Review: Murder at Morningside

Murder at Morningside Murder at Morningside by Sandra Bretting
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

By Sandra Bretting
This is a new author to me. The setting of the book takes place in Louisiana and comes with all the southern charm you come to expect from the south. I loved the old sayings she use like “Lorda mercy” I haven’t heard that one since I was a child.

I love her writing style like “It seems the girl and her fiancĂ© must have eaten supper before they said grace” descripts a babt bump under her top. And “Terrible shame. Yellow caution tape dressed the bathroom door like a satin sash on a prom queen’s dress”. And this one “Why, Missy, you look prettier than a pat of butter on a stack of wheat cakes.” And on and on it goes.

I loved the story, characters. This is first in a new series.

The Beaded Rib Stitch



Right Side                                                                                                                           Back side

I liked the looks of this stitch so much, I've put the back up also. Either side would be good for ribbing.

Multiple of 5 + 2.

Row 1: *P 2, k 1, P 1, k 1 *, repeat from * to * across row, end p 2.

Row 2:  K 2, * p 3, k 2*, repeat from * to * across row.

Repeat rows 1 and 2 for pattern until desired length.  You could use this stitch for ribbing, but you could also use it for a baby blanket, just add an edging.
