For Christmas this year, my dear aunt sent me a book called The Friday Night Knitting Club by Kate Jacobs. It is a novel about a group of women (much like us!) who get together on Friday night (again, like us) to share their knitting as well as their lives and life experiences (ahem, like us). I am only about a third of the way through the book, but thus far I would recommend it, if for no other reason than to kill a few hours (in the tub? soaking away??).
When we first started meeting, and I subsequently started knitting, I remember how great it was to feel a part of something special. I still feel that way each time we get together and come away feeling happier than when I came (and I know I am not alone in this feeling. :)). This book is the perfect portrait of the camaraderie a group of women with a common knowledge can share.
