Quiet, solitary pursuits such as reading and knitting are usually enhanced by a good cup of tea. And if the tea is good enough, the pursuit needn’t even be solitary.

That’s why Sip Tea Lounge in Huntington is starting up a knit-lit club, where customers are invited into the shop to work on their knitting or crochet projects, and to discuss a book. The first meeting is Wednesday, Aug. 28, at 10 a.m. and the book is “And the Mountains Echoed” by Khaled Hosseini.

Beginner and experienced knitters are welcome, and one of Sip’s knitting teamongers will be on hand to give advice. Another staff member will lead the book discussion.

Check Sip’s Facebook page for more information and for the dates and book selections for future meetings.

Sip Tea Lounge is at 286C New York Ave., Huntington, 631-683-5777,
