The Friday Night Knitting Club

One of my holiday reads whilst in St Ives was "The Friday Night Knitting Club" - much to the amusement of my young man! He kept asking if anyone had been shot yet! Or stabbed with a knitting needle.
I loved it, it was a great holiday read.  It was set in New York and centred around a single mother who owned a wool shop and the unusual friendships formed at the knitting club.  It was like "Sex and the City" but with knitting instead of sex.  I hear that they making it into a film, and I think it will translate well onto the big screen.  The book ends with a bit of a twist which I really didn't see coming.  It's proper Chick Lit, but OK for when you want a lighter read.

Hello!
I love chick-lit and this book sounds interesting. Your description of the plot reminds me of the Jane Austen Book Club. Have you read it?

Enjoy the new week! ;)

Sounds fun. I'll look out for that one. I do most of my reading in my lunchbreaks at work, so I don't want anything too highbrow.

Like it says on the cover "worth taking a duvet day for". Sometimes we all need to read something a little light hearted. Thanks for the recommendation, Diane. x
