Erratic family circumstances have wound Cal Lavendar tighter than any tween should be. When The Knitting Lady becomes her foster parent, Cal is exposed to much new wisdom, including how handwork can soothe a troubled heart. The setting of this middle-grade novel isn't spelled out, but it's a town much like Santa Cruz.
