I loved this book and the whole series. If you are crafty and like to be with other creative people, just read this book. It makes you feel like you are there with them. When women get together and share feelings and tell what happens in there lives, who needs therapists! This reminds me of my friends when we get together to quilt.

Characters I cared about, a story that kept me interested. Predictable in the way these books tend to be, but I still wanted to finish it to see exactly how Macomber worked out all the details. An enjoyable and quick read.

Great follow up to The Shop On Blossom Street. Fun read. Especially for a knitter. There's enough back information that if you have read The Shop On Blossom Street, you won't be lost.

A very enjoyable read, a page turner in the sense that I really wanted to know how things would turn out for each of the main characters. I'm a knitter, and I also enjoyed the knitting speak/insider information shared as part of this book. Highly recommended.

This book had me wanting more more more! I read the first one and no sooner had I closed the cover did this one appear at my door from the mailman. I read this one even more quickly than I read the first. It was a lovely read and, like the first, includes a knitting pattern. This one for socks. I highly recommend this book to anyone, not just knitters. It touches the soul and makes you feel incredibly lucky because you're life doesn't have nearly as much drama and heartache as the women in this book sometimes feel.

I have just finished this book which is the second in a series. It is from a heartfelt perspective and tells the story of realities of life for women who find community, as well as healing,in a knitting class. I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series and hope that you might start on that journey as well. Happy Reading!!!

When we last left Lydia Hoffman, she had just opened her knitting shop - A Good Yarn - on Blossom Street in downtown Seattle. This was her way of celebrating her cancer remission and she offered various knitting classes to those who wanted to learn such a skill. Well, in the year since A Good Yarn first opened, the little shop has thrived - and so has Lydia. This is due in no small part to Lydia's deep friendships with her first three students - Jacqueline Donovan, Carol Girard and Alix Townsend - and her close relationship with Brad Goetz.

But when Brad's ex-wife suddenly reappears in his life, Lydia is not really sure what to do. She only knows that she loves Brad's son, Cody, very much and that she's beginning to fall in love with his father as well. Lydia is suddenly terribly afraid and unable to fully trust her new found happiness.

Elise Beaumont, a retired librarian, joins one of Lydia's popular knitting classes. Since losing her life savings, Elise has been living with her daughter, Aurora - the only positive legacy from her brief but tumultuous marriage to professional gambler, Marvin 'Maverick' Beaumont. Now she learns that her onetime husband plans to visit, and that Aurora wants a relationship with her father, regardless of Elise's feelings about him or the present situation.

Bethanne Hamlin, like Elise, is facing the fallout from a divorce. However her husband, Grant, left her for another woman - not a deck of cards - and she's still struggling to rebuild and completely reshape her life. She joins the knitting class at her children's urging; determined that this will be her first step in her effort to recover a sense of dignity and hope. Then Bethanne starts her own small business and also meets a man with whom she has something remarkably surprising in common!

Courtney Pulanski is a seriously depressed and overweight teenager. Since her mother's death, she has been staying with her grandmother Vera. Vera is doing her best, trying to help Courtney...help that takes the form of dragging her reluctant granddaughter around to swimming sessions at the local Seniors' Center - and to the knitting class at A Good Yarn. Like so many women, these four find companionship and comfort with each other and in the age-old craft of knitting. Who knew that knitting socks could completely change someone's life?

I must say that I certainly enjoyed reading this book; the story was well-written and very poignant and sentimental. However, while the story was very good, and I'm glad to have read it; I will say that it was just the slightest bit too sugary sweet for my taste. I give A Good Yarn by Debbie Macomber an A! I will definitely read more books in the Blossom Street Series - or perhaps another book by Debbie Macomber - at some point in the future, but I think that I will wait for a while.

A Good Yarn is the second in this series by Debbie Macomber. This series is told from different women's points of view. Lydia is always in the books because she is the shop owner. I know nothing about knitting and was concerned about reading a book about a yarn shop. It brings the story to life without confusing you with a lot of knitting. It is a good read and brings old friends back from The Shop on Blossom Street (book 1).

The story of Lydia Hoffman and her yarn shop. It was not JUST a yarn shop, however, but a means of companionship and comfort for several women, all from different circumstances, but all needing the strength of the others. Good book!
