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
It’s a chilly windy day here in Phoenix and to me, it’s perfect to start a few of my Thanksgiving preparations, such as pies and rolls. The house smells heavenly right now!
Today I’ve casted on A Spray of Lace designed by Paula Papoojian from the Lace One-Skein Wonders eBook that I recently purchased. For this scarf, I decided to use my lovely handpsun that I created last year (Freyalyn’s Fibres & Yarns Shetland and Silk) and decided to add a few beads, which will be placed in the middle of the scarf. I’m also still working on my Chateau and hope to have it finished by Sunday, fingers crossed.
As far as reading goes, I’m finishing up The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. This is an odd book to me and one that I’m not quite sure I like and will decide on my thoughts when I finish, which will be this evening.
“Reclusive author Vida Winter, famous for her collection of twelve enchanting stories, has spent the past six decades penning a series of alternate lives for herself. Now old and ailing, she is ready to reveal the truth about her extraordinary existence and the violent and tragic past she has kept secret for so long. Calling on Margaret Lea, a young biographer troubled by her own painful history, Vida disinters the life she meant to bury for good. Margaret is mesmerized by the author’s tale of gothic strangeness — featuring the beautiful and willful Isabelle, the feral twins Adeline and Emmeline, a ghost, a governess,a topiary garden and a devastating fire. Together, Margaret and Vida confront the ghosts that have haunted them while becoming, finally, transformed by the truth themselves.” ~ From Amazon.com
I also want to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. I have so much to be thankful for this year, and for me, Thanksgiving is a wonderful day to not only express how I feel, but to spend time with those I love, to reminisce and to make new memories.
From my home to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
