Summary

A 17-year-old boy joins a knitting class as penance for shoplifting and learns a lot about himself in the process

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...

NOTE : Strong language used throughout, in typical context for adolescent boys, some references to sex and innuendos are also used
