Knitting Fiction books???????
I need some recommendations for fiction books that include knitting. So far, I've read:

the Knitting Mysteries by Maggie Sefton
the A Good Yarn series by Debbie Macomber

Are there any others out there??
Thanks,
knitcindy

I read a book called Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs. It's apparently a trilogy now? But I only read the first one. I thought it was pretty good; I'd give it a solid B.

The other books are called "Knit Two" and "Knit the Season." My partner has read two of them and really enjoyed them.

it's a trilogy now. I didn't like the second at all and have no desire to read the third.



there's also "the knitting circle" and i think that's by ann hood.

A friend of mine gave me "Knitting Under the Influence" by Claire LaZebnik. I haven't read it though so I can't tell you much about it. Here's the Amazon link though: http://www.amazon.com/Knitting-Under...3604072&sr=8-1

I love Gil McNeil's books "Divas Dont Knit" (I think this may have a differrent title in the US) and "Needles and Purls". They inspired me to take up knitting

"Divas Don't Knit" is titled "Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club" in the US.
