This was a story with deeply rooted friendships, and a close knit community of knitters. A little too many characters for my liking and sometimes hard to keep in order but still a very enjoyable mystery. Life at the Lambspun Knitters Shop starts falling apart when "Big Barb" as she is known she is a knitting teacher who's son becomes accused of murder....
Kelly Flynn is a accountant who has seemed to make her home office at the Lambspun Knitters in Fort Connor, Colorado. Life is good for everyone until knitting teacher, "Big Barb" life starts unraveling, She is a very over protective mother of her son, Tommy a doctor currently in his residency. A young woman who is a patient accuses him of assault and life for Barb takes a serious downturn, knitters at Lambspun become concerned for Barb when she is displaying strange behavior and serious depression when her son son becomes the main suspect when the woman was found murdered in her apartment.
Suspicions arise when this young woman, Laura Brewster also accused one of her professors of assault, being seen by another student. Kelly digs around to find out Laura had a knack for seeking revenge if she did not get what she wanted.Kelly is sure that Tommy could not be responsible for her murder. Being an accountant, with her love of numbers with her ability to solve puzzles and past murders, she's sure that she could stitch together the real clues as to who the killer could really be.
As a want to be knitter and for the seasoned knitter this is a perfect mystery.Descriptions of yarn and the fiber arts are beautifully stitched into the story even though I could not always understand the knitting lingo. Mother Mimi, owner of Lambspun Knitters and Burt, a retired police man are a lovely couple and are definitely make Purl up and Die worth reading. A cast of characters that were likeable but sometimes hard to keep straight but still very charming. Twists and turns make this a cleverly plotted mystery for knitting lovers.
