It's been so long since I have participated in a yarn along over at Small Things but I have really missed it. I have been knitting, though, as you can see. This is Jared Flood's "Guernsey Wrap" and I love it! I am doing it in Cascade Eco and the colour is lovely, if I do say so myself. It's been a great deal of chart reading until I got the hang of the pattern and I won't miss that part when it is done but I am loving the feel and the pattern. I have about 25 rows left to go and I can't wait!
In terms of reading, I am sort of in between books right now. First, there's "The Shadow Queen" by Rebecca Dean and I just picked it up off the new books shelf at the library. It's not bad but I am still not sure about it. I'm slowly wending my way through the first of Madeleine L'Engle's four volume set The Crosswicks Journals and I am adoring it in small doses. I feel like she is a personal friend and I felt quite a sense of grief when I realised that she had died back in the 90's. Finally, I am browsing my way through The Gentle Art of Domesticity by Jane Brocket. This is a home addicts' dream... crafting, colour and home keeping on a new level. I love this book! I have become addicted to Louise Penny's Three Pines mysteries and at the moment, I am waiting for the next book to come in at the library.
Happy reading and stitching!
