newest Yarn Retreat Mystery
It is very exciting to be writing two national bestselling mystery series, and even better that they are both
about yarn craft.
One of the bonuses about writing the Yarn Retreat Series is that it has inspired me to develop my knitting skills.
I love the idea of being bi-stitcheral. Now when I travel, I carry a set of knitting needles along with a selection
of crochet hooks and projects in both yarn crafts.
And now I have an even bigger excuse to add to my yarn stash!
So, what is a yarn retreat? Picture going off to a rustic and slightly creepy hotel and conference center
on the tip of California's Monterey Peninsula. Fog rolls in and waves crash against a rocky shore. A group
of yarn enthusiasts gather to spend a long weekend learning new things, getting to know new people and having
lots of time to work on yarn projects while curled up in front a cozy fireplace.
And then wouldn't you know, all that peace is marred by murder.
Just like the Crochet Series, there are dead bodies, but everybody has a good time. And all the books
include a pattern and a recipe for one of Casey's famous baked treats.
