Synopsis

In an era of global warming war escalating expenses declining income and drugs and violence in schools many mothers feel they have little control over their families or their worlds. Nora Murphy eloquently demonstrates that many women do control one tiny thing: their next stitch. While tracing the frustrations and joys of knitting a sweater for her son through the course of one cold dark Minnesota winter Murphy eloquently brings to life the traditions and cultures of women from many backgrounds including Hmong American Indian Mexican African and Irish. Murphys personal stories about her struggles to understand esoteric knitting patterns her help from the shaman of the knit shop and her challenges sticking with an often vexing project will appeal to knitters as well as everyone else who has labored to create something from scratch.
