May Book Club

Knit Lit! Join us for a monthly community book club where we'll discuss a book and knit. Only requirement is that you read the book. The Knit Lit Book Club is hosted by our knitting friend, Barbara Elfman. The May book is The Curse of the Boyfriend Sweater.

Written by Alanna Okun, a graduate of Needham High School!, this collection of essays explores craft and her personal journey. From completed to forgotten projects, we think this book will provide us with lots to discuss! And you must check out Alanna's handknit sweater version of her bookcover. The book is currently available at our local bookstores: Porter Square Books and Harvard Book Store.

Limited to 10 students (17 yrs of age or older); 50% enrollment required for class to meet. This event is free but we do require you register so we know how many snacks to prepare

  • Level:  Intermediate (you are working on your own project and we won't let you fail but this event is mostly for talking about the book and a little bit about you knitting)
  • We provide: Barbara's making handmade baked goods, lively discussion, and great company
  • You bring: a copy of the book or your notes or whatever and your knitting/crochet/embroidery project. Maybe a beverage...
  • 2 hours
