This book is not something you read if you're looking for a deep, intellectual book. The characters are a bit predictable and one-dimensional, but this book was a fun read.

Not nearly enough knitting. :)
I liked it over all and the characters were all very different from one another and interesting but there seemed to be a lot of small plot holes -not big enough to really affect the stories but big enough to annoy the reader. I read it aloud to my mom and sister on a long car trip and they felt the same. The way the book was written was strange in places, as if it wasn't intended originally to be just one book. The stories were good and I remained interested in the women's lives though. Overall, I'm quite glad I requested it.

This is a wonderful story of four women's very different lives and how a simple knitting class brings them together. There were definitely some tearful moments in this book, as well as some laugh-out-loud moments. Each of the characters brings something completely unique to the table and you can't help but silently root for all of them as the story plays out, and their lives become more intertwined.

I was really skeptical about this book at first, and this sounds awful, but it was because its a MMP. I was worried it would be a romance novel, and while there is romance in it there are no TMI sex scenes. It made me cry several times, and overall it was a good book. I think I will read the sequel too. Happy Reading!

THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET is a fabulous deep character study that rotates the narration between the women so that the audience has four subplots that cleverly knit together into a powerful look at the ups and downs of modern day living. Though not all dreams are fulfilled and some change for instance to cooking, fans will enjoy Debbie Macomber's strong tale of four females struggling to overcome different setbacks.

When Lydia Hoffman, a cancer patient in remission, opens a small yarn shop on Blossom street in Seattle, she doesn't yet realize that the three women who sign up to take her first knitting class will soon become her closest friends. Jacqueline, a soon-to-be grandmother, decides that knitting a blanket for her new grandchild might be a way to prove to her daughter-in-law that she will be the best grandmother in the world, even if she doesn't approve of her son's pregnant Southern wife. Alix is scraping to make ends meet when, on a whim, she throws down the $15.00 for the knitting class to meet a court-ordered requirement for community service. Carol and her husband have desperately tried to conceive a child for years. When she sees an advertisement to make a baby blanket in the knitting class, she believes it is a sign that her baby is finally on the way! These four women forge an unlikely friendship during their weekly knitting lessons and learn much more than just how to knit, they learn valuable lessons about patience, acceptance, and love.

I ordered this sweet novel from paperbackswap.com because I have been very curious about Debbie Macomber. I see her books all over the place- Target, the bookstore, the coffee shop giveaway pile, the grocery store and even in the pile of books we swap at school. I had never read anything by Macomber and wanted to see if she was any good. As I was reading this novel I found myself thinking about it in terms I would usually use to describe a person. The words that came to mind were calm, pleasing, and sentimental. It was a calm, pleasing, and sentimental book- the perfect book to share with your grandmother. I enjoyed it and will read more by the author!

I didn't think that I'd enjoy this book, but I couldn't put it down till I finished! Four ladies meet at a yarn shop while learning to knit. While they have nothing in common they become close friends. I "knew" these ladies and was cheering them on throughout the story. I can't wait to start the next book "A Good Yarn" which I am picking up from my Mom today!

This is my first full book by Macomber. I read one of her short story based on Blossom Street. Although I didn't love that story it did peek my interest to check out the rest of her books. I am glad I did because I really enjoyed this one.

I like how the characters change throughout the book. Characters I thought I hated turned out nicely while characters I loved turned out more flawed than I wished for. It might sound like I'm complaining but I'm really not. I loved that her characters aren't perfect.

It is a quick read and the story seems to give you a glimpse in these women's lives with a promise to revisit them later. Now I might go back to read the short story over again just to appreciate the cameos by these characters.

Well worth the read. There were definitely lots of tears though.

Put 4 individuals with "nothing in common" together frequently enough, and they'll find that they do in fact have a lot in common. Macomber manages to blend disparate lives together until they are all changed and can't go back to what they were before. This story makes you sit back and look at all your friends and how they've impacted your life. A quick read, hard to put down.

