Anyone read 'The Friday Night Knitting Club'?
i finished this book a little while ago and it really got me wanting to get my knitting needles out again after gathering dust in the loft for many years. It's a lovley book and some of the desciptions of the wool are just beautiful. It just brought it home to me what a joy knitting is - i'm so glad I read the book. Now after seeing me knit my 4 year old daughter wants me to teach her!!

Anyone else read it and what did you think?? Must admit I did cry at the sad bits but overall it was great.

I read it and enjoyed it! I've been knitting nearly every day for almost 2 yrs though.

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

Read it. Wasn't too bad. I prefered "The Knitting Circle."

I was knitting before I read the books, but I can see how it may give you the bug to start up again.

So, get out those needles, grab some yarn and join us!
