Watching a complex stitch pattern grow as I knit
silences the voice in my head that tells me to sweep the floor.
I imagine dust bunnies are knitting themselves together under my chair.

summeronblossomstreethbThe mail just came and I received a copy of Debbie Macomber’s newest book, Summer on Blossom Street. This is the fifth book in her Blossom Street series — knitting is a topic that runs through this series. I am excited because she used a quotation from me at the beginning of Chapter 35.

Ms Macomber’s 2009 Newsletter also mentions a new yarn shop in Port Orchard, Washington, named A Good Yarn Shop. Those of you familiar with her books will recognize that as the name of the shop on Blossom Street. I wish I didn’t live a gazillion miles away from there.
