    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.
