Accountant Kelly Flynn (Knit to Be Tied, 2016, etc.) knits a baby hat while awaiting the arrival of her first child.
Pregnancy brings a host of changes for Kelly. Instead of her usual strong black coffee, her friend Jennifer Stroud brings her cups of matcha green tea from Pete’s Porch Café. Too round to swing a bat, she watches from the stands as Pete’s niece plays softball. Her friends think she should marry her boyfriend, Steve Townsend, so she does. While she’s not working on the accounts of her two remaining clients, Kelly sits in a comfy armchair in the House of Lambspun, Mimi Shafer’s knitting shop, working soft blue cotton yarn into a hat for Baby Jack. That’s where she hears newcomer Geraldine tell the grisly details of a murder on a nearby golf course. It seems that golf pro Giselle Armstrong was found murdered on the links. Giselle had stolen sports equipment entrepreneur William Callahan away from his first wife, Meredith, who killed herself in despair. Eventually, Baby Jack arrives. Even later, the murderer is unmasked. And Jack gets to wear that blue hat.
