The craft of knitting is devoted to making useful things, and the craft of embroidery is devoted to making useful things beautiful:Splendid Apparel brings these two crafts together. Anna Zilboorg begins with richly textured knit fabrics then adds embroidery for emphasis, color, detail, and sheen. The book includes a dozen example embroidery stitches and a library of more than 50 textured knit patterns, and the swatches— photographed both as they come off the knitting needles and after embroidery is added— clearly show the transformations and provide springboards for further experimentation. Stitch basics and step-by-step illustrations help a novice learn the simple motions, try variations, and add a contrasting color, while Anna's cogent comments identify where a knit stitch may require special attention and adjustments to make the embroidery steps easier. The 18 full patterns in this book are all basic shapes—a few with innovative, join-as-you-go construction.

In this darkly comic novel, the six women of the Knitting Circle meet every week to talk, eat cake, and make fabulous sweaters. The easy-going circle undergoes a drastic change when the members realize they are all the survivors of rape—worse still, that none of their attackers suffered consequences—and the group becomes the vengeful Knitting Circle Rapist Annihilation Squad, taking punishment into their own hands via their knitting needles. As the women take their revenge, groups of men issue statements against the vigilante ladies, from the Chamber of Commerce to the sinister Men Against Women Against Rape (MAWAR), plotting to stop and punish the Knitting Circle. Featuring strong female characters, this satirical piece explores love, revenge, feminism, violence, and knitting.

The men who came to strangle me were shrinking my world like the most delicately tinted of bubbles, shrinking in ever narrowing circles from the upward gush of my own infancy. You've got to be crazy to see a psychiatrist. Don't call me if you're gnawing on a bad day, and all you want to do is have a discussion. We all marry our mirrors, someone who reflects how we feel about ourselves at the moment. Every wife is a mirror of her own husband's failures, and every husband a reflection of his wife's successes. If you want to make money, you find a void in society and fill it. With more than 60 percent of women being snuffed, it's no wonder a sharp promoter saturated the market with anarchists feeling their inadequacies. Their words fall like an embroidered saddle on a jackass. Remember when only female failures married when career success eluded them? Anarchists' dolls don't expand into motherhood. They're squeezed into silver plated girdles where the only private space is a purse.

Every type of person came to Occupy Wall Street: kids who dropped out of college for it, hobos who hopped a freight and walked hundreds of miles, environmentalists who swabbed the Liberty Plaza streets with vinegar, bright and early every morning, acupuncturists who could work in tight spaces, family men with a sideline in poetry, Christians, union members, knitting grandmothers, libertarians, anarchists of every stripe, Democrats and Republicans, normal people with the interests and vices of the normal, people whose lives had veered off the path of the mainstream, 9/11 first responders, war veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan. Whether they were young or old, bearded or clean-shaven, tattooed or unmarked, destitute or well-to-do, they found each other in a shanty-town at the bottom of Manhattan in the fall of 2011. All came because they were saddened and fed up with the state of America in this new century. All came to voice their grievances and stand up for their beliefs. All came to speak loudly for themselves and for those who had not yet found their voice. Though the tents were knocked down and the library books thrown in dumpsters, this lawful, peaceful and inspiring assembly, representative of a various and multitudinous American populace, lives on. Visit the occupation in the pages of Why We Occupy, a book that captures the immediacy and vitality of a chaotic and beautiful protest movement, one that continues to burn just below the surface like the undoused embers of an incipient forest fire.
