Knit or Dye Trying (A Riverbank Knitting Mystery)

You’re just going to have to read, KNIT or DYE TRYING for yourself!

Business is booming for Libby Beckett and her fabulous Maryland shop, aptly named Y.A.R.N., but when a town festival brings a fatality with it, Libby gets all tangled up in murder.

As spring comes to Collinstown, the village launches a food festival to draw a new group of tourists. Libby, the proud owner of Y.A.R.N., has planned a yarn event to provide an alternative option to a foodie weekend. Artisan fiber dyer Julie Wilson—known for her work with animal-friendly, plant-based knitting fibers such as bamboo and hemp as well as her brilliant use of color—will hopefully draw a crowd with a special dyeing workshop.

The festival begins, but it draws more than crowds. First, a flock of sheep parades down the street, herded by farmers protesting Julie’s antiwool stance. Then Julie’s celebrity chef sister appears, and the siblings resume a long-standing rivalry. Despite all this, Julie’s workshop has sold out. Libby is thrilled, and they’re preparing for a full house. But the night before the event, Julie is found alone in the warehouse event space—dead. The witty “Watch Julie Wilson Dye” workshop title now has a terrible new meaning—and it’s up to Libby to catch a crafty killer.

“You’re behind this!” George accused me, still not bothering to say what “this” was. “You did this!”

Margo, who was sitting closer to the window, stood up and began walking toward the door. George was on her heels like an impatient tailgater on the DC Beltway. As she looked out my shopwindow, her expression of “there goes George again” changed immediately to startled disbelief.

“Um . . . Libby?”

As I got up from my chair, I began to notice the other people on the street I could see through the shopwindow. They were all staring in the direction of George’s pointing finger and Linda’s wide eyes.

I heard it before I saw it. A sound I knew, but couldn’t associate with Collin Avenue. It couldn’t be.

It was. A bleat.

A whole lot of bleating, in fact. And quite a few car horns. And shouting. As if a herd of . . .

By the time I reached the door, my brain tried to wrap itself around the sight that met my eyes.

For some inexplicable reason, a sizable herd of sheep was making its way down Collin Avenue.
