143761Today I wanted to return to the shop on Blossom street, 🙂 and revisit  A Good Yarnan old favorite of mine, by one of my favorite authors, Debbie Macomber.

Lydia Hoffman owns the shop on Blossom Street. In the year since it opened, A Good Yarn has thrived-and so has Lydia. A lot of that is due to Brad Goetz.

But when Brad’s ex-wife reappears, Lydia is suddenly afraid to trust her newfound happiness.

Three women join Lydia’s newest class. Elise Beaumont, retired and bitterly divorced, learns that her onetime husband is reentering her life. Bethanne Hamlin is facing the fallout from a much more recent divorce. And Courtney Pulanski is a depressed and overweight teenager, whose grandmother’s idea of helping her is to drag her to seniors’ swim sessions-and to the knitting class at A Good Yarn.

Paperback, 380 pages
Published May 1st 2006 by Mira Books (first published 2005)
Genre: Women’s Fiction, Contemporary, Crafts/Knitting, Romance

“Welcome to A Good Yarn,that fictional 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 the French Café, Susannah’s Garden and Blossom Street Books.”

My Thoughts

I find Debbie Macomber’s books to be charming and delightful. You know what you are getting between the pages of a Macomber book; a fun, light read. A Good Yarn is no different.

A Good Yarn is probably my favorite book by Debbie Macomber. I love the characters, specifically Courtney Pulankski, who would have rather been anywhere else but a knitting class. It really isn’t about the knitting though, but if you enjoy knitting you would appreciate the references to knitting.

What it is about are the women students who are taking the knitting classes, their personal lives, and what brings everyone together. Each character is very different from one another, and yet they all become friends, bonding over needles and yarn. 🙂

Interesting Fact about A Good Yarn

A Good Yarn is book 2 out of 10 in The Blossom Street Series.
