It's a Purl Thing (Chicks with Sticks #1)
Reader reviewed by Grace
At her aunt's funeral, Scottie receives a pair of sticks and yarn after watching a relative knitting. She reluctantly starts knitting one night when she can't stop thinking about her aunt, and soon becomes a part of the Knit Wit group. Knit Wit is a place she feels happy and loved, but when her friends start changing, she holds on to the faith that knitting will bring them back together.
Chicks with Sticks is a story about friendship and knitting. It shows the importance of having close friends and always sticking by them no matter what. Scottie and her friends go through many difficult times, but at the end they will always be there for each other.