Another great Debbie Macomber book. I don't know why I was hesitant to read this book - maybe because I am not into knitting. You don't need to be to enjoy this book. If you love the "Cedar Cove" series, you will love this as well.

Lynda Hoffman is a cancer survivor, and new shop owner of A Good Yarn, a knitting store located in Seattle. This is the story of 4 women, each completely different from the other, but come to find themselves friends after meeting in a knitting class. Although not my style of book (a little too feel good), I thought it was a great read and will continue with the series.

Knitting and books go together like me and my dogs. The back cover reads "There's a little yarn shop on Blossom Street in Seattle..." Let's jost say it's one of the reasons I moved to the area. Great book. And if you haven't started knitting, it's a great reason to start. I got this book after knitting for three years; it was one of my first knitting books. Wonderful read.

Bestselling romance author and ardent knitter Debbie Macomber combines both her skills in this novel about a newly opened Seattle yarn shop and the knitting class that brings four women together to make baby blankets. The owner of the shop and her three students produce more than blankets, knitting together bonds of solidarity, friendship, love, hope, and renewal. The book even includes the pattern for the blanket, which was created by premier knitting designer Ann Norling.

One of Macomber's best books....

A thirty year old cancer survivor opens up a knitting shop. Some of her regular customers include: an older country-club, high society type who doesn't like her new daughter-in-law and has marital problems; a young woman with a punk attitude who has had a horrible upbringing and is knitting to fulfill anger management obligations; and a woman who wants nothing more than to be a mother but has infertility issues. The four women become close friends as they deal with their ups and downs.

The shop on Blossom Street is Lydia's effort to get on with her life after beating cancer twice.

I've got to admit that I had never s read Debbie Macomber's book. Not sure why since thousands of you are advid fans. So I finally read this book--out of curiosity. I was intrigued on how she was able to take four women, from totally different backgrounds and weave an effective plot. Were parts of the book predictable? Probably so. But, there were a few twists to the stories which I didn't see coming. She was effective in the fact that I felt different emotions throughout the book. I really enjoyed the interaction between RB ("rich bitch")Jacqueline to Alex; a woman who has had a hard life and is a little rough around the edges. I do recommend the book.

Book one of the Blossom Street series. When cancer survivor Lydia Hoffman opens a yarn store a group of unlikely women become friends through their love of knitting. Jacqueline is a society woman who is hiding her disappointment in her marriage and new daughter-in-law. Alix is a woman with a troubled past struggling to accept friendship and love from others. Carol and her husband want a child more than anything, but have been dealing with infertility for years. Through knitting and female bonding they all find the happiness that has alluded them.
As with all of Macomber's books, I finished the book with a happy positive feeling. It also made me want to take knitting lessons!

I'm a crocheter, and I typically find yarn/yarn art related fiction very enjoyable. However, I definitely prefer "The Friday Night Knitting Club" by Kate Jacobs over the first Blossom Street book. Don't get me wrong, I didn't dislike this book, but I didn't love it, either. I found pretty much everything to be rather predictable and bland. I also really disliked how Lydia told her story in 1st person, but everyone else was written in 3rd person.

I bought this book in the hospital gift shop when my husband was in for extensive surgery. Probably due to my own situation, I fell in to this story line. (I don't knit but enjoy crochet - close enough to enjoy the knitting shop theme.) I've since read the series, and until A TURN IN THE ROAD I had enjoyed them (just couldn't get in to that one). THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET started me on the Debbie Macomber Cedar Cove Series, which I really enjoyed!

The way Debbie Macomber weaves the lives of 4 women together is done so well I could hardly put the book down. I found myself drawn in as if I actually knew these women. I almost wanted to join a knitting class just to find similar friendships.

A group of women come together at this knitting shop to join a class. This group of women are very diverse, coming from all sorts of backgrounds. As the classes meet, they talk and learn so much about each other. They are there for knitting, but it becomes more than just knitting. They support each other in all their walks of life. This book is very enjoyable, and you look forward to reading about each of the women and how their lives work out.

