I stumbled upon this book purely by accident, and was very pleasantly surprised. Much of the knitting fiction I've read has felt a bit forced, as if the authors were struggling to specifically write fiction about knitting. Gil McNeil manages to make knitting an integral and interesting part of Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club. I can picture the lovely yarn colors & garments she describes. She manages to make the mess & emotions of everyday life funny and interesting, while portraying knitting as an excellent way to deal with it all. Just one question - how did Jo manage to be such a prolific knitter with two young sons and McKnits? I'm a bit jealous of how much knitting she is able to accomplish!
