This beautiful cowl that doesn't have a ravelry page yet is nearly finished. It is very simple but also the colors of the yarn make it quite striking. I wish you all could see it in person. I cannot wait for fall to be here now so I could immediately wear it. I know, I am pushing the season, I can't help it. I noticed yesterday while daydreaming and staring outside that there are numerous leaves falling off the trees. I do believe that is a strong sign of a season change!!
I'm also knitting my pink cardi and posted about it wonderfulness yesterday as well as the pair of socks for my dad. Each are making progress and I'm enjoying the knitting. I have been knitting and catching up on all the podcasts that I have been saving over the summer. When the kids are home I tend to let the podcasts slide. But never the knitting.
Still reading The Flight of Gemma Hardy and am really enjoying it. I think you should read it if you do like Jane Erye. At first I was continually thinking "did this happen in the book" and many many events mirror poor Jane's life. After a fourth of the way through the book, I was thinking of Gemma as her own individual character and thinking less and less of Jane. Occasionally there is a scene or event that flirts with the classic book but there is enough original content that this book stands alone. I will definitely read more books written by Margot Livesey.
What are you knitting and reading?
