THE POWER OF KNITTING Stitching Together Our Lives in a Fractured World

by | Read by Elizabeth Wiley

Contemporary Culture • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Narrator Elizabeth Wiley brings her engaging style to this inspiring look at the role knitting has played throughout history. Written by a global economist with a lifelong passion for knitting and yarn, the audiobook is partly a personal journey of healing and partly a discovery of the many ways knitting can be a metaphor for life. Wiley draws the listener in as she tells of patriots and wartime revolutionaries producing woolen caps and socks for soldiers and the current "yarnbombers" who knit for social change. Wiley provides delightful voices for various knitters, ranging from grandmothers to a French circus strongman and to a Haight-Ashbury hippie. This is a must listen for anyone who knits and will encourage those who want to learn. Patterns are included. J.E.S. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2020]
