Potluck Yarn is a book new trilogy by Cheryl Potter combining fantasy with fiber.

Twenty years have passed since the fire beneath the great dyepot was lit and the circle was complete. Now, the folk of the Middlelands face a danger worse than any can remember.
Darkness and chaos threaten to destroy the delicate balance of the natural world, and the magic of the dye crystals that have always been a way of life, and a great source of power for the people, has been outlawed.

"Yarns of the Knitting Witches creates a whole world of mythology with knitting and it accouterments at its center. Of course we who are devotees of this craft already believe that it can save a world that is rushing toward disaster, but it took Cheryl to embody that faith in this highly ambitious undertaking.
The Broken Circle, first book in the trilogy, is a good read with a fast moving plot rolling smoothly through a rich and varied landscape. Its knitted accessories detailed in the accompanying pattern book, should give ample inspiration, especially to those who have yet to become knitters.
I think the combo is a great idea and you definitely want the patterns separate because of the nature of patterns. Culinary mysteries can include recipes, but knitting patterns are more demanding."
