Author Visit: The Heartbreaks & Triumphs of a Long Distance Knitter

Signing/Readings

In Skein: The Heartbreaks & Triumphs of a Long Distance Knitter, author Christen Mattix recounts how she stumbled upon an unusual way of meeting her Fairhaven neighbors when she decided to knit a half-mile blue rope from a public bench to Bellingham Bay. During those three and a half years of knitting at the bench, Mattix meets her loveable and quirky neighbors, visits a Trappist Monastery, falls in love, and transforms from introverted artist to a catalyst for community connections.
