As time passed Lydia's shop became more popular. She worked hard at keeping a wide variety of yarn types and colors. And her classes have been a success, too. The latest class has attracted another mismatched group. Elise retired with dreams for an enjoyable time of travel and life in a new home. Only to find the money she put on that dream home disappeared. Bethanne began a lovely Valentine's day happily married. Then her husband told her he was leaving her for another woman. Courtney's mother died several years ago and now her dad is going to work in Brazil. So she is stuck living in Seattle with her grandmother for a year. And now they all signed up to learn to knit socks. That first lesson left Lydia wondering how this group was ever going to gel. The tension was palpable among these very tense females.
As Lydia had found knitting helpful, so did Elise, Bethanne and Courtney. Their life stories seemed to be unravelled but in time they each found themselves and one another while knitting socks.
