Yarn Along


For knitting this week, I finished my shawl and blogged about it here.  I am so thrilled with how it turned out.  I am still working on my wurm hat it, should be done in a day or two.  It is a really easy pattern and it is great to work on while watching TV or talking.  I bought a generous amount of yardage so I could have the full slouch effect from the pattern.  The yarn on the right is madelinetosh merino light.  I am thinking of a triangle shawl but not sure which one as of yet.  So today I will enter the endless sea of patterns on Ravelry and stalk the ideas :)  Of course, while I am reading everyone's blogs for the Yarn Along!

I have maybe ten pages to go on Rebecca--I know that it has taken me forever to read this book.  It will be finished today, promise.  I am glad that I've re-read it.  I must say that I continue to be a tiny bit disappointed in the heroine's lack of a back bone but it was written generations ago.  Maybe women with backbones was not the "in" thing.  However, the mystery and the creepy mood of the book is wonderful.  You tend to suspect every character in the book-fantastic!

  15. ooh, i'm thinking of knitting a triangle shawl as well, can't wait to see which one you will choose. i was thinking of the Rae.

    i have such a problem with heroines lacking backbone too. i dislike that a lot in older movies as well.
    i read "The forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton a couple of months ago.

  24. That's very much the case with a lot of older books. Jane Austen always seems to infuriate me. Your hat looks cute!

  25. Love your hat - I think I need more hats. I will be doing a small shawl for my next project, but it will take me weeks - maybe months to finish. Looks like an interesting read you have lined up. xx

  30. Lovely colour. I've just read Rebecca too. I kept willing her to actually ask some questions of her new husband! Very frustrating but still a great read.
