Knitting Bones by Monica Ferris is the 11th book of the Needlecraft Mystery series set in contemporary small town Excelsior, Minnesota. Betsy Devonshire, owner of needlework store Crewel World, accidentally breaks her leg on a horseback ride with her good friend Jill. Betsy's store manager and right-hand man Godwin "Goddy" DuLac capably steps in to represent the shop at the Embroiderers' Guild of America (EGA) convention. Goddy's in the audience when a representative of the Heart Coalition receives a huge donation from the EGA.

When the man and the check go missing, Goddy urges Betsy to investigate the case. Betsy can't leave her apartment to ask questions, but he's eager to do so, with her guidance. At first, Goddy makes an understandable beginner's mistake - fitting evidence to a preformed theory. Betsy coaches him to consider all the evidence, not only the evidence that fits a particular suspect.

In thriller style, parallel chapters detail the increasing troubles (self-inflicted) of Tony Milan, aka "Stoney". Waking up in the hospital after a car accident, he doesn't have any memory of it. Nor does he recognize clothing and jewelry items in his personal effects bag. Continuing his take-advantage-of-others lifestyle, he creates more trouble for himself, and a trail of clues that trace back to him.

In an oddball (yet key) subplot, Betsy assists in smuggling a wounded crow out of state.
