I’m still knitting away on various projects and I’m continuing to read the Knit and Nibble series, this time in ebooks.
Died in the Wool was the second book in the series that I missed when I originally borrowed this series from the library. Pamela and her knitting group are selling knitted aardvarks as a fund raiser for the local school, but towards the end of the day a body is discovered under their table with an aardvark on its chest. Did the Knit and Nibblers unravel the murder?
The fifth book, A Fatal Yarn, starts out with knitted sweaters showing up on trees around town. They don’t refer to it as yarn bombing, but that is what it is called. This is a group called Yarnvaders and they seem to be putting sweaters on trees labelled with red x’s that are doomed to come down. Then there is the murder of the mayor. Rolland of the Knit and Nibble group is arrested for the murder. Pamela and Bettina set out to solve the murder as they feel the police are barking up the wrong tree, as the saying goes.
The sixth book, Knit of the Living Dead, is set at Hallowe’en. Some say they are wearing certain costumes, then at the last minute they change, but someone ends up dead. Did the killer think the person in the costume was someone else? Is the yarn tied around the neck a clue? Pamela and Bettina working on solving the murder.
These books are cozy mysteries, light and easy to read, stop, pick up, read a bit more etc. Each one includes a simple knitting pattern and a recipe.
Knitty Gritty Murder, 7th is the series is the next to download and read. This post shares the first books in the series that I read.
The fishtail lace scarf is all finished and I’m working on a couple of one stitch lace scarves. These will most likely be donations to different organizations, as with the start of the ‘ber’ or ‘brrr’ months is is getting more chilly and soon scarves will be needed. I’ll share the completed scarves and patterns soon.
For the nibbling part I made some gluten free chocolate chip cookies. It is always best to enjoy a cup of tea and a nibble while reading.
Time to join Book Date.
