Today, I’m going to talk about knitting a shawl and do a book review.

I’ve literally fallen in love with Debbie Macomber’s books.

Especially the Blossom Street’s Series.

Welcome to A Good Yarn, a fictional the little shop on Blossom Street in Seattle.

Where knitters go for yarn, supplies and patterns, and where they form lasting friendships in Lydia Hoffman’s knitting classes.

Other businesses have sprung up there,  including a French Cafe, Susannah’s Garden and Blossom Street Books. 

Reviews

#Sarah– I have only ever read Debbie Macomber’s Blossom Street series, but her ability to draw you in and make you feel like you’re really experiencing the events firsthand is uncanny.

After reading all three series set in the yarn shop “A Good Yarn, I wanted to rush off to Seattle and meet Lydia myself……

rate it ★★★★★

#Lisa– I think Debbie Macomber is my Fairy God -author.

She seems to have come along just when I was in need of her cozy, comforting stories about relatable female characters that actually you want to root for.

Her prose is easy and smooth, and along with her warm-hearted but un-Pollyanna-like stories, results in a unique style……

Back On Blossom Street

Every  Wednesday on Blossom Street a group of women meet for a knitting class, each has their own worries and troubles.

Lydia is happy with the life she has built but she’s anxious about her ageing mother and her sister, Margaret’s daughter has recently been attacked.

Alix’s wedding plans have been hijacked by her friends who, to her horror, want the social event of the year. With her troubled background, can she be the perfect bride?

Colette’s husband has only been dead a year but she’s pregnant with another man’s child. To make matters worse, her lover is her boss!

As friendship deepen these women start to confide in each other, but will listening and sharing be enough for them to move forward, leaving their pasts behind?

“Why a shawl, then?” Alex asked.

I shrugged. “What do the rest of you think?”

Collette spoke first. “Wrapping a shawl around someone is a symbolic embrace. That’s how it seems to me, anyway.”

The others nodded.

“I like what Collette said-it’s like a hug.”

Susannah sounded as if she was thinking out loud.

Debbie Macomber, she knows what people want.

Her stories make my heart warm and flutters.

This time, Lydia’s knitting project is for a prayer shawl.

So!! I’m going to knit a shawl, it seems to be a good season to wear a shawl and I like the idea of what Collette said.

I’m not sure yet what kind of design knit it is, simple or pattern? 

I will post a picture when I have finished knitting it.

 

 

Shell we knit together?
