She’s back. And quirkier than ever. In her debut narrative, Drunk, Divorced, and Covered in Cat Hair, blogger extraordinaire Laurie Perry gave people a hilarious yet heartfelt glimpse into her misadventures as a recent divorcée with three cats, a slight wine and Cheetos problem, and scores of unfinished—and—uneven knitting projects.
Now, in her second installment, Home is Where the Wine Is (February 2010; HCI), Laurie Perry once again shows how all of us can keep reaching for our bliss while finding the happy in every day.
She’s done drunk-dialing her ex, and has moved on to make the best out of the “extra odd bits”—both in knitting and in life. As she searches high and low for enlightenment in Los Angeles, she ventures to the most exotic foreign locations; the gym, a therapist’s office, a self-tanning emporium, and the bikini waxer to the stars.
Whether readers are Laurie Perry fans, knitting veterans, glue-gun novices, dating again, cat lovers, or simply looking for a good read, they’ll find more adventures, eclectic projects, and, of course, more cocktails on Laurie’s quest to make the best out of life in a topsy-turvy world.
As an added bonus, Home is Where the Wine Is also includes more than a dozen knitting recipes with patterns, step-by-step instructions, and photos, including:
* Personal Massager Cozy
* Quick Knit Date-Night Bag
* Felted Wine Bottle Cozy
* Wine Glass Flip-Flop Coaster
* Knitted Swiffer Cover
