I’m lucky to know Cathy and the full story behind this scarf for her daughter-in-law. I was so happy to hear a happy ending. Here’s Cathy’s craft and a little bit about her as a reader.

Cathy and her knitted circle scarf – #fanfun

The one I sent to my daughter in law was the second one I made. The first one was not exactly made right. It was my first try. Not my first try at crochet but at that pattern. It had been years since I made anything. I copied my mom and made a covered coat hanger and found out how much work she put into all those hangers she gave as gifts over the years. I had to hunt on the Internet for the pattern for that. I only made one. I have a friend who still uses hers.

Reading was my escape. In the fourth grade I started wearing glasses and kids teased me. I started becoming friends with books. I would go to the library and get as many books as they would allow, read and take them back and repeat. My mom could call me and I would actually not hear her as I was lost in the world of a book. I recall a book about a woman who survived a plane crash in a snowy wooded area and “I” was actually cold. Being lost in a book is a real thing. Its one reason I don’t take a book to some appointments as I would never hear them call me.

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.
