Stephanie Pearl-McPhee reads her own "'travelogue"' to the Land of Knitting. She introduces us to the population, what to pack (how many projects should you pack for vacation?), environmental issues (keeping your stash of yarn under control), politics (natural fibers vs. acrylic), common ailments (second-sock syndrome; finish-it-itis), etiquette (when is it okay to knit in public?), and multiple other faux travel topics. "Casts Off" is a conversational book poking gentle, affectionate fun (as opposed to needling!) at those who are permanent residents of the Land of Knitting. The production is enhanced by Pearl-McPhee's down-to-earth style and clear Canadian accent. She reads with a wink and a smile, and her yarns will make you smile too.
