Two of my favorite 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 joined Wen’s IndieWay Yarns group KAL/CAL earlier this month and decided I better get my project started. So, I made another Zuzu’s Petals using IndieWay Yarns Best Worsted Superwash Merino in the color-way Grandma’s Quilt. I love Wen’s yarn as is wonderful to knit with and it’s squishy soft. I do have to say that one reason I love making Carina Spencer’s pattern for a second time is for the simplicity of the design and that I can finish it in a day !
As far as books, I’m currently reading Kate Pullinger’s The Mistress of Nothing, which is fictional novel based on Lady Duff Gordon’s journey to Egypt with her maid in the mid-19th century. In this novel, the maid, Sally, soon realizes that she has more freedom as her Lady’s maid in Egypt than she would ever have in England and she falls in love, a fore bidden love with an Egyptian servant. This has been a fast read and I only have a few chapters to go before starting my next book, The Third Gate by Lincoln Child.
