Ten Poems About Knitting
Whether you're proficient with purl, canny with cable or don’t know your size 9s from your shoe size, here are ten irresistible poems about the joys of knitting.
“If space is made of superstrings, Then God's a knitter, everything Is craft, and perhaps we could darn Tears in the space-time continuum.”
- from 'The Symbolism of Ancient Sweaters' by Gwyneth Lewis
Whether you're proficient with purl, canny with cable or don’t know your size 9s from your shoe size, here are ten irresistible poems about the joys of knitting. Stitches morph into poems in which needles flash like rapiers, wool is wound into balls and the door of the local wool shop opens onto hushed knitters, heads bowed over patterns, flicking through the pages in search of the perfect cardigan...
Knitting for love, knitting for life, knitting for neighbourly togetherness – the poems in this book ravel us closer and tighter.
Poems by: Emily Dickinson, Jane Duran, Sue Dymoke, Roy Fisher, Christopher James, Jackie Kay, Gwyneth Lewis, Liz Lochhead, Allison McVety, Jessie Pope and Lydia Towsey.
