Not everyone may be aware of the fact that knitting books exist. (And by this I refer to novels about knitters, not instructional texts.)
People who are aware of their existence may not be familiar with the Debbie Macomber series about the "Shop on Blossom Street". I believe there are now 5 of them.
People who are familiar with the series might not know that Debbie Macomber is from Port Orchard, WA and recently opened a yarn shop there of her own called A Good Yarn.
I was aware, familiar, and knew. (Or at least, I knew once Mom told me.)
Since I am up in WA this weekend for grad school residency, Mom and I made the not-at-all-out-of-the-way trip to visit said yarn shop.
It was delightful.
I bought stuff.
