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
On the needles in pink is the Game of Thrones Mystery KAL, which I am currently working on clue 2. This particular clue adds short rows which has a few of us wondering if this is going to turn into some type of hood. So far I’m loving it. On the needles in blue is my Capriole mystery shawl KAL and I hope to work on clue 2 soon as the third clue is coming out this week – yikes, I’m behind! The one skein of Sheepish in black is for a third hat that I will be casting on for this evening and have decided to knit the Button-Tab Hat by Marcie Nishioka. I’ve made this hat several times for friends and it’s super easy, and super quick.
This weekend I finished The Alchemist’s Daughter by Katharine McMahon. I have to say it was a very book with a lot of mystery surrounding the daughter, and main character, Emelie. The first few chapters were about experiments that Emelie and her father conducted using the art of Alchemy but after that, it turned into more of a romantic entanglement. All in all, a good book.
At the end of a long and useful life, Penelope Keeling’s prized possession is The Shell Seekers, painted by her father, and symbolizing her unconventional life, from bohemian childhood to wartime romance. When her grown children learn their grandfather’s work is now worth a fortune, each has an idea as to what Penelope should do. But as she recalls the passions, tragedies, and secrets of her life, she knows there is only one answer…and it lies in her heart. ~ Amazon.com
I’m now reading one of my all time favorite book, The Shell Seekers by Rosamunder Pilcher. For those of you who are not familiar with this author, I would like to note that all of her books are wonderfully written, including her short works. I’ve read this particular novel many times and re-reading it is like coming home to a warm cozy fire on a cold winter day. Yes, it’s that kind of novel to me.
What are you currently reading or listening too?
Any WIPs on the needles ?
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
