Writers on Knitting and Knitters Writing. . .

This piece by Alison Lurie in the New Yorker titled "The Sweater Curse", led me to the book from which it is excerpted.  Knitting Yarns: Writers on Knitting, edited by Ann Hood includes essays by twenty-seven writers including Barbara Kingsolver, Elisabeth Berg, Ann Patchett and at least one man - Andre Dubus III - on the transformative power of knitting.  There are also five patterns included. It's out in November.

I'm also looking forward to Clara Parkes' The Yarn Whisperer: My Unexpected Life in KnittingI have all three of her previous books and read her Knitter's Review newsletter regularly.  I like the cover of this one very much.  It's out in September.
