Objektiivselt võttes on kudujad kummaline seltskond, subjektiivselt, st meie endi arvates, pole toredamaid (loe normaalsemaid) inimesi olemaski. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee raamatuid ja blogi ongi alati nauding lugeda, sest kudujana jagab ta väga hästi, kuidas meiesugused mõtlevad ning oskab seda hea huumoriga kirja panna.
Olen seda raamatut juba mitmeid kord lugenud ja alati on lõbus ning äratundmisrõõmu tekitav. Mõned pärlid (tegelikult on terve raamat hea, aga kõike ei jõua ju siia ümber trükkida):
I love being married. It's so great to find one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life. - Rita Rudner.
It took me years and years of trial effects to work out that there is absolutely no knitting triumph I can achieve that my husband will think is worth being woken up.
As strange as I find this, I will try to respect it.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness" - Dave Barry
It's difficult for those who live with passionate knitters. From time to time, they might even consider us odd. Every time hm husband starts talking about how crazy I am like knitting this much, I remind him... It could be worse. What if I were this interested in cabbage?
I will not let non-knitters of the world decide how normal I am.
My knitting is in constant state of competition with the household chores. After years and years of painful juggling, I have almost completely decided to give up the housework. The way I see it, I can always clean up the house when I am old, but I'll never get this knitting time back.
Remember, dusting requires the same arm movement whether it has been a week or a month.
Ordinarily he was insane, but he had lucid moments when he was merely stupid. - Heinrich Heine.
I have been trying to get my stash of yarn under control. My husband thinks this means that I am trying to get rid of some yarn. In truth, it actually means that I have been trying to find much, much better hiding spots,
I will remember that there is more than one way to get control of an issue.
"At Knit's End" pole Stephanie Pearl-McPhee ainuke teos, juhul kui seda ette ei jää, siis teised on:
- "Yarn Harlot: The Secret Life of a Knitter"
- "Knitting Rules!: The Yarn Harlot's Bag of Knitting Tricks"
- "Stephanie Pearl-McPhee Casts Off: The Yarn Harlot's Guide to the Land of Knitting"
- "Things I Learned from Knitting (Whether I Wanted To or Not)"
- "Free-Range Knitter: The Yarn Harlot Writes Again"
- "All Wound Up"
Kõiki polegi mõtet lugeda, sest ta kipub end kordama.
