I thought I wasn't going to like this after the first chapter but it grew on me. Even,if you weren't a knitter I think this gentle series of stories read wonderfully by the author would engage you. Reminded me of old fashioned Saturday night radio stories. I loved the places and people it evoked. Will listen again and again.
Knitlandia is slightly sentimental but was an enjoyable listen for me as a listener who might never get to the events Parkes describes. Her destinations were a mix of festivals/events, personal travel, and professional visits to teach or meet with publishers.
However, I have no idea why she decided to do the accents for people she meets along her travels. Parkes is definitely better at impressions than many, but it's extremely embarrassing and distracting to hear a bad imitation of people she's describing with respect and curiosity
Excellent storytelling and delightful travels. I feel like I know more about my knitting and while I seldom travel as a single introvert this book created the impulse. If only my dog could go with

I really loved this audiobook! Clara Parkes' voice is soothing and gentle, her writing superb in it's imagery. I felt as if I was listening to a good friend tell me about her fiber adventures. Love the bits of humor here and there! Would recommend to any yarn/knitting/crochet/weaving/fiber fans beginner or expert and anyone who has one of the locations Clara visits in this book on their bucket list. I'm sad that I'm done listening to the book.
