Knit Along with Debbie Macomber Fans of Debbie Macomber's Blossom Street books might not know that Leisure Arts publishes booklets of patterns that go along with the stories.

The latest book, Back on Blossom Street, was recently released, and Leisure Arts has released Knit Along with Debbie Macomber: Back on Blossom Street, a booklet with 12 patterns mostly focusing on prayer shawls. The book centers around a prayer shawl knitting class.

Fans of Macomber's books might also not know that she is a big supporter of charity knitting and a member of the board of directors of Warm Up America!, a charity that provides blankets made up of numerous individual blocks to people in need.

These pattern books are cute and provide good patterns, as well as another way for fans to get into the world of Blossom Street. But they also help people because Macomber donates all the proceeds to different charities.

This time around the charities that will benefit include Warm Up America, Project Linus and Guideposts Knit for Kids, three very worthy projects if you're looking for knitting charities.

I bought the knitting book Knit along with Debbie Macomber, Friendship Shawls. I am knitting the one called Because I Care and they ask for round knitting needle 29 inches and I am really having a hard time because it’s to short. Would you have a suggestion how to solve this problem. Thank you.

It can be pretty cumbersome to have lots of stitches on a too-small needle. My not very creative suggestion would be to try a needle with a longer cable :) or just exercise extreme patience in working with the short one.

I would like to ask a question about knitting. I would like to know how to attach a new skein of yarn to my work without haveing a knot tied to worse side. Can you e-mail me and tell me how to do this. Thank You very much.
