This book was so sweet.

This book is about two Jewish girls falling for each other, one of them identifies as a lesbian, and the other as bisexual and .... You have no idea how hard it is to find a bi Jewish girl in a book .... It's the first time for me, and it makes my bi Jewish heart so damn happy.

It's so satisfying to read a book about Jewish people, so so so satisfying. Like at some point Danielle says she can't live w

I heart this adorable f/f romance so much. It's sweet like my favorite rugelach, and the pace felt exactly right to me. I love how deeply Jewish it is, and all the details about art and yarn, and the kitty. The zaftig MC Danielle is exactly who I would fall for, too. And I really liked the way the characters are connected to community, liked the way they joke with each other, share a fandom. it just feels so...cozy. Exactly the comfort read I needed today. The first kiss moment was super swoony ...more
This novella is not a sparks fly romance and I would say falls into the cute category.

In general, I felt some distance from the story and it ended up being an okay read for me.

The characters are likable enough but the plot meanders some, drawing our attention to things that probably aren't necessary (along the lines of yarn dying, clean up, and meeting with some friends). I was left waiting for the meat of the story to kick in (i.e. more interactions between Danielle and Clara)...which it does,

Super cute, warm novella about two Jewish women, Clara Ziegler and Danielle Solomon, that begins when Clara is inspired to small-batch dye yarn for a knitting club based on Danielle's paintings. It turns out that both are fans of a show called Captain Werewolf, so a large part of their initial flirting is exchanging links to good fanfic and Danielle creating fan art for Clara.

It's nerdy and totally sweet. There isn't a lot of angst here, just two gals with similar passions getting to know each
This was so freaking cute. Would've happily spent lots more time with Clara and Danielle! Fun to read different kinds of Jewish rep in one book, too.

"If I'm stuck on my planet," Danielle pointed out, "I'm gonna plant flowers there."

So good.

So adorable. So honest and at times raw. So healing.

This is a short-but-Very-sweet novelette about precious, creative, clever girls growing closer and bonding over art, yarn nerdery, and healing past traumas. So, like, everything I love in a book, even if I don't know the first thing about yarn or yarn accessories - but the writer clearly does/has done the research. And the romance is so good that eve

This was such an adorable novella! A perfectly safe, comforting feel-good f/f piece featuring two Jewish women. There is so much love for knitting, fandom, colors, cats with attitudes, and the occasional pun. It's nerdy, it's sweet, it's funny. I think I grinned almost the whole time watching Clara and Danielle bond with each other.

Plus - have you seen the title? Have you seen the cover? Perfect!
A nice, sweet romance. No angst, no conflicts - just strangers, to friends bonding over a favorite TV show and fanfic and their shared ethnicity (Jewish) and eventually more than just friends.

I really enjoyed imagining the colors of the paintings and the yarn created by the two protagonists. Clara hand dyes yarn in unique color combinations as a side business. She is inspired by paintings by Danielle and contacts her for permission to use her color combinations and reference her art.

With heart, sweetness, charm, and lovability, "Knit One, Girl Two" is a delightful comfort read featuring two captivating creatives.

Small-batch independent yarn dyer Clara Ziegler is on the hunt for a new muse. Running an annual sock club, where knitters subscribe to her club and get a surprise yarn color each month, Clara needs new inspiration for this year’s dye color combinations. When Clara sees Danielle Solomon’s colorful paintings of Florida wildlife at a local art gallery, she is enchant

A super cute and fun novella with very likeable main characters.

I love how the girls are obsessing over their favorite tv show, reading fanfictions and talking about their favorite ship. The author also brings up musicals a lot, mentions etsy at some point and even lets the characters talk about the Bury Your Gays trope. Nerd heaven!

The only reason I'm not giving it more stars is that it was extremely short and the ending came too abruptly. Therefore everything feels a little unresolved. I wou

KNIT ONE GIRL TWO is an absolutely adorable story -- sweet, witty, real, and dorky all at once. I love the way it weaves in craft and fandom and art and life's harder turns into a beautiful and supportive relationship. There’s something about how these characters are allowed to just BE--be queer, be jewish, be sad or excited or smitten, be nerds who make puns--and all of it is totally integral to their lives and story.

also reaally loved Clara's relationship with her sister. always here for fun f

Knit One, Girl Two is such a sweet novella and it comes at a fantastic price. It’s well worth picking up, especially at the end of a bad day or week, because I guarantee you can’t read it without smiling.

Adorable f/f romance novella featuring two Jewish artists in south Florida. I wish this were a full length novel because I didn’t want to stop reading!

Reread review (4 stars): I decided to reread this because I was too anxious for any of my current reads and this was the fluffiest thing on my kindle app, and it was the perfect escape. I got to relive all the funny quips and bits of fandom culture I'd forgotten about! I'm rating it higher this time around just for being exactly what I needed.

Original review (3.5 stars): This is a very cute book! I especially loved Clara's community at her lgbt+ center, and I wish we got to see more of her frien

I knit, and I am a sock yarn club addict. At least, I used to be until I counted the skeins of sock yarn I owned and calculated how long it would take me to knit them all into socks. Yikes!

So of course I loved this lbgtqia novella, about an indie yarn dyer who starts a sock yarn club and falls for the artist who inspired her colorways. There are wonderful yarn details and geeky details, and the whole story was cozy and lots of fun.

I found this book too boring, tried skipping parts, that didn’t help. In the end I skipped to nearly the end, that sometimes helps me to get interested again. Not in this case, so I quit%

Very sweet, and I loved learning more about knitting subscription boxes and Jewish traditions, alongside a very sweet body positive romance! Really short but very well written.

I'm so grateful that I got the chance to read an early copy!!

This is an adorable novelette about two Jewish girls bonding over fanfiction and fanart *swoons*. It's full of everything I love to read in F/F stories. I'm sure people are going to adore this one. Shira is a wonderful and clever writer and everything she writes includes female characters that are so relatable and funny. I could read about Clara and Danielle for a long time and I miss them already.
3.5 Stars!

Oh, this is an adorable romance! It is as cute as its cover.

The yarn dying parts are super intersting and both heroines are witty and fun.

The heat level is kisses. I do wish the romance went on into a relationship in all its glory (not just the sexy stuff) and I hope that others of the knitting circle might get a story.

Knit One, Girl Two is a short, low-stakes f/f romance. Clara's into dyeing yarn, but she's looking for inspiration for a new set of colours. She finds that inspiration in paintings by Danielle, a fellow Jewish woman, and Danielle is just as excited as she is by the chance to collaborate. They bond through the shared endeavour, which goes big time thanks to Danielle's famous uncle, and a shared fandom. The only conflict in the novella is something that's going on for Danielle, leaving her unable ...more

This is so cute. It's a short story about two Jewish girls falling in love, one who identifies as bi, the other as a lesbian. Danielle is also described as chubby but is not defined by it. Every character was diverse and real and I loved it.
The author is also Jewish and bisexual, so the rep there is ownvoices. I absolutely loved the bi rep, and if you're curious about the Jewish rep, definitely read this (ownvoices) review by Romie.

Honestly, so many things made me smile! One girl is an artist,

If you need a genuine, fluffy, cozy, short story go get this one straight away. It turned my heart into a content ball of mush.

“'A lot of people haven't realized how big knitting is. They still associate it with grandmothers and pregnancy.''In other words, with desexualized women,' Danielle pointed out. 'And therefore, it becomes devalued.'”

This story is rich in diversity in just a few pages. A bisexual indie yarn dyer meets with a lesbian painter. Both are Jewish, and they fall into
