Knitting fans will delight at this generously illustrated collection of interrelated and hysterical adventures of Dolores Van Hoofen, a Romney sheep that arrives at Franklin's city doorstep to fulfill an online order placed for “Romney roving” yarn. Quickly growing tired of the chintz-covered apartment that she’s been brought into, this winsome ewe develops an insatiable appetite for the glamorous life. Dolores embarks on several schemes to get rich—from working at a yarn store and entering beauty pageants, to opening a nightclub and landing an internship at an unsuspecting knitting magazine—with varying degrees of success and legality. Pulled from the popular Panopticon blog and never before published, these wild tales are layered with knitting humor and clever cartoons as they follow each outrageous episode in the life of this irreverent and unpredictable bellweather.