The Shop on Blossom Street books tells the story of a young woman and cancer survivor who opens a knitting store. Offering knitting classes to attract customers, three women come to the shop to learn how to make a baby blanket. But these three women couldn't be more different or come to the classes for different reasons which don't necessarily include learning how to knit. And we as readers watch as these three women learn the stitches, watch their baby blankets take shape, and find themselves learning more about each other, helping each other with their projects and influencing each other's lives. By the end of the book we find them forming lasting friendships and we know we won't soon forget these knitters.

But finally in the end she got her child through Alix a friend of her's had a baby and wanted to kill it. So sad. I am so happy that Carol finally got the family she wanted. And Alix overcame alot by getting the guy she always wanted fullfilling her dream at culinary school. LOVE LOVE LOVE the story.

Four lives knit together....
There's a little shop on Blossom Street in Seattle. You go there to buy yarn, knitting supplies, and patterns-and now you can join a knitting class. How To Knit A Baby Blanket, that's the first lesson.
Lydia Hoffman owns the shop, which she calls A Good Yarn. It represents her dream of a new beginning, a life free from the cancer that has ravaged her twice. A life that offers a chance at love...and maybe marriage.
Jacqueline Donovan, the first woman to join the class, is estranged from her husband; her marriage has dwindled into an arrangement of separate rooms and separate lives. She disapproves of the woman married to her only son, but if she knits a baby blanket, she can at least pretend to like her pregnant daughter-in-law.
For Carol Girard, the baby blanket brings a message of hope, as she and her husband make a final attempt at in vitro pregnancy.
And tough looking Alix Townsend-that's Alix with an "i"-is learning to knit her blanket for a court-ordered community service project.
These four women, brought together by the age-old craft of knitting, make unexpected discoveries-about themselves, and each other. Discoveries that lead to love, to friendship, and acceptance, to laughter and dreams. Discoveries only women can share...

From Publishers Weekly
A Seattle knitting store brings together four very different women in this earnest tale about friendship and love. Lydia Hoffman, a two-time cancer survivor, opens the shop A Good Yarn as a symbol of the new life she plans to lead. She starts a weekly knitting class, hoping to improve business and make friends in the area. The initial class project is a baby blanket, and Macomber (Changing Habits), a knitter herself who offers tips about the craft and pithy observations from knitting professionals throughout the novel, includes the knitting pattern at the start of the book. Well-heeled Jacqueline Donovan, who chooses to ignore her empty marriage, disguises her disdain for her pregnant daughter-in-law by knitting a baby blanket. Carol Girard joins the group as an affirmation of her hopes to finally have a successful in vitro pregnancy. Alix Townsend, a high school dropout with an absentee father and a mother incarcerated for forging checks, uses the class to satisfy a court-ordered community service sentence for a drug-possession conviction for which her roommate is really responsible. Unfortunately, Macomber doesn't get much below the surface of her characters, and, although they all have interesting back stories, the arc of each individual happy ending is too predictable. The only surprise involves Alix's hapless, overweight roommate, Laurel, and even this smacks of plot-driven manipulation. Macomber is an adept storyteller overall, however, and many will be entertained by this well-paced story about four women finding happiness and fulfillment through their growing friendships.

A fun book for knitters and readers of light romantic novels. Lydia Hoffman opens a yarn shop and starts a knitting class. 3 women who are as different as morning, noon and night enroll and find their lives joined together as well. Alix, a punk rocker who needs a community service project, Jacqueline, looking to reconcile with her daughter-in-law, and Carol, who battles infertility, become fast friends despite Lydia's concerns to the contrary.

