Over the last decade, Clara Parkes has clocked so many travel miles that shes 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, 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.
Clara Parkes, a celebrated raconteur and highly sought-after teacher, is the author of The Yarn Whisperer, as well as The Knitters Book of Yarn, The Knitters Book of Wool, and The Knitters Book of Socks. She is also the founder and publisher of knittersreview.com, a biweekly e-newsletter that explores the pleasures and subtleties of yarn. She lives in Maine.
