Knit*Lit meets this Thursday!

Just a quick reminder that we'll be meeting this Thursday to talk about Died in the Wool! Hope you all can make it to talk about this knitting mystery. There's a rumor of cupcakes. . . . .

It's a good time to reserve your copy of next month's book now, too. Next month will be Persuasion by Jane Austen. Perhaps we should have some tea and crumpets for that discussion! :)

Are you driven to knit? Come join us April 3!

Here's a synopsis of our next read, Died in the Wool by Mary Kruger.

"Ariadne Evans is the proud owner of her very own knitting shop. And she's just got herself in a stitch. When Ariadne enters her knitting store one day to find longtime customer Edith Perry strangled to death with homespun yarn, she fears her life is about to come undone -- again, since she's still getting over a divorce. Her worries increase when she's questioned by detective Joshua Pierce, who may or may not have designs on her. While Josh pieces together the details of the crime, clues about Ariadne's ties to Miss Perry come to light...and a bizarre pattern unfolds. Now it's up to Ariadne to do some sleuthing of her own. Can she untangle the investigation without getting snarled up into too much trouble? That depends on whether the killer is as crafty as she is...."

Our next meeting is this week!

March's discussion of Knitting Under the Influence by Claire LaZebnick is this Thursday (March 6) at 7pm at the West Regional Library. Our club is getting more popular, because it was hard to get the 8 copies of the book into the right hands at the right time! Even if you didn't get a chance to read the book, join us anyway if you're not afraid of spoilers.

Popmatters reviewed the book last year, and they made some interesting comparisons between chick-lit books to Jane Austen. Here's the link if you're interested in checking it out. It will be interesting to keep it in mind for our Austen reading later in the year!!!
