Clara Parkes - The Yarn Whisperer


In The Yarn Whisperer: Reflections on a Life in Knitting ($19.95), renowned knitter and author Clara Parkes ponders the roles knitting plays in her life in  22 captivating, poignant, and laugh-out-loud funny essays. Recounting tales of childhood and adulthood, family, friends, adventure, privacy, disappointment, love, and celebration, she hits upon the universal truths that drive knitters to create and explores the ways in which knitting can be looked at as a metaphor for so many other things. Put simply, "No matter how perfect any one sweater may be, it's only human to crave another. And another, and another."

Clara Parkes, a celebrated raconteur, is the bestselling author of The Knitter’s Book of Yarn, The Knitter’s Book of Wool, and The Knitter’s Book of Socks. She is also the founder and publisher of KnittersReview.com, a weekly e-newsletter that explores the pleasures and subtleties of yarn and was described by Folio Magazine as “what Cook’s Illustrated is to foodies.” She resides in Portland, Maine.
