I have a special new Lucy Locket Land Club for 2023 - Locket's Book & Craft Club where we can share our joint passions for reading and making.
Every two months or so there will be a new book recommendation and the opportunity to pre-order the special craft box that I have put together to go with the book and come to a special Knit Group/Book Club meeting either in person at Lucy Locket Land or virtually via Zoom.
Please note, you will need to have signed up for the Craft Box to come to the Book Group meetings
The Craft Boxes will vary and you will be given an indication of what type of project it will contain. You can also choose to sign up for each one or just whichever takes your fancy - there's no tie-in.
My 6th (and final for 2023) book recommendation is one that I have read and re-read over and over since its publication in 2000 and loved just as much each time. It's Winter Solstice by Rosamund Pilcher and is a warm and comforting book that is full of love and friendship and just really nice people! It is mostly set in Scotland in the weeks leading up to Christmas and it's a book to curl up with and enjoy. It's not pure schmalz as there are sad things too, and I hope you will love it as much as I do. You can read it in any format you prefer - paperback, kindle, audio, library lend - whatever suits you and your lifestyle best.
This will be a knitting project using a new pattern that I have designed specially and will be knitted in the round using the super soft and squishy DK Merino (that was in my Where the Crawdads Sing box) so you can expect the kit to make something just as cosy and comforting as the book!
The exact contents of the craft box are secret but will include
Hand dyed Ultra Merino DK wool
A printed pattern booklet
A secret extra "something" that is connected to the story/project - but I'm not telling you what!
in a tissue-lined box
plus entry to the in-person or virtual Book Group Meeting in October (dates to be discussed and confirmed to suit as many of you as possible)
The book itself is not included so you can choose your preferred format
Box numbers are limited and will hopefully be sent out during week commencing 6th November or can be collected at the Book #5 Meet Up on 4th November
