What do you see when you look at the pattern this self-striping sock yarn is making? I don't think it's suppose to create a deliberate pattern, but I definitely see rabbits. Teenage Daughter saw deer, Teenage son saw Kokopelli, and Hubby thinks we're all nuts.
Kiki Lowenstein finally had her baby! It feels like I've been on pins and needles forever anticipating Glue Baby Gone and the book was definitely worth the wait. (I actually read it the day it was released, then somehow forgot to write about it.) After a delivery that definitely didn't go as planned, Kiki isn't coping well. Postpartum depression, a discussion with her teenage daughter about which pictures should not be shared publicly, a newborn stolen from a local hospital....there's a lot going on in this one -- and that's before the ending leaves readers hanging and waiting for the next book.
Ellie Haskell is summoned to St. Roberta's, the boarding school she attended as a child, to recover a stolen lacrosse trophy. Although Ellie enjoyed novels about the boarding school life, her memories of her own school experiences are less than perfect. Goodbye Ms. Chips by Dorothy Cannell is a cozy mystery that never really managed to pull me into the plot. There was nothing about the book that I particularly disliked, but there was also nothing I loved.
Disclosure -- I was provided with an advance review copy of Goodbye Ms. Chips. I bought Glue Baby Gone with my own money. All opinions are my own. This post is linked to Patchwork Times, Yarn Along, iknead2knit
