Alanna Okun breezily narrates her own collection of essays, ostensibly about knitting and other crafts but actually about the author's young adult anxieties and triumphs. Okun's narration, lightly poignant and occasionally tongue-in-cheek, enhances her witty writing style. Her cheerful pace is marred only by occasional mispronunciations as she describes the power to be discovered by making something out of a pile of raw materials. Listeners need not be knitters or crafters to relish Okun's delightful, self-deprecating stories, but personal experience makes her tales more relatable. If you have unfinished projects stashed under your bed, you'll probably laugh out loud at this audiobook. And if you don't, this jaunty memoir might inspire you to buy a skein. Or two.
