From the Inside Flap
What do you get when you combine a novice to the world of fiber working in a yarn shop with the owner, a mysterious, fairy-tale inspired character? You get Jaime Marsman's magical, whimsical story of "The Knitting Fairy" which is sure to be enjoyed by knitters everywhere. Penny Sitler, Executive Director of The Knitting Guild Association (TKGA), tkga.com
"Whenever an author combines stories and stitches, I smile. Jaime Marsman has done just that in her new book, 'The Knitting Fairy'. With a nod to Agatha Christie as well as fairy tales about Brownies who appear when no-one is looking to complete domestic tasks for those in need, Marsman has crafted a tale that combines mystery, fun, and knitting. Filled with phrases like, "she kitchnered Old Mrs. Harrison's toes together," "Oh, honey, let's go home and cable," and "as Louise reached into her small knitting bag, I had a distinct feeling of foreboding," knitters will find themselves laughing through each chapter, wondering who the knitting fairy could be!" Donna Druchunas, author of six knitting books including Arctic Lace, sheeptoshawl.com
"Amidst the characters, humour, and mystery is the fun of witnessing a non-knitter's assumptions and observations turn to affection and obsession. It made me wish to be a new knitter again!" Sally Melville, sallymelvilleknits.com, sallymelvilleknits.blogspot.com
"A page turning mystery with yarn shops and knitting - what else could you ask for!" Carol Feller, Author of Contemporary Irish Knits
A heartwarming and witty novel, guaranteed to make you smile. Molly Stevenson's new found love of yarn brings her comfort and friendship but leaves her with many unanswered questions. Appealing to the non-knitter as much as the knitaholic, this wonderful and enthralling mystery detailing the weird and wonderful goings on in Crabapple Yarns knitting store, will have you totally hooked." UK Hand Knitting Association, ukhandknitting.com
"It is obvious that Ms. Marsman is writing about what she knows: books, libraries and
yarns. I really enjoyed following Molly's adventures in learning to knit and solving mysteries. The Knitting Fairy always keeps you guessing!" Alissa Barton, Owner, Knitting Fairy Yarn Studio, knittingfairy.com
"What I loved best about The Knitting Fairy is how perfectly Jaime captured that as knitters we actually fall in love with knitting. She reminded me of the butterflies, excitement, and joy of falling in love with my first skein of luxury yarn, falling in love with perfectly tensioned stitches and the euphoria of completing my first project. Not only did The Knitting Fairy remind me of why I fell in love with knitting in the first place, it made me pause (as a deadline-driven professional) to think that I still need to stop and smell the roses from time to time." Kristin Omdahl, Author of 6 knitting books, styledbykristin.com
About the Author
Since the age of three, Jaime Marsman has long been fascinated with the simple shifting of letters to create different words, thoughts, and sentences.
As a knitwear designer for Live.Knit.Love, she has found the same thing to also be true of yarn. Perhaps that would explain the joy she feels every time she picks up her pen or her needles. Inspiring others with her work is one of Jaime's fondest goals and dreams. She wants people to realize the joy of creating and following their dreams in their own special ways.
Jaime is so grateful to God for His love and guiding hand in her life. She prays that everyone comes to have the joy and peace of knowing Him.

Fans of the Aunt Dimity series by Nancy Atherton would likely love these books.
Loved the story line, and the humor! I felt right at home in the "shop." I get those weird looks also when I tell people about quilting, so the book is true to form! The book develops very well - beautiful descriptions, realistic emotions, some romance, some mystery, and knitting! All in all - well done! The author set this up perfectly for additional books, with the new not so nice shop, the romance, the mysterious upstairs apartment, and of course, more yarn mishaps and successes! Very cute, and I will absolutely purchase future books from this author!
