“For crying out loud! I can’t even cast on now.“
Claire has never unravelled anything before, being a confident knitter. But now, to her dismay, everything she creates is a disaster, riddled with dropped stitches and glaring holes. It’s almost as if her hands have a mind of their own. Maybe it’s because her longest relationship to date has just ended, or perhaps it has something to do with the fact her career is on the ropes.
“Don’t get frustrated with your needles! The problem lies with the knitter, not the knitting,” said Adrian, owner of Oddballs wool shop. Following his advice, in the desperate hope it will cure her woolly woes, Claire begins to turn her life around. Her grand plan involves FishTank, the online dating site. She convinces Adrian that if they sign up and find love, their problems will be solved (and she’ll have at least one area of her life sorted!). The trouble starts when he has far more luck in the romance department than she does.
But it’s little wonder Claire can’t throw herself into dating. She’s already found her perfect match.
A must-read for avid knitters and those with a passion for crafting, this comical yarn will melt any reader’s heart.
Will they? Won’t they? Romance enthusiasts will be rooting for the pair to be knitted together, forever!

A rom-com with needles and yarn!
I can’t knit to save my life but it brings Claire and Adrian together, and introduces her to the Stitch & Bitches too.
This is the story of what to do when The One turns out to be a zero and everything seems to be falling apart. Including your knitting.
A really fun, enjoyable read with a happy ending, something I really need sometimes.
