Richard Rutt is the former Bishop of Leicester and has published many titles including Korea: A Historical and Cultural Dictionary and The Bamboo Grove: An Introduction to Sijo.From AudioFile:
It's difficult to imagine a more thorough examination of the history of knitting than this one. Scholar Richard Rutt has put together a detailed description of the craft itself, including definitive opinions about the origins of knitting and in-depth explanations of particular garments worn throughout history. Narrator Melissa Hughes's light, musical voice lends a bright note to what is most certainly an informed, if occasionally exhaustive, narrative. Her ability to pronounce the titles of obscure texts and vocabulary in a variety of languages without interrupting the narrative flow is laudable. Casual knitters may find this account tedious, but textile specialists and serious knitters will find the details intriguing, perhaps listening while practicing their craft.
