A Knitter's Home Companion

Knitting at Home: 60 Classics from Ella Rae Designs
by Michelle Edwards
Photographs by Jen Gotch
Publisher: Abrams Books
ISBN: 1584799161

Reviewed By Caitlin Kavanaugh, Editor for

A Knitter's Home Companion by Michelle Edwards is more than just a book about knitting.  It's a book about family and what's most important in life.  This snippet from the introduction sums up the experience of reading this book well:


 "Knitting is not just a metaphor.  Knitting is a life.  And because my knitting flows into what i draw and write, what I cook, and what I read, this illustrated gathering of stories is connected to recipes, patterns, and books.  Let it keep you company when you need another knitter's voice beside you." 


Together, this well thought collection of patterns, recipes and stories, offers a window into Edward's life, but in many ways, it also offers a window into the human soul.  Within its four sections, the reader is taken through a whirlwind of emotions.  As Edwards' essays guide the reader through her life and experiences, you'll find yourself inspired to laugh, to cry, to hope and to remember all of the good times.  If you've never felt driven to create, you will after reading this book.  Whether you express that creative desire by knitting a gift for a close friend or by preparing a homemade meal for your family, you'll find a charming group of patterns and recipes to choose from. Among the 12 knit projects and 9 delicious recipes featured, I had trouble choosing a favorite.  Every recipe and pattern is accompanied by a story.  By the end of the book, you'll consider Edwards to not only be the author of one of your new favorite novels, but also a close friend.
