Good morning to all of you! I am so excited to participate this week in the yarn along because .....drumroll....I have a different book in the photo! I know, I know, you are all just shocked that I finally finished Rainbow Valley from the Anne series. It was good and I did read it a very very long time ago. The plot kept feeling vaguely familiar. The ending jarred my memory and when I finished it I thought "I read that before!!!"
So I am taking a break from the Anne series, I only have one more to read and my only version is on my ipod touch :( I am not in any real hurry to read the eighth book in the series anyways. My book, The Distant Hours is by Kate Morton who wrote The Forgotten Garden which I read earlier in the year and enjoyed it from beginning to end. So when I saw this book a month ago I had to buy it. I just started it so I cannot opine as of yet.
My knitting is also moving along. I blogged yesterday about my tea leaves cardigan which is finished!! Gosh I just love it and wish it was cold enough to wear it....and dry enough to wear it. Yesterday it was still slightly damp from blocking. I might just have to knit this pattern up again one day. It was such fun. In the photo above is my favorite Aunt's Christmas gift. I am on chart A and so far this is a really nice knitting project. The stockinette area was a bit tricky in keeping track of the increases. I could have used stitch markers but then that would have taken away the fun of chanting. Of course my dear husband loves to call out random numbers to see if I will mess up.....and yes I do !
I am looking forward to seeing what everyone is knitting and reading this week at Ginny's blog Small Things
