I have three projects on the needles right now, while I have thought about casting on yet another one, I have decided I need to work on these first. I have made good progress on my Misty Pearl vest. The front panels are now resting on stitch holders while I work on the back and I really like the modifications I have made, and will be making.
I really love how my Shallows scarf is looking. I haven’t worked on it as much as I have wanted to, but I can honestly say I really am enjoying knitting with linen and Bonnie’s pattern is a dream to follow.
The last project I have on the needles is a pair of socks, Feather the Waves Socks using my lovely skein of Black Trillium Lilt sock yarn in the color Mist. The pattern is really easy to follow and memorize, and the yarn is pure joy to knit with. I haven’t worked too much on my first sock, but thought I would share a photo of what the design looks like.
I also finished reading The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton. I really enjoyed this book and found it to be a quick read. The book does jump between three points in time, but it is easy to follow and brings clarity to the story.
A tiny girl is abandoned on a ship headed for Australia in 1913. She arrives completely alone with nothing but a small suitcase containing a few clothes and a single book—a beautiful volume of fairy tales. She is taken in by the dockmaster and his wife and raised as their own. On her twenty-first birthday, they tell her the truth, and with her sense of self shattered and very little to go on, “Nell” sets out to trace her real identity. Her quest leads her to Blackhurst Manor on the Cornish coast and the secrets of the doomed Mountrachet family. But it is not until her granddaughter, Cassandra, takes up the search after Nell’s death that all the pieces of the puzzle are assembled. A spellbinding tale of mystery and self-discovery, The Forgotten Garden will take hold of your imagination and never let go. ~ Amazon.com
