From the fjords of Iceland to a cozy yarn shop in Paris's 13th arrondissement, Clara Parkes—author of The Yarn Whisperer—is a knitter in motion. "The specifics of the trip varied, but my underlying mission was always the same. I have become a yarn evangelist, and I travel in search of my congregation." In the 17 essays here, Parkes takes us along as she heads to such locales as Taos, Los Angeles, and Edinburgh, celebrating the creative life with eloquence and wit in such pieces as "Romancing the Loons," "Merriment in Minnetonka," "Stash-Wrangling in the Mile-High City," and "Perky Skeins and Fast Cars."
