Knitting



I have not made a huge amount of progress on the knitting front this week, I have been busy sewing costumes for a party we are off to this afternoon.  So it has just been a little time in the evenings when watching programmes on iplayer.  I visited a yarn shop at the weekend and bought a beautiful skein of wool to knit a felted bowl for a friend as a present, just because I haven't got enough projects on the go already...

I have fit in some reading and finished Gossip from the Forest, I loved this book.  It was a wonderful mix of nature, history and imagination and a book that I am sure I will return to time and time again.  I have been reading some fairy tales to my youngest this week, many of which are mentioned in this book.  I have just started Consolation by Anna Gavalda which I have borrowed from the library.  I read a novella by her last year, Someone I Loved, which I really enjoyed so I thought I would try another book of hers.  I am only a few pages in so far and still want to continue reading which is a good sign.

 Joining in with Tami and Ginny for sharing all things yarny, head on over to see what others have been making.

  1. You sound busy, hope you share pictures of the costumes.
    I don't attempt to sew fancy dress outfits anymore, last time I did my eldest asked couldn't I just buy them like everyone else (that's how bad my sewing is, I think he was about 5 at the time!)
