It Itches - Book Review

"It Itches" is a hilarious book of cartoons and essays on the mysterious ways of a knitter and their stash. When reading it I laughed a lot seeing in each page a reflection of myself or someone I know. Franklin's essays and cartoons hit the mark, his obvious knowledge of our strange ways from living among the herd of wild knitters who are skittish by nature.
Favourite parts: The Man vs Skein essay & the mid-Victorian ideas about gender cartoon.

This book would make a wonderful gift for the knitter in your life.
