I recently stumbled upon these books in the local library and really enjoyed them. They're light reading - British 'chick lit' if you will - but full of knitting, and a yarn shop, which is fun. The original books as published in the UK areDivas Don't Knit, and Needles and Pearls. The first book has also been republished in the US as The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club - I was disappointed when I thought I'd found a third one, but it was the first one in a new jacket! A warning, one of the characters is rather foul-mouthed, prompting me to give the books a 'PG' rating for the faint of heart!
