Knitlandia Summary


Knitlandia: A Knitter Sees the World by Clara Parkes

Over the last decade, Clara Parkes has clocked so many travel miles that she's essentially taken off from or landed in a new city every two weeks. In Knitlandia, she takes readers along on 17 of her most memorable voyages, big and small, from the fjords of Iceland to a cozy yarn shop in Paris's 13th arrondissement, from a noisy spinning mill in Taos to a fledgling festival in Edinburgh. With her usual mix of eloquence and humor, Parkes weaves a masterful narrative that is both personal and universal, touching on the heart of what it means to be a knitter.

Knitlandia Reviews


"A life entwined in yarn might mystify those who don't knit, but anyone versed in the language of skeins and cables will sigh with envy over Clara Parkes's new memoir, Knitlandia. Non-knitters will likely skip Parkes's slender volume, thus missing a fresh view of destinations both exotic and ordinary. But those who pick up a copy for a knitting friend should dip into a chapter or two. They'll soon wonder how quickly they can learn to wield needles and yarn, fashioning a shawlette or sweater that Clara Parkes would applaud."--The Washington Post online
