The Curse of The Boyfriend Sweater: Essays on Crafting by Alanna Okun

Every knitter knows that as soon as you start making your boyfriend a sweater, he will be out the door before you’re done. But as Alanna Okun has learned, these life lessons are not limited to the curse of the boyfriend sweater.

We will spend time talking with Alanna about her book and have some hang/ knitting time together!
