I easily could have finished it in a weekend but tried to space out my enjoyment.
As a fun note, and one reason I wanted to read this book, the first hat I ever knit was the Ribby Toque by Carol Sulcoski, the author of this book. She has about 152 designs on Ravelry.
A wide variety of topics
Truly fun facts that for the most part I’d never seen before
Given the size of the (height and width) the print seems small
No digital version
My Grade: A
