Knitting and books

Knitting and reading are two of my favorite things to do.
As I was browsing the web yesterday I found books that incorporate knitting in them. How much fun is that!! Combining my two favorite activities.

Many readers also love to knit. Combine the two hobbies in this collection of books in which at least one of the characters is a knitter.

Braun, Lillian Jackson - The Cat Who Saw Stars
Cahill, Mary - Carpool
Cannell, Dorothy - How to Murder the Man of Your Dreams
Churchill, Jill - Farewell to Yarns
Day, Marele - Lambs of God
Grafton, Sue - "A" is for Alibi
