‘The Museum of Kitschy Stitches’ by Stitchy McYarnpants

(Quirk, $34.99)From the testosterone-draining styles of his-and-hers sweaters to the twisted visions of world grannification, Stitchy demonstrates that one person’s creative breakthrough can be another person’s reason for running away and joining the circus to avoid yet another crocheted pantsuit. No patterns here, just a stroll down memories-best-left-repressed lane. Knitted kaftans? Crocheted pot plant holders? Hamburger pillow sets? With pickle? Possibly the funniest book I have ever read.
