Quick Overview

It Itches: A Stash of Knitting Cartoons is an affectionate, humorous celebration of every aspect of the craft from buying (and hiding) massive quantities of yarn to wrestling with projects that go seriously awry to prescriptions for alleviating the stress brought on by holiday knitting to wreaking revenge on recipients of handknits who stuff them into the back of the bottom drawer. It Itches is the first of its kind to mix cartoon humor with short essays on knitting. Franklin Habit is known for his witty writing and his New Yorker-style cartoons about knitting and life. The book includes seventy-five cartoons, deftly rendered in pen and ink with watercolour wash, in addition to humorous short essays on various themes of the knitting life.

Additional Information
About the Author Writer, illustrator, and photographer Franklin Habit’s first piece of knitting—a vaguely rectangular six-foot scarf—was produced during his student days at Harvard University in the 1990s. Until the widespread revival of the craft, he stitched in solitude, turning out a small but steady stream of mittens, scarves, and hats for startaled friends and relations. In February2005, inspired by the emergence of the online knitting community, he created The Panopticon (the-panopticon.blogspot.com). What began as a project diary is now one of the most popular knitting blogs, with mentions in publications as diverse as Knit 1 and The Advocate. Franklin’s publishing experience includes writing lifestyles features for the Boston Phoenix, reading his own essay for the knitting podcast Cast On, and writing for Interweave Knits, PieceWork, Yarn Market News, and Knitty.com. Franklin knits and spins in Chicago, Illinois.