Another one of Debbie Macomber's great reads

A Seattle knitting store brings together four very different women in this earnest tale about friendship and love. Lydia Hoffman, a two-time cancer survivor, opens the shop A Good Yarn as a symbol of the new life she plans to lead. She starts a weekly knitting class, hoping to improve business and make friends in the area. The initial class project is a baby blanket, and Macomber (Changing Habits), a knitter herself who offers tips about the craft and pithy observations from knitting professionals throughout the novel, includes the knitting pattern at the start of the book. Well-heeled Jacqueline Donovan, who chooses to ignore her empty marriage, disguises her disdain for her pregnant daughter-in-law by knitting a baby blanket. Carol Girard joins the group as an affirmation of her hopes to finally have a successful in vitro pregnancy. Alix Townsend, a high school dropout with an absentee father and a mother incarcerated for forging checks, uses the class to satisfy a court-ordered community service sentence for a drug-possession conviction for which her roommate is really responsible. Unfortunately, Macomber doesn't get much below the surface of her characters, and, although they all have interesting back stories, the arc of each individual happy ending is too predictable. The only surprise involves Alix's hapless, overweight roommate, Laurel, and even this smacks of plot-driven manipulation. Macomber is an adept storyteller overall, however, and many will be entertained by this well-paced story about four women finding happiness and fulfillment through their growing friendships.

I'd never heard of Debbie Macomber--I just wanted to read this book because it's about knitting. Then I saw it was published by Mira Books (a Harlequin imprint), as are some of the books by one of my favorite chicklit authors, Jennifer Crusie. Turns out Macomber is much more of a traditional romance novelist than anything I've ever read--Mira Books categorizes this book as a "relationship novel," whereas Crusie's books are "romantic comedy" or "contemporary romance."

"The Shop on Blossom Street" is about a 30-year-old virgin/two-time brain cancer survivor, Lydia, who opens a yarn shop on Blossom Street in Seattle, Washington, called A Good Yarn. She teaches a beginners' baby blanket class to three women: Jacqueline, a haughty, celibate fiftysomething society matron; Carol, an infertile woman in her thirties; and Alix, a surly twentysomething drug offender with black & purple hair. (Macomber just mentions in passing that Alix is not inexperienced. Unlike the others, she's not defined by how much play she's getting.) Each chapter focuses on a different woman; Lydia's chapters are first-person & begin with a knitting-related epigraph, such as "'The yarn forms the stitches, the knitting forges the friendships, the craft links the generations.' (Karen Alfke, "Unpattern" designer)."

#2 of a new series. Loved it as much as Book 1. Macomber has found a winner with characters you care about and descriptions of places and happenings that make you feel as you are right there with them. I am not a romance fan, but a girlfriend recommended this series, and I was hooked.

According to DebbieMacomber.com:

After THE SHOP ON BLOSSOM STREET went to press, we discovered an error in the knitting pattern included in the book. The pattern reads, \"Rep Rows 13-36 until piece measures approximately 42\" and you have worked Row 16 or 32.\" It should say, \"Rep Rows 13-36 until piece measures approximately 42\" and you have worked Row 36.\"

This is the first Debbie Macomber book I have read. I enjoyed her ability to weave the lives of four completely different people in the knitting class together into a cohesive group. Each chapter is titled a character's name and the content deals with what is going on in that character's life. Consequently, the reader gets to know and love each character and feels a part of their lives as well. It made me want to learn to knit and join a class of my own. I ordered her second book in the series.

I love this story. This is the fourth time I've read it but I guess I'm old enough now that stories will always be new each time. I love to knit myself and so I was drawn to this story because each book has a knitting pattern in the front. Lydia is a 2-time cancer survivor that opens a yarn store as an affirmation of life. She offers a knitting class and three women sign up. These women couldn't be more different in personality and even though they bump heads in the beginning they end up forging some close friendships. The characters in this story are all wonderful and I find myself wanting to know more about them. Each chapter has the name of the person it will be about instead of a title and I always find myself wanting to jump forward to read more about a certain person or situation. I especially like Alix but I also really feel a connection with Lydia. I may not have cancer but I do battle with chronic pain/Fibromyalgia and many of the things she says really resonated with me.
