Joining Ginny this morning with all the other bookworms on a YARN ALONG…..
I am about half-way through Edith Wharton’s Age of Innocence and hope to give you a review next week but today I want to ask you a question. The main character in my book is caught up in following the etiquette of his time. Social norms are challenged when his fiancé ‘s European cousin appears on the scene with European notions.
I started thinking about some of our current day customs like, appropriate for this time of year, the giving of hostess gifts when we go to someone’s house for dinner or a party or maybe for an extended visit. So, my question to you is what is the most thoughtful hostess gift you’ve ever received?
Knitting? Well, it is the season of gift giving and I am in the midst of it knitting away. Here is a peek at the yarn that I will be looking at and sliding through my fingers over the next few weeks. Cashmere – yummy!
