Yarn to Go - (Yarn Retreat Mysteries) by Betty Hechtman (Paperback)
THE FIRST YARN RETREAT MYSTERY!
Dessert chef Casey Feldstein doesn't know a knitting needle from a crochet hook. But after her aunt dies unexpectedly, leaving Casey to run her yarn retreat business, the sweets baker finds herself rising to the occasion--and trying to unravel a murder mystery...
When Casey finds out that her late aunt's business, Yarn2Go, has one more yarn retreat scheduled, she decides to go ahead and host the event, despite her complete lack of experience as a knitter. At least the retreat is on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula.
But the idyllic setting is soured when a retreat regular is found murdered in her hotel room. Feeling a sense of responsibility, Casey begins to weave the clues together and detects a pattern which may shed light on her aunt's suspicious death. Despite the danger, the last thing Casey plans to do is retreat. She'll catch this killer...or dye trying.
Includes a knitting pattern and a recipe!

Popularity of knitting soars as 38 million Americans now embrace the timeless trend
NEW YORK, Aug. 19, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In the face of pandemic stress, remote working, and stay-at-home activities, knitting and crocheting kept millions of Americans occupied during the past year. Although knitting is regarded as a stress-reliever - a key element of its broad appeal - frequent tangles are common hurdles to starting and finishing projects. The innovative O'GO™ format of select Red Heart®, Bernat®, and Caron® yarns removes the pain points from knitting so that everyone, from beginners to seasoned stitchers, can find relief from cabin fever, and get "untangled" from daily stresses.
"The patent pending technology of O'GO helps knitters transform their journey from stressful starts and stops to one that is smooth and tangle-free," said Lise Snelgrove, Director of Marketing at Yarnspirations.com. "As more Americans double down on crafting, millions of people turn to knitting as a source of therapeutic relaxation and DIY gifting. The O'GO format enables them to keep this tradition going, while giving new knitters the chance to unleash their creativity with a promise of a quick-start and faster finish."
Equally embraced by Millennials, Gen Xers, and Baby Boomers alike, stitching is now popular in every region of the country. Over 20% of stitchers are newcomers to knitting and crocheting since the COVID lockdown began in 2020. One third to one half of knitters are self-described "beginners," and will reap the benefits from the tangle-free experience O'GO provides by helping to expedite the pace of projects. The past year has brought greater emphasis on community engagement and acts of kindness and charity. Consumers' favorite yarns in the O'GO format provide an opportunity for knitters of all skill levels to continue the trend of handmade, heartfelt giving.
Red Heart®, Bernat® and Caron® yarns in the O'GO format, in an assortment of colors, are now available in-stores at JOANN, Michaels and Walmart, and online at Amazon and at Yarnspirations.com. Red Heart Super Saver in O'GO is 100% basic acrylic; Bernat® Blanket in O'GO is 100% polyester; Caron® Colorama in O'GO is 100% premium acrylic; Caron® Big Donut in O'GO is 100% premium acrylic. O'GO yarn products are not treated or dyed with any epoxy or varnish compounds, urea formaldehyde resin or disperse blues. All of the materials used to manufacture O'GO yarns are OEKO-TEX Standard certified.

