A Good Yarn

Nice birthday filled with love and chocolate cake (yum).

I love to read, as evidenced by the bookshelves throughout our house. In addition to the chocolate cake (and pizza for dinner) hubby brought me a book for birthday. It's titled The Shop On Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. He said...it's about a yarn shop called A Good Yarn. That got my interest.

I hadn't read anything by this author before but a book that includes knitting did sound intriguing. I read a couple of chapters last night. It's actually pretty good!

Did you read it? Are there any knitting patterns??

P.S. Thank you for the birthday wishes!

I have read it. There's another one with the same characters but I can't think of the title. Both pretty good. I think each book has a pattern....one is a baby blanket and the other is socks. The "baby blanket" book is the first one and the "socks" book continues the story.

The book looks interesting. There is also a series of books that contain needlepoint samples. They're mysteries written by Monica Ferris. The same sort of premise - except the needlwork shop owner, Betsy Devonshire, is also a part-time sleuth. The book I have is "Embroidered Truths" and the back of the book has "Tlatolli Pattern" to embroider. The pattern was part of the mystery.
