Blossom Street Collection Book 1 from Leisure Arts

My two great hobby loves are books and yarn arts and I do so love when they come together. Often when I find a fiction book that has a yarn art theme, I will find one or two patterns at the end of the book and occasionally a recipe. Imagine my surprise when I was browsing Leisure Arts and found that they have pattern books, whole books, from the Blossom Street Series by Debbie Macomber!

I instantly had to get my hands on Blossom Street Collection Book 1. One thing I really love is that all of the proceeds from both the Blossom Street pattern books and the Blossom Street Yarn Collection go to helping children all over the world. 

There is something for everyone in this collection with nine patterns ranging from easy to experienced, and from pullovers to tote bags! Plus, it has both knitting and crochet patterns so if you are able to both, it is a real treat! But if you only do one or the other, there is enough unique and lovely patterns in each skill that you won’t be disappointed!

These patterns are easy to follow and there are great pictures as well. I am personally in love with the cover vest, the lace and cables vest. Of course, I would be! You know I have a weak spot for textures and cables. Have you read the Blossom Street Series? Have you ever made any patterns from the back of fiction books?

Take some time to browse Leisure Arts' great selection and make sure you also connect with Leisure Arts on Facebook and Twitter so that you never miss a special or new pattern! Also, if you sign up for their knitting or crochet newsletters, you get a free pattern on Fridays!

Disclosure: I may receive products in exchange for an honest review. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I personally believe will be good for my readers.