Introducing O’Go Yarn!
There’s a brand new yarn hitting shelves today! Introducing O’Go! After years of tangles, the revolutionary new yarn is finally here. O’Go is a new yarn format the is tangle-free and quick start. No more searching for the starting strand or dealing with yarn barf. Just O’Go and Go! You can find it in your favorite brands: Bernat, Red Heart, and Caron. I have all the details below!
The evolution of yarn:
Now we have the O’Go!
Here is the yarn overview:
The yarn is NOT replacing the ball/skein you are used to purchase. Also, it has the exact same yardage/ounces as the skein of the same yarn! The benefits are that it’s in a new tangle-free quick start format and you have the color play option!
How does O’Go work?
When you take it out of the packaging, it looks like a ring. Find the where the two ends meet and snip the plastic fastener. Pull the fastener string out and the start stitching as you pull from the outer end! Easy-peasy and tangle free!
The Red Heart Super Saver O’Go comes in both solid and self-striping. You can let it color stripe (no knots in the color changes!) or you can color play. Easily separate the colors by pulling apart where each color meets in the O’Go. Then you can cut and separate and use as you’d like. For instance, the rainbow color O’Go would be great to use for a Unicorn or Rainbow project. You wouldn’t have to buy multiple skeins.
How do you store O’Go? If you have just started your project and want to set it in your project tote, lay it in there with the working side pointed upward. It won’t collapse or come apart. If you want to put it away for later and/or have separated the colors, you can try storing it in a ziplock bag.
The packaging was made with retailers in mind. It can sit upright on shelves or it can be hung on a peg. For at home storage of your O’Go’s you have lots of options! I say stack them! Check out THIS storage solution video from The Crochet Crowd.
Where can I buy O’Go?All of the O’Go yarn styles and colors can be purchased HERE on Yarnspirations.com!
Check out this chart for Retailer Availability:
How much does O’Go Cost? Right now they range from $5 to $12 depending on if you are purchasing the Red Heart or the Bernat Blanket but keep in mind that retailers set their own pricing and sales! Keep checking all the sites and Yarnspirations.com for future price adjustments.

100+ O’Go Yarn Patterns: Free, Knit and Crochet Patterns Using New Tangle-Free Yarn
Earlier this week I was thrilled to share my review of the new yarn O’Go with you. This is a totally new format of yarn delivery, available for four different popular yarn types. Each of the yarns comes in lots of different colorways. And now Yarnspirations has rounded up more than 100 O’Go Yarn patterns for you to use. There are both knit and crochet patterns for each yarn in different skill levels. There’s a project for everyone. We’ve broken down these categories below with easy links to each section that might interest you. Plus, we’ve shared some of our favorite patterns from the collection.
Quick Recap On O’Go Yarn
O’Go isn’t a brand new yarn. Instead, it’s a new format of delivery for some of your favorite yarns. Some yarn comes in balls, others in skeins … now you also have the option of O’Go. It’s a super smooth approach to easily getting the yarn from where it’s start onto your hooks or needles. Plus it offers convenience when playing with the different colors within the same O’Go. Again, check out my full review here; scroll down on that post to see the YouTube video showcasing what I’m loving about it.
Four Yarn Options for O’Go Yarn Patterns
There are currently four different O’Go yarns:
Click on any of those to see the patterns associated with each one. If you have a preferred option among these yarns, then this is a terrific way to sort for patterns. Or, of course, if you’ve already purchased one or two of these yarns, then that’s another reason to filter the patterns in this way.
Here’s one example of O’Go Yarn patterns we like from each of the four options:
1. Bernat Blanket
2. Caron Big Donut
3. Caron Colorama
4. Red Heart Super Saver
Different Types of O’Go Yarn Patterns
In addition to sorting by the yarn itself, you can use the filter options on the O’Go Yarn Patterns page (HERE) to find specific types of project. For example, here you’ll find one Marly Bird team favorite from each of the three options in “pattern category”.

O’Go Yarn Patterns by Craft and Skill Type

For the first time, as a man sexually, she looked at her father when, one night, she woke up and looked into her parents' bedroom out of curiosity. After many years, she still very vividly remembered the sensations that she experienced from what she saw that night. Mom was on all fours at the very edge. Of the double bed and, squeezing the bedspreads, barely restraining the screams, taking in her father.
The father was red as cancer.

This group did not have much imagination, but it had undeniable authority in the yard and at school. Perhaps this is the only reason why I now sit with them in this pissed arbor and play cards, instead of playing. The console at home. The thing is that Sanka and I, my classmate, decided to pull off a small scam, and the patronage of these guys, in case of failure, would.
