Amish Knitting Circle

Amish Knitting Circle- Beginnings

This is the first of a series by Karen Anna Vogel. It was described as written in the style of The Pickwick Papers in a series. I borrowed this one from my mother's Nook and really enjoyed it. It is very short and leaves you wishing the complete book was there before your eyes to read if you are a fan of Amish fiction.

Granny Weaver is spinning the wool from her six sheep one afternoon when she decides to set up a knitting circle. Inviting the women in her community that she is praying for, in this first volume, you meet the various Amish women.

Happy reading!

It sounds like a sweet story. I know what you mean by short stories sometimes being TOO short. If they're really good they leave you wanting more.

I was not happy that book was so short. I wonder if the rest of them are also like that.
