Wrinkle in Time Reissue

Posted on | May 17, 2007 | 3 Comments

I just read that one of my favorite books of all time is being re-issued for its 45th anniversary. Of course, A Wrinkle in Time has been in print continuously as far as I know throughout its 45 year life – and justifiably so. As a kid, I hungrily devoured all of the adventures of the Murray and O’Keefe clan – even such peripheral Murray/O’Keefe books like Dragon in the Waters and The Arm of the Starfish. And I’m in awe of Ms. L’Engle’s reach over the decades, inspiring and delighting young readers. It’s a wonderful, powerful, and lasting legacy.

In other news, Knitter’s Review is doing a review of Punta Del Este’s yarn. I was lucky enough to knit with Mericash for a sample for Knitting Etc and I have to second Clara’s review – it’s a really soft yarn. Knitting with it was *so* enjoyable, that I was a little sad when I cast off that last stitch (a little sick, I know…). I don’t really know how it holds up since it was 1) a sample and 2) a baby sweater – which tends to wear differently than larger pieces I think. The fabric almost seemed felted already since it was very soft and singly plied. But it made a very pleasant fabric and the subtle color variations are gorgeous. Lucky Ithacans also have access via Knitting Etc to Punta Del Este’s linen, cotton, and wool yarns too.

    I heard that the re-issued version of A Wrinkle in Time contains many updates to make it a story that takes place in the present day. For example, Mrs. Whatsit no longer refers to the evil entity as the “Dark Thing” but instead calls it “Global Warming.” Also, I understand Meg has to use more than just love for Charles Wallace to combat IT, and instead is forced to build a Coalition of the Willing (which Calvin declines to join because he refuses to believe there are WMD’s on Camazotz).

    At least, that’s what I heard.

    Hi Connie! Hey, I remember that book! Maybe it’s time to check it out again and read it to my kiddies. Ever read Phantom Tollboth? Another goodie.

    I was just looking at your sample last week with Linda and we were saying what a nice job you did and how lovely the yarn was. You’re right though, it has a delicate feel to it.

    Hope you’re doing well!

    Global Warming…;-)

    Hey Connie, thanks for your review (and Clara’s is not bad, either) on the soft soft yarn! I have not tried it yet, none of my LYSs carry PDE yarns.
