  • Heartwarming, poignant story

    Delilah (Dee) gave her heart and soul to her high-powered city job. During a crucial meeting, she received a text from her brother Julian (JP) telling her to ‘come’. Rushing off she headed to the family home in the village of Fenwild, where she discovered her brother with two broken wrists. JP is a knitting expert, who runs the local haberdashery, co-owned by Dee and himself. He is also a Blogger/Vlogger too at ‘About a (Knitting) Boy’. When Dee bumped into an old friend, who had just had a premature baby, JP would of loved to of made her something. He did have an idea though, ask his followers to knit her some premature baby hats instead. The idea took off and a knitathon for premature babies came to life. On her return to work Dee gets fired. Needing a job desperately she phoned numerous friends and agencies, but no-one wanted anything to do with her. False rumours had been circulated and she was certain she knew who the culprit was, ex-colleague Ben. Is he really to blame though? I’m not into crafting, I learnt to knit when I was a teenager and there are a few booties around in our family made by my fair hands, but that is as good as it ever got. The idea of a group of people coming together and helping to make hats for premature babies is beautiful, and I bet that there are people up and down the country who do that very same thing. The book is more than just about knitting though. There are numerous secondary plots running through the story too, all captivating and worked seamlessly alongside one another. The characters are all relatable. None are perfect, each had their own voice, and for me this made them very realistic. The book was an utter joy to read, one I could just switch off from the real world and settle into a world where knitting was king. I was held to the pages of this heartwarming story. Not only is it a beautiful read, but it is poignant too. I’m glad that Dee finally understood that there is more to life than just work.

  • funny and witty book

    I thought this book was great I loved the humor throughout. I was enchanted by the story and loved the depth of the characters. I enjoyed the twists in the tale and the joy of reading about a family run business. I thought it was great that they included men who were knitters and the fact they bring the whole community together. I listened to the audio book and found that the narrator brought the humor in the book to life. This is a brilliant book for those who love a heartwarming tale that you can connect with added romance.I also loved the bonus section at the end explaining how to knit your own baby hat was brilliant. Plus with this book I got to learn about a subject I know very little about. Don't you just love it when you learn from a fiction book. I would like to thank the author and publishing team for bringing us a witty and funny tale, that can bring together a community of all ages, maybe even men to knitting.

    Thanks for your feedback!
