About four months ago, I read The Friday Night Knitting Club– and I often still think about that story with the cute characters and that charming little Manhattan yarn shop. No, I do not know how to knit- but ever since I read this book I have been dying to learn how! Perhaps I will have the spare time in the future to learn but for know why not just throw a knitting- themed party? This would be a cute party theme for a birthday of someone you loves to knit, for Mother’s Day, or just to surprise Grammy.
Check out this adorable knitting basket cake created by the masters at Cake Journal!

And for a little blog love, I came across this knitting blog Wool and the Gang and can’t get enough of it- even though I am a wanna-be-someday-knitter… I still think it rocks!
Oh and during my knitting party inspiration search, I discovered that there is now a sequel to the book that started my infatuation with knitting- so I will be heading out to pick up my copy of Knit Two and get my “fix.”
