  72. Oooh I LOVE mysteries, but right now I’m reading Inkheart. I hate to see book-movies before reading the book although this usually means the movie is ruined for me, but my mom just read it and gave it to me… and I’m not one to shirk off a free book. (~_^)v

    So, I’ve been following your blog for some time now and you came to mind last night during the T-shirt class that I’m currently teaching over at bolt fabric boutique ~ I was talking to the students about the cool things that they can make once they have mastered sewing knits and I mentioned that you sew running gear. One student sarcastically groaned, “oh great, so she can sew AND she goes running! Add that to my list of things to do.” :)
    It was kudos to you!
    The book I JUST finished is called The Book Thief. Tragically sad and a good reminder of WWII Germany

  86. Amy Bee says:

    I’m reading “Wives and Daughters,” by Elizabeth Gaskell. When your book cover image opened in my browser, I thought it was going to read,”Death by Cashews.” Have to admit, I read almost anything but do prefer knitting mystery over a nut myster. ;-)

  87. Kathy says:

  91. Emma says:

    Kathryn A. summed it up perfectly–two-word heartstopper!
    My dad called me from a bookstore last Friday afternoon and said, “Have you read ‘The Friday Night Knitting Club?'” I hadn’t, so he bought it for me, and I’ve just started it.
    (I think this speaks to great success that I have my family trained to think of me when they see knitting and craft-related things. Lucky me!)

  92. Lisa LaFratta says:

    I just finished reading “The Friday Night Knitting Club” and it was a fun read. I just started on “Pillars of the Earth” on CD (so I can still knit) and I’m hooked!

  93. Misty says:
