Review:


"I whipped through the book quickly on my first read, but I expect it is the kind of book that I will dip into here and there, for a quick laugh or pick-me-up. (...) Overall, I found the book to be a charming addition to my knitting library, and recommend it with no hesitation." --Karen Greene, Through The Yarny Curtain

"Long gone are the days where knitting was as sure fire a way to send you to sleep as a cheeky Valium just ask Elvira Woodruff. The children's book author has turned her attention to the wooly stuff. This collection of knitting-related essays and tongue-in-cheek answers to common casting-on problems, interspersed with real patterns, will put a wry smile on your face as your hands make magic with those needles." --My Daily UK

"I love this book! It is cleverly written in the voice of Mrs. Wicks who is like a Dear Abby for knitters. The format is that a knitter sends Mrs. Wicks a question. Mrs. Wicks aka Elvira answers the question with humour, honesty, and the wisdom of a long-time knitter." --Getting Stitched on the Farm with Kristen Nicholas

"It’s a great read and I think it would make the perfect gift for any avid knitter as there are tips galore and even patterns." --Lucinda Guy, Hand Knits & Things
