Being a knitter, the title Sweater Quest My Year of Knitting Dangerously called to me. Then when I got into the book I found it very entertaining. It was a factual story about a woman who said she had a bumper sticker that says " I knit so I don't kill people". I want one of those. Knitting is a relaxing repetitive hobby that allows you to create at the same time
In the book Sweater Quest My year of knitting dangerously Adrienne tells us about having post partem depression that was only stopped by knitting.
The sweater she is questing after is one that the pattern is no longer in print and the yarn you are supposed to use is no longer made. That is why she is questing after this sweater which will be beautiful if made correctly with the specified colors of yarn.
