The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society by Beth Pattillo is a quick predictable read. Eugenie is the town librarian who foists a rebellious teen on her knitter book group. It reminded me of the Blossom Street books by Debbie Macomber. But it had knitting and books, so I enjoyed it. A nice light summer read. And Pattillo is coming out with book 2 in June.
I love the Mary Russell/Sherlock Holmes books that Laurie R.. King writes. The 9th book in the series, The Language of Bees, does not disappoint. A lost son reappearing, Druids, sacrifices, and a lot of history make for an interesting read.
Baby Beanies, Happy Hats to Knit for Little Kids, by Amanda Keeys. This book was published in 2008 and starts with the usual diagrams and basic knitting instructions. And a simple roll brim hat pattern. Other patterns include a pixie hat, a scarf hat (a scarf and hat knit in one piece) — interesting concept. There is a hat with a peak on each side named a Flour Sack Hat. Lots of hats with long tails or pointed tops or ear flaps. My favorite is the Alien Spaceship which is a simple roll brim with a bright tassel top and brightly colored bobbles on the body of the hat. Most are sized from 0-2 years.
