Warm up with ‘Ten Poems about Knitting’

Warm up with 'Ten Poems about Knitting'

Published on Thursday 8 January 2015

January can feel colourless and cold. But not this year! We have come to the rescue with Ten Poems about Knitting, a pamphlet of irresistible poems that will warm anybody up – poems about the joys of plain, purl and cable stitches and the magical moment when you open the door of the local wool shop onto hushed knitters, heads bowed over patterns, flicking through the pages in search of the perfect cardigan….

We’re pleased to include work by some excellent local poets (and knitters) as well as poets and knitters from further afield.

Ten Poems about Knitting is for people who love knitting and poetry – including men, if you were wondering. Any men who still think that knitting is women’s work need to read Christopher James’ poem ‘The Manly Art of Knitting’. And for women who love nothing more than sitting in the warmth of their home, the window-seat of a bus or a favourite café while they cast on, cast off, this title is an absolute must.

Where there’s life, there’s knitting. It’s official. And you read it here first.
