    In that very short excerpt, the f-word appears twice. I definitely won’t be buying the whole book. Didn’t she have an editor or is this deemed acceptable these days?

      Hi, Linda – I’ve edited this post to exclude the word. Her book is published by Flatiron Books, based in NYC.

    Well, I am going to purchase her book. She describes me to the hilt and I’m a beginner knitter although I learned when I was 10, I’m 63 now. As for the curse words, people skip over them if they offend you. Darn it!

    I liked what I read. Glad you edited it. I’m 80, have been knitting for a number of years. Never going beyond shawls, scarves, ponchos and hats. I started a pair of socks, took me many years and 2 husband’s. Later gave them to a person who has enough imagination to use them as dust mitts. I’m proud they found a home.
