which is knitted in Lana Grossa Cotton Fun. I knitted as I mean to go on: furiously all evening.

I've just finished reading The Shop on Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber. A good idea, this, cashing in on the knitting boom by setting the story of four women in a yarn store. Not enough detail about the knitting for my taste but I see that the next book in the series, The Yarn Store, has a lot about sock knitting so I might persevere.
