{Yarn Along} Forget Me Knot

Did I mention that I love this yarn? I'm almost to the heel and the colors are doing more pretty and unexpected things. It's a good thing that I had no intention of making my socks match, because I'm not sure it would be possible to figure out the repeat in this colorway. 


The Croc Socks are out again, too, because they're too neat not to finish. If I'm going to knit from my stash for a while, I'm using the good stuff!  



Forget Me Knot is the first in a new series of quilting mysteries by Mary Marks. Here's the book's description from Amazon -- Martha and her besties Lucy and Birdie are set to expand their Quilty Tuesdays by inviting newcomer Claire Terry into their group. Though at forty Claire’s a tad younger than their average age, her crafty reputation could perk up their patchwork proceedings, especially as they prepare for the fancy quilt show coming to town. But when they arrive at Claire’s home and find her dead inside the front door, and her exquisite, prize-winning quilts soon missing, Martha is not one to leave a mystery unraveled. Especially if she wants to stop a killer from establishing a deadly pattern…

It was a fun read, with just enough quilting details to provide me that vicarious crafting fix that's what first drew me to this type of cozy mystery. The story is focused mainly on the murder mystery and stolen quilts. 

Disclosure -- the publisher provided me with an electronic ARC.

Your sock yarn is really pretty! Looking forward to seeing the finished sock. Thanks for the book suggestion. Sounds like a good one. Have you read Marie Bostwick's series? I really enjoy her books.
