June July August

Maplewood library needs the books we will be reading at our June, July and August Knit-Lit meeting. So when a few of us got together at Double Ewe this weekend we came up with ones we thought would be good.

We try to pick books that have lots of copies in the library. Once in awhile we do pick harder to find books. Since it is sometimes hard to get new or less popular books checked out and read in time so I suggest that you put in your request now so that you get it read by the meeting.

Another great place to find books is the 1/2 Price bookstore. Often I buy the book group book there because it takes me more than the three weeks to get through a thick one. If I'm not enjoying a book it takes me twice as long to read it.

This winter we did a slipper knit-a-long. Some of us brought ours to the March meeting. Several others had brought them to other meetings.

The pattern we talked about: Aunt Maggie's Slippers can be found at

The group decided to adopt the Minnesota Knitters Guild service project as ours too. We will be making chemo hats. The are many patterns out on the internet. They need to be made from a specific chemo hat as the size differs. Also the fabric needs to be soft with little or no wool so it doesn't irritate the skin.

Most of us liked the February book The Girls From Ames. Although there were some that were less than thrilled.

The March book is House Rules by Jodi Picoult. Deb choose this book.
