Boys Don't Knit by T.S. Easton

Publish Date: March 24, 2015
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends

This came out last year in the UK and will soon be released in the US. It sounds great. Original.

Knitting is a man’s game.

After an incident regarding a crossing guard and a bottle of Martini & Rossi (and his bonehead friends), 17-year-old worrier Ben Fletcher must develop his sense of social alignment, take up a hobby, and do some community service to avoid any further probation.

He takes a knitting class (it was that or his father’s mechanic class) under the impression that it's taught by the hot teacher all the boys like. Turns out, it’s not. Perfect.

Regardless, he sticks with it and comes to find that he’s a natural knitter, maybe even great. It even helps ease his anxiety and worrying. The only challenge now is to keep it hidden from his friends, his crush, and his soccer-obsessed father. What a tangled web Ben has weaved . . . or knitted.

  9. I definitely agree that it's original! I'm honestly wondering how an entire book could be written about a guy taking a knitting class, so I'm interested to read your review and see if it's worth reading! Thanks for sharing :)

  13. As someone who loves to knit this book looks really interesting. In my opinion here are not enough books with knitting as the main idea.
