Just in case you haven't heard, Clara's new book is to be released on September 1st. It's The Yarn Whisperer: My Unexpected Life in Knitting.

"Clara Parkes is the MFK Fisher of knitting: unflinching, all-seeing, mysterious—and also kind. In this collection of beautifully wrought essays, Clara explores the territory where knitting overlaps with a life well lived." - Ann Shayne and Kay Gardiner, Mason-Dixon Knitting

The essays are pure Clara—and I can't wait to have a finished copy in my hands!

Its sooo exciting!! I'm stalking Amazon trying to will the order status to go from Not Yet Shipped to Shipped. I wonder if anyone has seen it "in the wild" at any bookstores?

Confession: A publishing friend had a copy of the uncorrected proofs and let me borrow it. The introduction made me sob. I felt so Understood! So Known!

I had to give the bound proofs back to my friend, but I'm looking forward to seeing the finished book, so I can get past that soul-shattering intro. Congratulations, Clara!

edited to add: Just to clarify, this was an above board, legit copy of the book. My friend received it from Clara's publisher at a convention in New York for promotional purposes.

I just listened to Clara reading a chapter and loved it. Now I'm really having a hard time waiting for it to arrive.

Pre-ordered yesterday. Now to bug the publisher to "let" Clara record it. I love listening to her read to me.

Got mine yesterday - had been waiting and waiting for the UPS man. I heard the truck outside while we were having dinner and I ran out to meet him, I practically snatched it out of his hands. What Miriam said - it's Clara on paper!


Knit and let knit!

My copy just arrived, evening is planned. Today has been a fiber today. The Jefferson County, WI fiber festival is this weekend and I spent the morning with all things sheepy.
