I don’t knit.
Or crotchet. (I used to be able to–one looooooooong chain.)
I don’t scrap book, or really anything remotely crafty.
If I have time to sit and do “nothing”…I’m going to read. Every once in awhile I’ll start a project, but after two seconds, I get distracted by another book, and it all goes to pot.
So when I first started reading Kate Jacobs’ book, I thought this all sounded really really dull. Why would anyone go and sit in a room together and knit?
Then I realized…
That’s pretty much the whooooole premise of a book club. I do the exact same thing! It’s just a bunch of us geeks getting together and geeking out over whatever we geek out about. Some people just like yarn instead of books (so weird).
Overall, this is a really sweet book. The characters are sweet, the plot is sweet. There’s a lot of sugar, so make sure to brush your teeth. I really enjoyed it though, and maaaaaaybe even teared up a little at the end. I could have used some of that yarn to dry off.
But really? A hand-knitted gala gown? I find that a little hard to fathom. I just kept picturing really terrible Christmas sweaters.
Ok, I’m off to my geek-out zone–Lucky Dog Books. I have that stack of books to trade in and I need to get out of this house for awhile!
