Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Anyone reading some of the series that combine crafting and fiction? There are a lot of series out there. If you want to start a discussion, let me or Susan know and we'll create a discussion folder and mark your book as one group is currently reading.

Notably Crewel World (A Needlecraft Mystery, #1) by Monica Ferris, The Shop on Blossom Street (Blossom Street, #1 ) by Debbie Macomber and I know I found several mystery/crime-series that talked about knitting/knitters, etc. Feel free to discuss here and add books to (if link goofy, just go over to the righthand menu choices and to this group's "bookshelf" and then the shelf for "fiction-meets-crafting")

Love Scrapbooking and there is a great series by Laura Childs-I added it to our shelves! :)

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Ran across someone else's list of fictional knitting books (not adding all to our group bookshelf as not necessarily familiar with books listed):

I am currently reading Hooked on Murder by Betty Hechtmanby Betty Hechtman. I also know Maggie Sefton does a series on Knitting and Murder. I have a lot of cozy mysteries on my bookshelf that have crafting and fiction combined

I love the Maggie Sefton knitting series. I have also read the series by Monica Ferris and Debbie Macomber. The crochet series is also interesting.

Melannie | 5 comments I too recently became a Maggie Sefton fan but I just finished reading Barbara Bretton's Spells and Stitches. Seems like I have the habit of jumping into a series then back tracking....

Debbie's Spurts (D.A.) Do feel free to add those to group bookshelf...anything marked "currently reading" shows on group home page. (That's perfectly okay to do, too; with everyone into so many different crafts the group doesn't do the traditional book of the month thing so you aren't overwriting a "September" or "October" read kind of thing -- we'd just as soon see a variety.)

Katherine (kittybean) | 1 comments I'm currently reading Sora' s Quest by T.L. Shreffler and I am considering knitting the shawl mentioned in the story. I love knitting, and can't keep my hands still!
