Knit Lit

I thought it might be fun to share with you my current bit of light reading: Friday Night Knitting Club. It was a gift last Christmas from Matt (he's so thoughtful that way...), and he continually bugs me that I haven't actually read it yet. So, I came across it and started into it, and not only is a great read, it's also very inspiring! I'm not that far into it, but the characters instantly grabbed me. I look forward to bedtime now to read a few extra pages. Secretly I have this dream to open my own store of crafted goods; this story may just be the inspiration I need. Either that, or it will inspire me to write a book...

I can't take the credit for the catchy "Knit Lit" name; most knitting magazines have a section of knitting related books, mainly reference type books, but this one happened to be fiction. There is a second book already out (Knit Two), and the first one has been made into a motion picture, which I might see after reading the book (I will probably have to find a girlfriend to watch that one with me...).

Matt and I have both decided that we watch way too much television at night, so it's going to be one of our New Year's Resolutions to watch less TV and read more (my goal is read two books a month and visit our local library more). It will be a challenge, because we have become fans of some good TV shows, so filtering out which ones stay and and which ones go could prove to be a challenge. The comforting thing is that most shows appear on DVD in the summer, so we could always catch up on them then.  We'll see how that goes...


  1. Hey Beth!
    I'm currently reading this book too! :) There are a few follow up books to it as well! I'm looking forward to sinking my teeth into them!
    Hope all is well!

  2. I have this book on my shelf at home! Hahah, so weird. I bought it ages ago (for obvious reasons), but haven't started it yet. Glad you're liking it -- I'll have to bump it up on my to-read list!! (After Julie & Julia :))

  3. Hey Beth,
    Count me in for the movie. I've already read the first two books.


I always welcome comments! Please feel free to share...
