I finished reading Rachael Herron‘s second novel this week: How to Knit a Heart Back Home. (Rachael was kind enough to arrange for me to receive a review copy, but I will confess to you that I also purchased the Kindle edition so I could read it on my iPad.)
This is the second book in Rachael’s “Cypress Hollow” series and I think it is even better than the first, which I enjoyed thoroughly. The story takes place in the same town, but the main characters are different. A nice Barbara Pym-like touch, however, is that the main characters in the first book (How to Knit a Love Song) make cameo appearances in this book. Rachael writes well and sucks you immediately into the story. There’s a nice amount of knitting content, as well as an original pattern for a very pretty sweater that is integral to the plot.
Rachael has offered a free copy of How to Knit a Heart Back Home to one of my readers, so let’s do a drawing.
To be entered in the drawing, leave a comment to this blog post, by 11:00am Eastern Time on Sunday, March 13, 2011. The great and might Random Number Generator will be awakened from its lair and exhorted to pick a winner from the comments. Then I’ll get the winner hooked up with Rachael and if you ask nice I bet she’ll even sign your copy.
Please note that as usual, I require you to leave a comment to be entered into the drawing. But for every drawing I hold, I still get emailed entries, and even Ravelry messages. Please read this page if you are unsure how to leave a comment and/or wonder why I require entries via comment only.
Thanks for all your lovely comments about the Twisty Aran. I appreciate them very much!
I seem to have had many non-knitting things cutting into my knitting time this week. But the baby sweater is coming along as you can see:
Nothing much else to see here, apart from Lucy.
