Two of my favourite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? ~ Ginny from Small Things
I finished my top-down cardi this past week and I love it! It inspired me to try another top-down, so I’ve casted on Vodka Lemonade by Thea Colman of Baby Cocktails. I’m using my stash of Madelinetosh sport weight in the colorway Badlands and I love the look so far. I haven’t gotten very far on this project, but at least you can see a bit of what I’ve done so far.
Sunday I finished reading Heather Barbieri’s The Lace Makers of Glenmara . To me this book was very enjoyable and a relaxing book to read, refreshing maybe a good choice of words for what I thought of it too. I have started to read Dragonfly in Amber by Diana Gabaldon , which I’ve read many years ago and wanted to re-read. I love this series and if you haven’t read any of Diana’s books, I do recommend reading them.
I like to read more than one book at a time and truly enjoy reading Elizabethan books (anything to do with Queen Elizabeth and the Tudors). I have chosen to also read the Poyson Garden by Karen Harper. This series is brand new to me and I happened upon book one in my local thrift shop and it looked interesting. Chapter one has hooked me and I think I’m going to enjoy this book immensely and I’ve had the fortune to find the other 8 books of this series that I’m looking forward to reading very soon!
