A Good Yarn my Summer Book


Hello I have now started to read "A Good Yarn" By Debbie Macomber. I cannot wait to finish this book. It is really getting interesting with bouncing back and forth with the lives of the characters that sign up for one of Lydia's knit classes. Lydia is the owner of the Blossom Street yarn shop that is the focal point of the books theme. It starts off with the first class, consisting of three women, and it is a disaster. One is irritable, another lacks basic confidence, and the third is a miserably unhappy teen. The story goes back and forth to each woman's story, A GOOD YARN takes the disparate threads and (okay, I can't resist) knits them together into one warm and snuggly shawl of a tale as the knitters form a supportive community. A truly enjoyable read that intertangle their lives which is still a mystery to me. But I am intrigued with it. I just got Back on Blossom Street, by Debbie Macomber from my good friend Jaynee in a book swap we were in together and so I will start that one right after I finish this book in the Blossom Street series. It centers around a yarn shop on Blossom Street, of course, in a small town in WA. I do so love Seattle, which is where Debbie Macomber is from. Be sure to read this one.
