"Knitting Saved My Life"-- Ann Hood

Ann Hood, author of the major bestseller, The Knitting Circle, will share the stage with UAlbany Professor Emeritus Eugene Mirabelli this afternoon and tonight.

Ann Hood speaking about The Knitting Circle: "A few years ago I was afraid I would never be able to write again.... During that time when I wasn't reading or writing, I learned how to knit. Knitting, I believe, saved my life. But it also introduced me to a new world of yarn and colors and textures and of people. Sitting in various knitting circles, I slowly learned that knitting had rescued other women too. Bad marriages, illness, addiction-knitting gave comfort and even hope through life's trials."
