I Even Read About Knitting

Last week Cole came home from his favorite thrift store with this 30 cent purchase in hand for me: The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs, saying "I hope you haven't read it yet!" He takes good care of me, no?

The first and ubiquitous knit-knovel: woman opens yarn store to support herself & her new baby, strong women come into their lives through the yarn store, life turns around for woman, happy ending for all. Or maybe not.

I have to agree with my friend BlondeChicken: I mostly read it because, as a knitter, I felt like I “should,” but I actually enjoyed it more than I expected. It could have used a good editing, but there were some “moments of real emotion” in it, as Tara said.

A quick & easy read, it would be the perfect vacay reading. Curious to see how the movies compares.

    Nice. Gonna check it for my upcomin' spring break. Girls gone wild! Or not...

  2. As a yarn shop owner, people ask me almost daily if I've read this book and all those blossom street things. At this point it's kind of a thing with me that I refuse to read them. haha
    I always ask, "Are there vampires or werewolves in it? No? Probably not gonna go there then" :) I probably will go to the movie if it ever comes out, and it'll probably make me cry.

  3. I read and enjoyed this book too. A nice easy read and I'm all about the easy! That was very sweet of Cole to pick it up for you.


Tell me what you're thinking, I dare you!
