Because I love both knitting and reading I enjoy joining Ginny and others on a Yarn Along every Wednesdays. I’ve seen many beautiful hand knits and have added books to my ever growing book list by following all the Yarn Along links.
I’m knitting by a roaring fire today because it is snowing outside and I’m working on a RomiDesign, Teresa’s Vacation Scarf.
This is part of the 7 Small Shawls – Year Four: Friends series. The center part has a a simple lace pattern that is mostly stockinette but each end section has some beautiful lace which you can’t see. I’ll show you in a follow-up post. But today? Well, today is all about what book
I am reading.
Hot off the press is a new Flavia de Luce novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, Alan Bradley. This seventh book in the series has another clever name, As Chimney Sweepers Come to Dust and continues the outrageous sleuthing career of its precocious preteen leading lady, Flavia. This young chemist and aspiring detective retains her droll wit as she goes abroad to the boarding school her mother attended as a child. I’m halfway through the book and it is delightful.
So, what are you knitting/crocheting right now? Read any good books lately?
