Iwas in Barnes and Nobles about 3 weeks ago and i was looking around my usual section full of knititng books. I stumbled upon this knititng author who writes murder mysteries.~ it's an interesting read~~ and OF COURSE she talks(and teaches) the reader alot about natural yarns, spinning, dying and etc.

I actually met her when I was in Denver... and went to Lambspun of Colorado that the books are based on :) It was my first experience with a real LYS and it was incredible! She's really great to talk to... I had lots of fun.

I've heard of her but never read her. One of my fellow bloggers says that between her book that she is currently reading and my blogs about my own experience learning to knit that she is now wanting to learn.

I've read the Maggie Sefton books, and I'm so excited to learn of another coming out. I'll be looking for it. Jan in Ca, thanks for the list of other knitting novels. I'll have to check them out.
