Waiting On Wednesday: Boys Don't Knit


Boys Don't Knit
Author: T.S. Easton
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
Publication Date: March 24, 2015

Synopsis:
Knitting is a man’s game.
After an incident regarding a crossing guard and a bottle of Martini & Rossi (and his bonehead friends), 17-year-old worrier Ben Fletcher must develop his sense of social alignment, take up a hobby, and do some community service to avoid any further probation.
He takes a knitting class (it was that or his father’s mechanic class) under the impression that it's taught by the hot teacher all the boys like. Turns out, it’s not. Perfect.
Regardless, he sticks with it and comes to find that he’s a natural knitter, maybe even great. It even helps ease his anxiety and worrying. The only challenge now is to keep it hidden from his friends, his crush, and his soccer-obsessed father. What a tangled web Ben has weaved . . . or knitted.
My Thoughts: I like that this book takes traditional gender roles and plays with them. I'm excited to read about Ben and his knitting skills, maybe it'll even inspire me to take up knitting!

  1. Sounds cute! Ben knitting and hiding it. LOL Probably the girl he likes wouldn't mind and would be like knit me a sweater! Or at least that is what I'd say! The cover is super cute too!

    My WOW
