It's called Follow The Yarn-The Wit & Wisdom of Ann Sokolowski, by Reba Linker. Here's an excerpt from the introduction that lays the foundation for the book:
Ann had a rare gift to touch people’s lives. In “Follow the Yarn” my personal story of healing shares the pages with Ann’s copious knitting tips, and with the wit and wisdom in her approach to teaching and to creating knit wear. Throughout, Follow the Yarn is a tribute to Ann Sokolowski, a New York original, and a quietly extraordinary individual.
In the book, Reba's connection with her knitting tutor, Ann, intertwines very closely with the pearls of wisdom that Ann passed on in class. It's a very poignant story, especially when you realise how short a time they had known each other.
If you like reading autobiographies, and enjoy knitting you'll enjoy this book. After reading it, I have more confidence to go out and just knit something, independent of a pattern. I'll definitely be keeping this one on file, and coming back to in future.
