Lela Nargi contributes articles on art, photography, and culture to a variety of national and international magazines.From Booklist:
Nargi, a beginning knitter, set out to interview and observe knitters of all levels to examine why people knit and what led them to pick up their needles and stitch away. The author met with knitters and crafters on both coasts and found women (and a couple of men) eager to share their thoughts on the craft. The "grandma knitter" stereotype is wrong--as evidenced by Nargi talking with people from various professions, ages, and walks of life. Fellow knitters will enjoy the unique stories of how people learn to knit, who taught them, and why they decided to learn. Nargi came across many colorful characters, including Edith Eig, owner of La Knitterie Parisienne in L.A and "knitter to the stars," and Eddie Kaufman, who says, "I am a large man, and due to my balding head, beard, and the fact that I ride a motorcycle, more people assume I am in a biker gang than in a knitting circle."
