Boys Don't Knit
by T. S. Easton

Ben Fletcher must get to grips with his more 'feminine' side following an unfortunate incident with a lollipop lady and a stolen bottle of Martini Rosso from Waitrose. All a big misunderstanding of course. To avoid the Young Offenders unit, Ben is ordered to give something back to the community and develop his sense of social alignment. Take up a hobby and keep on the straight and narrow. The hot teacher he likes runs a knitting group so Ben, reluctantly at first, gets 'stuck in'. Not easy when your dad is a sports fan and thinks Jeremy Clarkson is God. To his surprise, Ben finds that he likes knitting and that he has a mean competitive streak. If he can just keep it all a secret from his mates...and notice that the girl of his dreams, girl-next-door Megan Hooper has a bit of a thing for him...Laugh-out-loud, often ridiculous, sometimes quite touching, and revelatory about the knitting world, Boys Don't Knit is a must for boys and girls...
I've been looking for something a little different for my wishlist recently, and this is one that keeps popping up in my periphery every now and again. And yesterday, it happened again. I was in Stratford with my boyfriend for our anniversary, nipped into the Waterstones there, and saw this on the shelf. So I thought, okay ... I think this book does finally want to be added to the wishlist.
The only reason I didn't buy it when I saw it there and then is because I'm going to London for YALC this weekend and will be on a three-day-long-book-spree!
But it is definitely one to keep in mind for the future!

What's on your wishlist this week? Let us know in the comments below, or link to your own Wishlist Wednesday post in the Linky :)
