This feisty and inspiring treatise blames the destructive cultural myth of female self-sacrifice for the desire for breast implants, the conservative insistence on family values, and the general cultural attitude that prevents women from supporting one another's accomplishments. Using everything from psychological analysis to clever fairy-tale parodies--called "fairer tales"--the author promotes an ideology for women that is neither bra-burning feminism nor passive conservatism, but rather a belief in self-development.

'Stories that will curl your toes, make you laugh out loud and break your heart all at the same time.' PROFESSOR DAME SUE BLACK, author of All That Remains Why would anyone want to work with thieves, murderers and rapists? Told from the inside out, this is a harrowing, humorous and hard-hitting tale of life behind bars by a prison doctor who has seen it all. Literally. Dr Shahed Yousaf spends his time running between emergencies - from overdoses to assaults, from cell fires to suicides - with one hand perpetually hovering over the panic button. Being a prison doctor is not for the faint-hearted. An outsider on the inside, in Stitched Up he introduces us to a cast of unforgettable characters, including killers, con men and auto-cannibals. To Dr Yousaf, they are patients first and prisoners second - because any one of us could end up on the wrong side of the law. Dedicated to caring for people on the margins of society, he tells us honestly and compassionately what it's like to be their doctor in a system that's chronically overcrowded, drastically under-resourced and all too easy to ignore. But while the system is failing, he and his colleagues are doing their very best to prop it up. In stories that are frequently harrowing, sometimes humorous and always hard-hitting, we discover how difficult it is to be locked up - but that there is still hope for all those who dare to care. For fans of This is Going to Hurt, The Secret Barrister and A Bit of a Stretch
(K4, K2tog) 4 times, K4 = 24 stitches. P4, P2tog, (P3, P2tog) 3 times, P3 = 20 stitches. Then cut the yarn and use a wool needle to thread it through these 20 stitches and fasten it off. Sew up the sides = one stripy beanie hat!

When murder pierces the fabric of the close-knit Crandalsburg Craft Fair, it's up to the Ninth Street Knitters to make a killer slip their stitch. The Craft Fair may have hit a few snags lately, but knitting enthusiast Lia Geiger is hopeful her quiet life will return to its usual patterns in no time. Her daughter has officially moved back home, and sure, the house is a little crowded with Hayley's take-home work from the alpaca farm, but that's a price Lia will happily pay. All seems well until Cori Littlefield, a new vendor with a gift for crochet, is found dead, sending shock waves through all of Crandalsburg. What begins as a tragic accident turns into a snarled spool of lies that only the combined efforts of the Ninth Street Knitters can untangle. When Lia makes a connection between Cori's death and a decades-old murder, it's up to her to weave together the clues and find the truth.

Cathy Jakicic captures the untapped market of beginner stitchers. No one has made a book this simple yet creative. The book contains 20 basic stitching projects that result in pretty, fashion-forward jewelry. She very cleverly adds project variations, with instructions that expand the number of projects to 40+. Each variation is very different from the core design. Each design has a stitching element, some flat designs, and some 3D. This book has something for everyone and is a great value.
