"Books don't just go with you, they take you where you've never been." - Anonymous 

The Kniterary Society is not just for knitters. This is a chance for anyone to join in and read a book that maybe you never would have picked up otherwise. I'm a person who likes accountability - it's easy to tell yourself you're going to try something or do something...but you never do it. Having a group of people try something with you gives you that extra little push to achieve your goal. 

This 'club' (for lack of a better word) could mean something different to everyone. For me - a busy work from home mom to two young kids - it's a way to slow down and lose myself in another time or another world.

This is a super casual thing but I have thought of a few guidelines or things to help it run a little smooth:

Durations of the read (4-6 weeks) Based on the number of pages/chapters we will pick a weekly goal (example from Chapter 1-10) and I'll have a weekly check in on my Instagram page. Here we can just casually chat about what we think so for, where we predict the story taking us, our favourite characters (or least favourite characters.)

At the end of the book, I'll host a Instagram Live where we can chat more about the books! I'll also open a special yarn club up with a set (1 skein + 1 mini skein) in an exclusive colourway based on the book jacket. 

The last week of the current book I will post a new poll for two new books - if you ever have recommendations or suggestions I am all ears! Please send me titles, authors, series...whatever!

Whatever your preferred method of reading is (paperback, hardcover, ebook, audiobook) please join us! Everyone is welcome! If you don't want to purchase a new book every month, you don't have to! Check with friend and see if you can borrow their copy, check out your local library, thrift store or buy second hand online - whatever you are most comfortable with - amazon is my top choice for second hand (when I was in my early 20's I definitely had weekly deliveries from Amazon of second hand books, so I'm guilty there!)

ANYWAYS! I am no writer and I really just want to express how casual this! I want it to be fun and a way to connect with more of you, build new relationships and get lost between the pages! I hope you can join :)

  • I just found your gorgeous yarn, and while scrolling through, I found your book club. My two favorite things, yarn and books! I listen to a lot of audiobooks these days since time in the car is some of my only “free” time. I would love to read along with your group, and coordinated yarns to a book is a no-brainer excuse for me to increase my stash! :-)

  • I would like to join your book club. As much as I love crocheting, I was missing reading books so recently started putting a book with my yarn projects as a visual reminder to take reading breaks. Would love discussing books with others.

  • I just wanted to say thank you for this book club. I loved Where the Crawdads Sing, I am finally beginning to enjoy The Library Book, it was definitely not what I expected it to be, but it really is great.

    I can’t wait to read with you all summer and knit with the beautiful yarns you dye to go with!!!
