I don't know about anyone else but i've started to really enjoy reading a good chick lit book.  Chick lit always ends up being easy, quick and entertaining read.  I recently found my first Knitting Chick Lit book...and I loved it.  I was wondering if anyone has any other knitting themed chick lit or really any type of knitting themed book they would like to share.  OOOO maybe a good knitting horror/mystery...could be interesting
loved it!
Its about 3 20something girls that get together every week to knit, chat and bond (how could you not love it so far).  Of course staying with the whole chick lit theme...it follows their love and business life...eventually of course ending happily ever after for everyone...yeah!!!!

Not really a chick lit, more crime/mystery, but some time ago i finished "knit one, kill two" that i received in personal swap (thans, FrogPuddle:)). it's not exactly work of art, but it is fun:) it's about a woman that solves murder(s) with help of women from her lys:)

also, there is a lot of knitting going on in "The Cat Who Saw Stars" from "The Cat Who..." series by Lilian Jackson Braun. There is even some spinning, and the book is also crime/mystery:) i was listening to audiobook while knitting, it is great, much better then tv for me because a) i don't have tv b) i can still watch my knitting while listening to:)

Candy doesn't have to have a point. That's why it's candy.
Will knit for PJ pants:) PM me:)
Anyone interested in swapping Steve Jackson's "Munchkin" custom cards?

There are two more books in the series after the Knit One, Kill Two book.  Mary Kruger wrote a book called Dyed in the Wool and Debbie Macomber (sp?) has two about women and their LYS--The Shop on Blossom Street and A Good Yarn.  A book called Friday Night Knits or Knitting should be coming out soon.

My mom gave me Knitting Under the Influence as a joke Xmas present.  I did read it though; it was my first and only foray into chick-lit ... normally my taste is a little more academic and nerdy.   Cheesy

Chicks with Sticks is really good, even though it's young adult.  I didn't like the second one in the series as much, but I love the first.  Plus, each come with a few free knitting patterns in the back.  Oddly, I like the patterns in the second book better (I suppose it makes up for me buying it).

Him: I think we've been on the same page for a while now.
Me: What if we're on the same page, but in different books?

Oh, I didn't realize Chicks with Sticks was the first of a series.

The Friday Night Knitting Club, by Kate Jacobs, is excellent.

The first Chicks with Sticks book is better, IMHO.  It was more about discovering knitting and good friends, whereas the second was almost entirely about boys (which is an important topic, don't get me wrong).  Smiley

There's also The Knitting Circle, by Ann Budd, which I just finished.  I thought it was better than Friday Night Knitting Club, which seemed like it was written with a script in mind. 

There's also Knitting, by Anne Bartlett, which is good too.  Not really "chick lit" because the main characters are older women, but I thought it was better than Knitting Under the Influence. 

I've read WAY too many knitting books.

I'm reading 'the Friday Night Knitting Club' right now and I'm really enjoying it...can hardly put it down long enough to do my own knitting!  Someone told me they're making it into a movie and that Julia Roberts is playing Georgia (main character).  I hope that's true. :-)

Thanks for starting this thread...I haven't read any other kitting themed novels yet but I just got some good suggestions.

I was at Barnes and Noble last night, and my husband pointed out a series of 3 knitting mysteries by Maggie Sefton...

Knit One, Kill Two
Needled to Death
A Deadly Yarn

I haven't read any of them yet, but they look good!  Definitely on my wish list.

I really liked Knit One Kill Two! I have a copy of Knitting Under the Influence that a friend bought me for Christmas. I'm trying to save it for my plane ride to Las Vegas next month (I *have* to read chick lit on the plane, and this book seems perfect) but I'm not sure I can hold off Smiley
