We love to knit or we wouldn't be reading this blog, but when we aren't knitting we like to read about knitting. Am I right? There is a new fictional knitting series out by the author Terri Dulong. She lives in Cedar Key, FL and her first book is great. She sent it to me on Friday and I am finished with it already. The title is Spinning Forward and she already has two more set to be released by the end of this year. Her publisher must like her and I think you will too.
Cedar Key is a real town much like our little oasis of Fairhope. It is near and dear to my heart because I have lots of wonderful memories of spending alot of time there. My husband went to the Uof Florida in Gainsville and spent quite a few weekends there. We even thought about living there part time once but thanks to a hurricaine that deposited some sacred grass on out lots, we couldn't build on them. Oh well, another story there. Anyway, the story is really heartwarming and I think you will enjoy it.
Terri is coming to The Yarn Cottage on July 9 from 2:30 TO 4:30 sign her book for you. The book will be here for you to purchase. She seems really nice over the phone, I really shocked here with our common interest in Cedar Key. The town is a small fishing village on the Gulf side of Florida. My kids grew up during summers there learning to feel with their toes for sand dollars the size of sandwich plates in the mud when the tide was out. I saw my first live starfish there! It has undergone a uptick in recent years with restoration in the town, but the seafood is still great and it is the only place I have ever vacationed and come home rested. I am ready to go back today! Those fresh stone crab claws just can't be beat.
