Críticas:

I began reading Knitting Through It: inspiring stories for times of trouble a few months ago, sampling the WPA's Federal Writer's Project stories and the modern essays as time and whim allowed. The writings collected by Lela Nargi were interesting and shared fascinating stories, certain to appeal to knitters of all ages. Then, earlier this month, I got the news that my grandfather was dying and something propelled me to pop this little book into my suitcase. We arrived at Grandfather's bedside a few days before he passed away, and I spent some of my time there knitting. At night in the hotel room, Knitting Through It was my reading choice, and it provided comfort in the same way my needles and yarn did during the day. I read it cover to cover and then started over again. Suddenly the stories spoke to my grief directly and I found comfort in the generations of knitters who had experienced similar situations and found a way through it. Knitters are aware of the therapeutic nature of knitting: it calms us during periods of stress, makes us productive during periods of trouble and provides comfort when we gift our work to someone in sorrow. We knit for victims of war and natural disaster, for the homeless and dispossessed, we knit for those grieving and by doing so, we share part of ourselves. Knitting Through It shares those traditions in words, providing comfort and community for knitters. My grandfather passed away on May 1 after a long battle with illness. His legacy of spirituality and hard work were passed down to all his children and grandchildren. When I remember this time it will be with images of knitting, a fitting tribute since it was his wife, my grandmother, who helped me gain proficiency in my knitting. --Armchairinterviews dot com

Knititng is often heralded as a wonderfully effective method of therapy, and indeed many of us stich away our troubles when teh going gets tough. This all rings true in this wonderful new book. A collection of pieces form both contemporray authors and the American Federal Writers Project, Knitting Through it tells tales of knititing through adversity in rough climates and hard times; with hope (and yarn) conquering all in each and every tale. --Lets Knit January, 2009

A thoughtful and interesting collection of homespun wisdom - all concerning turning to knitting to get throguh difficult times. From knitting through wars and the depression to personal journays of giving up smoking, serving a jail term, and surviving ilness. Instead of being a depressing book this is a posiitve look at the menaing knitting has for people as a purpose, a focus, useful and helpfull. Excerpts form letters dating back form the 1930's to the 1830's and black and white photographs from various museum archives give a rich sense of history whilst contemporary writers give a present-day edge. A lovely read. --Knitting, December, 2008

Reseña del editor:

Most knitters know one absolute truth: getting through a difficult time often means knitting through it. It is this home truth - and the wisdom behind it - that comes through in the collection gathered in this book. These pieces - some by contemporary writers like Donna Druchunas and Sherri wood, others from sources as diverse as Federal Writer's Project, The Farmer's Wife Association - tell the story of knitting through adversity: the Great War, The Depression, times of political anxiety, unyielding prison terms, the hardships endured by Native American Indians over centuries. Men and women, young, old, rich, poor, black, white - their knitting narratives are poignant, often lyrical, rich with personal and cultural history and vivid imagery. They conjure up hardscrabble lives and immigrant experiences, the work of anxious hands kept busy creating warmth and beauty or earning desperately needed money.
