I've only read The Thirteenth Tale and half of Friday Night Knitting Club.

For FNKC I'd do a ball of Sugar and Cream yarn and a set of needles size 6 or 7 and then I'd include this super easy pattern

Maybe a Copy of Jane Eyre -- as that is the page from a book that was with Aurleius on the night he was found.

Maybe a copy of the movie Evening for that book :shrug:

That's all I can think of. Good Luck, what a neat idea for a gift exchange!

I think the pattern , yarn and needles is a great idea but I know that not a single woman in the group knits lol. I would love to learn myself though!
Thanks!

I'm basically self taught, and only know a couple of stitches, but what I know is enough to make small projects, finding the time is a whole different story. You might include the links to a couple of of online knitting tutorials then too with the pattern. My favorite is Knitting Help
