Knitting Novels set in MANHATTAN and ENGLAND

Hmmmm.... interesting! Both these book covers are similar, a pair of gorgeous pins (and of course fabulous shoes!) and some wool: hello publishers, is there a spot of social stereotyping going on?????

Anyway, we are pleased to introduce you to two lovely books that bring knitting, gentleness and Manhattan and England (plus a quick side trip to Venice) under one umbrella.......

Put your feet up, get the needles out and enjoy The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs which has the plus of recipes and patterns, all set in wonderful Manhattan. Walker and Daughter yarn shop is the venue for the Friday Night Knitting Club. This is the gentle story of single Mum Georgia and her daughter Dakota. Dad left early in Dakota's life and returns to re-build his relationship. And if you like this book then pick up Knit 2, the sequel!

And for more knitting and yarns in fiction we chose this book Divas don't knit by Gil McNeil. Jo is looking for a new life after the death of her philandering husband, so she decides to up sticks and relocate to the English coast and take over her Grandmother's yarn shop. She wants it to become the vibrant hub of the community, she teaches a local celebrity to knit and survives a trip to Venice with her Mother. Reader beware, this book is the same as  the Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club.

Let us know your favourite knitting themed books in the Comments Box below! Always happy to hear from you.
