Family Tree

familytree.jpgI am a big fan of Barbara Delinsky and I am in totally in love with her new book – Family Tree. I just picked it up yesterday and started it this morning. The best part about the book so far is that the central character, Dana, is a knitter.

In the first chapter, Dana is getting ready to go to the hospital to delivery her daughter. And what is she taking with her? Knitting of course. When her husband says something about how many balls of yarn she is taking with her, her response is perfect. She tells him “Knitting comforts me.” This is followed by a description of a closet where thew were bags of yarn on the above and on the floor below the shelf. And she is defending her stash by saying that is is not as big as some out there. Who hasn’t defended their stash using the same words?

I can’t wait to sit down and really get into this book. I am hoping that the roads will be bad tonight so I can have a valid excuse to not go to class…..

The resulting Family Tree Knitting Collection Booklet #263 contains four patterns that are inspired by characters in her novel. Designed for the modern knitter with the concept of heirloom in mind…
