Book: friday night knitting club
I thought this would be another idiotic piece of fiction, but, it's pretty good.
You might want to pick up a free copy from your library, and read it, before the movie comes out in June.

I was looking at in Target tonight and wondered if it was a good one. I'll see if the library has it. Have you read Debbie Macomber's similar books? How does it compare?

I just started reading this tonight! My mom picked it up the other day cause she thought of me when she saw it. I'm working on a simple washcloth, so I've even finally been able to read & knit at the same time. ahhh happiness It's a pretty good book, too.

Funny I found this thread tonight...I just finished reading The Friday Night Knitting Club and I enjoyed it very much - I felt like I knew the characters well and was sad to have the story end. I had no idea it will become a movie...hope they do it right!

I also enjoyed Debbie Macomber's books - the characters are very likeable and the stories are engaging.

I think I enjoyed this book best of all - happy reading AND knitting!

I've read the book, and thoroughly enjoyed it. It didn't take me long to finish it either. You will not be disappointed.

Happy reading and knitting

I absolutely LOVED this book and Debbie MAcomber's The Shop on Blossom Street (Just started A Good Yarn)! My knitting group read this when it first came out and I had to buy it, I enjoyed it so much. Like many, I was disappointed in what happens as the end - but I loved the book.

If you enjoyed these books, another to read is "Unravelled" by Robyn Harding. It is about the lives of people in a knitting group. I found it at my library.

I received this book as a gift. I haven't read it yet. It sounds like I should get started on it. I still haven't mastered knitting and reading at the same time

I've been told about Macomber's books, but, not read one yet, I do have them on hold at the library.


I tried reading The Knitting Circle, but, lost interest.

As far as I can tell, and I"ve only read a few chapters so far, it's pretty good. Not great, or one of the top ten masterpieces of all time, but,I like to read it when I'm done for the day, and relaxing in bed.

Tell me how you like it, what you think of the plot, and the characters.
