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
This week I casted on the Lyme Regis Scarf by Kirsti Johanson using my stash of River’s Edge handspun . This pattern is very easy to memorize and I think will end up going fast for me. I truly love the colors of my handspun and have to say it really is soft and wonderful to knit with. I foresee more spinning of merino/bamboo blends in the future!
Deep in a nearly impassable swamp south of the Egyptian border, an archaeological team is searching for the burial chamber of King Narmer, the fabled pharaoh. Narmer’s crown might be buried with him: the elusive “double” crown of the two Egypts. Amid the nightmarish, disorienting tangle of mud and dead vegetation, strange things begin to happen. Could an ancient curse be responsible? Jeremy Logan, history professor and master interpreter of bizarre and inexplicable enigmas, is brought onto the project to investigate. What he finds raises fresh questions . . . and immediate alarm. ~ From Amazon.com
As far as reading goes, I finished reading Kate Pullinger’s The Mistress of Nothing and started The Third Gate by Lincoln Child. So far I’m enjoying this book and it rather reminds me a bit of Indiana Jones mixed with Robert Langdon (DaVinci Code). In other words, a fun adventure with mystery!
So, what have you been working on ? How about books, what’s new and what’s finished?
