Wonderful. At times, a lot of times, irreverent, but almost always relatable.

Toni berkshire Hi, Lori - glad to meet you. Knitting books sounds good. I just finished, 'Died in the Wool', and Knit fast, Die Young, by Mary Kruger and Indigo Dying by Susan Witting Albert. Personally, I crochet, but haven't found many murder book series about crocheting, yet.
