A lovely gift from a mystery reader


The attached photo is of me wearing a lovely scarf hand-knitted by the talented Molly Weston. It's my favorite color (a typical Leo, I love purple), and Molly tells me that the yarn is made from bamboo. Molly is very active in the mystery community, reviewing mystery books and blogging about the mystery community at Meritorious Mysteries and serving as an author escort in her hometown. Her knitted works of art are highly coveted and appreciated by mystery authors. Thanks, Molly!

That is a beautiful scarf. It looks lovely on you. I am a Sagittarius, and I love purple, too. Molly is very talented. You are very lucky, Beth.

It's a beauty. Molly is a peach.
I didn't get a scarf but, I was very happy with my tour of the Daylily Farm. That was a real treat during a very busy week.
Cheers!

That is so cool. I did not know yarn could be made from bamboo. Wonder how it is spun? I'll have to ask my friend who spins if she has ever heard of it.

Purple is my daughter's favorite coor, but she is a cancer.

What a lovely color. And bamboo yarn! That's fascinating. Not even sure what I am but I love purple.
