Not All Grannies Knit: How to be a Bad Grandmother by Joan Pritchett
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Every first-time grandmother finds grandmotherhood quite a shock - nobody asks you how you feel about it. One minute you're a busy, youthful person getting on with life and the next you're being told the 'fantastic' news and finding yourself forever relegated to the older generation. Joan Pritchett guides new grandmothers through the experience with this wry and witty guide to grannyhood. From the initial shock ('Is this going to be a nuisance for me?'), to the journey through pregnancy ('Try not to laugh when the expectant couple start talking about how beautiful natural childbirth is'), to the thorny issues of names and the even thornier issue of the competitive, "Other Grandmother, Not All Grannies Knit" takes an honest look at this celebrated milestone from the perspective of someone who has never knitted a bootee in her life. Beautifully illustrated throughout, this is a spirited and irreverent celebration of the joys - and otherwise - of acquiring grandchildren.
