About the Author

Debbie Macomber, the author of such beloved novels as TWENTY WISHES, BACK ON BLOSSOM STREET, SUSANNAH S GARDEN, A GOOD YARN, THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET, BETWEEN FRIENDS and the CEDAR COVE series, is one of today s leading voices in women s fiction. A regular on every major bestseller list with more than 60 million copies of her books sold, the award-winning author celebrated a new career milestone in September 2007, when the latest in her Cedar Cove series, 74 SEASIDE AVENUE, scored #1 on the NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, Publishers Weekly and Bookscan bestseller lists. Her popularity is worldwide with her books translated into twenty-three languages.

Debbie loves to tell the story of her struggle to get published, and the five-year search to find a publisher who would buy one of her manuscripts. Dyslexic and the mother of four young children, she wrote those early books in her kitchen on a rented typewriter. But her hard work and determination paid off. Her first manuscript, HEARTSONG, acquired by Silhouette Books in 1982, became the first category romance ever to be reviewed by the Publishers Weekly. She was soon featured in Newsweek and demand for her books quickly exceeded her wildest dreams.

Debbie is best known for her ability to create compelling characters and bring their stories to life in her books. Drawing on her own experiences and those of her family and friends, she demonstrates an almost uncanny ability to see into the souls of women and to express their emotions, values, and concerns. In every book, her sense of humor enlivens her writing.

An avid knitter, Debbie has parlayed her passion for the craft into garments for her grandchildren and bestselling books about women who knit. In her May 2007 hardcover, BACK ON BLOSSOM STREET, which debuted in the #8 slot on the New York Times bestseller list, Debbie welcomed back some familiar faces and introduced her readers to delightful new characters in the Seattle neighborhood introduced in THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET. There, the author continued her moving exploration of complex relationships and the special bonds formed by a group of diverse women who meet in knitting classes and face the challenges in their lives. Her following books have continued the theme much to her fans delight!

The knit-themed books warm reception in the knitting community ultimately influenced Leisure Arts, one of the world s largest publishers and distributors of needlework, craft, decorating, entertaining, and other lifestyle interest how-to books and DVDs, to create a series of companion books offering patterns inspired by the knitting projects tackled by the characters in the Debbie s books. The KNIT ALONG WITH DEBBIE MACOMBER series currently includes:

Knit Along with Debbie Macomber The Shop on Blossom Street

Knit Along with Debbie Macomber A Good Yarn

Knit Along with Debbie Macomber The Cedar Cove Series

Knit Along with Debbie Macomber Back on Blossom Street

Knit Along with Debbie Macomber Debbie's Favorites

Knit Along with Debbie Macomber Twenty Wishes

Knit Along with Debbie Macomber Friendship Shawls

But the story doesn t end there...For readers who have enjoyed Debbie s books and creating the knit projects inspired by their favorite characters thanks to Debbie s knitting how-to series, Leisure Arts has developed the KNIT ALONG WITH DEBBIE MACOMBER line of knitting accessories. The whole coordinated, designer-fabric-accented collection of patterns, storage options, and other knitting notions was designed with Debbie s readers in mind!

And on a special note:

Debbie is planning to donate the proceeds from the sale of her knitting accessories to charities.

Format: Paperback
This Knit Along was better than I had hoped!! DON'T read the knit along or even flip through it until you have finished the novel or you may get a spoiler!! The blankets are "dedicated" to different babies related to different characters in the book.

I was bummed that I flipped ahead but still VERY HAPPY with this book. There is a Sailboat blanket in the book that is just adorable and I am going to HAVE to make it up, I have never seen one like it.

The types of the blankets are: Baby Blocks (I'll probably make this one), Cables/Lace, All Over Lace with boucle yarn, Lace Panel with sewn on border, Modified Baby Cables (no cable needle needed, I'll make this one as well), Sailboats with Cables (A DEFINITE MAKE), Lace Diamonds (Probably make), Color Ripple, Lightweight All Over Open Cable-like Texture (really cute, probably make), Brickwork style with 2 colors (DEFINITELY MAKE and in the colors shown, it is called Petit Fours, reminds you of CHOCOLATE :)), Lacy Blocks (with bulky yarn ~ I'll make this one too). I couldn't give the names of the blankets or I may give something away!!

Anyway, a great companion book, I am so very glad I bought it and can't wait to start on, at the very least, the Sailboat and Petit Fours blankets!

Enjoy!

Macomber's 11 patterns for baby afghans is lovely! The recommended yarns are easily obtainable and affordable. The variety of afghans can be for babies, toddlers and could easily be altered for adults. I gave it 4 stars because the patterns were a little difficult to follow because of the formatting on the page and the lack of charts - the one I am working on could have been easier to follow if it had a chart - I had to retype the pattern to make it easier to follow. Do not let this discourage you from purchasing the book - just an observation and recommendation for future books!

I love her knitting novels. This book with the patterns from her first knitting book is super. Some of the patterns are a little challenging for a new knitter, but there are a few that are reasonably easy. The book is in an attractive format with very nice full color pictures of the projects. There are quite a few patterns included along with some knitting instructions. This is really worth the money.

Format: Paperback
When I got this book and paged through it, I was delighted with the baby blankets and I've decided to knit several of them. I was also excited because I love the "Yarn Shop" series. Debbie Macomber captures the spirit of a Local Yarn Shop beautifully.

So was I bitterly disappointed when I looked up the recommended yarns for the project. These are yarns that are available in large chain stores, not in local yarn shops. I can appreciate that people are interested in knitting affordably, but there could at least be a mix of yarns. Much of what I loved about the original books is the knitting community that takes place in a local yarn shop. Having ALL of the recommended yarns in the pattern books come from chain stores betrays the premise of the stories. The stories could not have taken place anywhere else, yet the companion books send you to buy yarn from the very stores that are driving small shops out of business.

Since I'm a beginner, this didn't have enough detailed information to start a project. The illustrations are beautiful though. When I get a little bit more basic knitting, I'm sure this book will come in handy.

i loved how the pattern book reflected the story that goes by the same name. the pictures were beautiful and the step-by-step instructions made me feel, as a beginner, that i could produce these same treasures. after reading each book, i am now anxious to start working on the same projects that lydia held classes in.

the corresponding patterns books are a must and i highly recommend them. they will extend the stories that you have read.

If you are an avid knitter and you are reading this book you may find yourself wanting to see the patterns and maybe trying them out yourself. This is the perfect complement to the novel as it lays out the patterns for all the items the ladies are making in the book. I've done one of the blankets so far and it was fairly easy to follow the pattern.

After reading the Blossom Street Books, I had to buy one of the knitting books. I ended up buying two! This book looks wonderful and the pictures are beautiful! I used to knit, but have not in years and years. I am going to begin again, with lessons, and also take my granddaughter with me! Thanks for the wonderful book!!
