Knitlandia

Clara Parkes


Over the last decade, Clara Parkes has clocked so many travel miles that she’s 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’s 13th arrondissement, 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.
