Yarn Harlot, that is. Stephanie Pearl-McPhee is a former doula turned professional knitter and writer-about-knitting. She also writes a highly entertaining and very sweet blog. As part of her latest book tour she went to London for a few days; on her last day she went for a wander and wandered right into a cathedral. The whole travellogue is wonderful; her description of her atheist faith is beautiful; the comments from four self-identified UUs is icing on the cake. We (your clergy) work so hard to get people past the odd sort of shame that seems to hang over liberal religion, that it’s very gratifying to see evidence that some people are really claiming the beauty of this faith.

If you have any affinity for art, architecture, or travel, go look. Aside from a few random pictures that include a stripey sock, there’s nothing very knitter-specific there, just a whole lot of beautiful photographs and accompanying prose. Yum.
