Tis the Season

I finished reading my advance copy of Knit the Season by Kate Jacobs last night. This is the third book in the Friday Night Knitting Club series. It follows the first two nicely, keeping with the feel and tradition. Some of the club members get less face time in this novel, which focuses mostly on now 20 year old Dakota.

The novel picks up at Thanksgiving and runs through the New Year's holiday. It does a lovely job of bringing the festive season to life. Even though it's only early November, it got me into the holiday frame of mind. This was a delicious book in more ways than one. Not only was it a fun and familiar read, but Bess' butter tarts sound divine, and I'm almost tempted to try creating my own holiday garland (although I'd have to crochet it, not being a knitter like Georgia).

This book delivers just what it offers: good friends, knitting, and happy holidays!
