I am sure the first thing you noticed is that I am reading a different book. Yes, I finished The House at Riverton and once again Morton wrote a brilliant novel. It was even her first novel. She has a talent of weaving a tale and carrying the reader along with interest. What sets her apart is she has some incredible twist to the story line and the ending leaves you shocked, sad and blown away. Yep. It's a good book.
I started to read Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and it's too early to tell whether I like it or not. So stay tuned in for next week's yarn along. I'm confident I'll still be reading the book since I read at a snail's pace.
My cowl is complete and I'm thrilled with the results. It's my own design and if you like, you can print out the pattern from my blog. I'm continuing to love and savor the destiny shawl. The pattern is so much fun to knit---and it's garter stitch! Who knew different colors of garter stitch could be so entertaining? On the left is some left over Ultra Alpaca that I've cast on for a hat. I know I don't have enough yarn so I'll be striping with another yarn. I'm thinking another purple right now but I might change my mind.
So far this spring season is a little crazy. We turned the AC on last night. I was just too hot and today it's supposed to be almost 80 degrees!
