A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber - #7

The second of the knitting books by Debbie Macomber. This time it is a year after Lydia Hoffman has opened her yarn shop, A Good Yarn. After her first successful class she has decided to hold another class on how to make socks. Once again she has an eclectic group of people in her class. Courtney is an overweight teen who has moved to town to live with her grandmother for her senior year of high school. Bethanne is a recently divorced mother of two teenagers who needs to finally do something for herself. Elise is a retired librarian who has lost her life savings and is living with her daughter's family. When her pro-gambler ex-husband shows up there is trouble. Through the process of making socks these women become friends and knit their lives together (pun intended).

I loved the first book in the series, The Shop on Blossom Street, so I knew I would like this one. I like how Macomber introduces these new characters as well as keeping us updated on the three students from the original book. A third book in the series, Back on Blossom Street, was released earlier this year. Macomber is quickly becoming on of my favorite authors and I can not wait to read some of her other books.
