Like this lovely read - A Knitter's Home Companion. After hearing so many of you say how wonderful of a book it was, I requested it at the library and could not wait to get my hands on it. I went out yesterday morning to pick it up and immediately began reading through it and falling in love. The stories, the patterns, the recipes - what a great, little, book! I was instantly hooked, so much so, that I came home and ordered myself, as well as a friend, a copy! I especially like the review quote from the front of the book and find it very fitting - "This is a charming and utterly alluring book that makes you want to cook and knit and have a little chat about the kids." ~ Jane Smiley.
I'm also still reading Firefly Lane, but it is really slow going for me and I'm having a hard time getting pulled into it. I am about halfway through and will continue, because I do not like leaving a book unfinished, but I am really hoping it gets better, soon!
The Oaklet Shawl is coming along great! I am so excited that I am so close to be doing done! I will most likely finish this with plenty of time left to get started on another one for my mother-in-law for Mother's Day! And this yarn...oh my! It is just perfect! I only wish I would have bought more than one skein. Actually, because I only bought just the one skein, I am having to do the border in another color. This skein will only be enough for the body of the shawl. Thankfully my LYS had some gorgeous 100% Alpaca available which I found in a lovely cream color that I think will knit up into a lovely border! I don't ever mind an excuse to buy more yarn!
Linking up once again with Ginny!
