Breeders guitarist and recovering drug addict Kelley Deal took up the not-very-rock-and-roll hobby of knitting as part of her effort to stay sober. After honing her skills during a European tour in the 1990s, Deal began selling her knitted handbags. In 2008, she published the book “Bags That Rock: Knitting on the Road with Kelley Deal.” “In it I walk you through all the basics of felting, blocking, joining seams, simple crochet and embroidery embellishments with 20 projects,” she writes on her website. —Jeff Royer
