In the spare bedroom at Patty's house was Debbie Macomber's The Shop on Blossom Street
http://www.amazon.com/Shop-Blossom-Street-Knitting-Books/dp/0778321606. [The book came from a perfectly charming woman who is about to finish her PhD in biology on some organism, so she is allow any trash reading she wants.] It was badly edited, it was silly, and it only barely said anything interesting about knitting. Of course, I read it since it was knitting trash reading but I will NEVER pay money for it or any of the successors. It tries to suck you in with "good quotes" from "good knitters" but there is just too much nonsense about men, and finance, and g*d for my taste. Has anyone read a good novel on knitting or is it like the genre of "dog" novels? Okay, I just thought I should add this little warning/confession to you all.
looking forward to one day on and one day off and one day on and two days off at work and no T-giving traveling. Hope all are well.
