KNITLANDIA is a collection of 17 essays reflecting on a decade's worth of Parkes's knitting-inspired road trips. She describes mills, sheep farms, yarn festivals, and shops around the world that you may want to add to your yarn bucket list. However, her delivery is merely competent, and a subtle change in her tone as she shares her interactions with the well-known and newbie knitters, weavers, dyers, and shopkeepers she meets in her travels seems somehow more gossipy than enlightening. If you're looking for a listening experience that enthusiastically shares the pleasures of the world of yarn and knitting, this probably isn't your best choice. Nonetheless, if you're interested in the technical aspects of turning wool into yarn, you'll be enlightened. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2016]
