A Knitting SATC: Staten Island’s ‘Loose’ Women

I’ve heard of (and read) knitting books, but I’ve never heard of a knitting play. From Staten Island comes “Loose Knit,” a play written in 1992 about a knitting circle that also gives each other support in addition to knitting tips.

Filled with salty language and set in Manhattan, the play is “Sex and the City” with four single girlfriends (and one married one) but set in a knitting circle. From the review, “Naturally, there are issues, frictions, rough patches. Some people are born to knit. Others are needle-challenged. Some are naturally lucky and good at relationships. Others kiss a lot of frogs but never get a prince. And some sleep with their sister’s husband.”

Ouch.
