It is a very good book with a touch of romance and a touch of mystery and drama with a touch of knitting and a rugged tough cowboy thrown in for good measure. You don't have to know a thing about knitting or crocheting to enjoy this book.
I loved the story-line and I loved the characters. I loved how Abigail was both strong and independent and vulnerable at the same time. I loved/hated how cowboy Cade was always looking for another notch to put on his belt (ahem) and how Abigail knocked him off the heels of his boots a few times. I'm looking forward to reading more books by Rachael Herron, (No pressure Rachael.) Her blog Yarnagogo can be found here.
Rachael Herron actually took the time to leave a comment on my blog and to offer condolences regarding the loss of my mom. Wow!
I also finished The Vermont Hat, (free pattern on Ravelry) that had been recommended by Joansie at Knitting By The Ocean. Joansie has a lot of beautiful knitting and photography on her blog, go have a look.
Actually, I finished 2 Vermont Hats.
I used Lion Brand Wool Ease Yarn in Indigo & Fisherman White as per the pattern and size 7 & 9 knitting needles; Boye Interchangeable set. I don't usually use the specified yarn in a pattern, but I already had the Indigo in my stash, so I went and got some Fisherman white, too. The Vermont Hat is a fun and easy knit. As suggested by the designer, I knit the hat in "His & Her's" colors. I still have yarn left over after finishing them.
Now, I need to get back to my Tea Leaves Cardigan.
