Yarn Along

I’m joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along. I’m always making something and read at least a book a week (I also have two audio books on the go at the moment: Let’s Explore Diabetes with Owls by David Sedaris and Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan) and love to see what others are up to, so this is a perfect –along.

Spotting the Granny Chic book, written by bloggers Tif and Rachelle, at the library made me very happy. Even more so when I discovered they include a string bag pattern, that’s very good news for my current obsession.


Kate Morton’s The Secret Keeper begins on a Summer’s day in rural England, in the 1960s, where a picnicking family are celebrating a birthday. One of the daughters has slunk away to the tree-house to daydream. The seemingly idyllic story is shattered by a horrific incident, the reasons for which are explored in later life by the witness. The book shifts from the 1960s, back to the 1930s and to the present time, so far it’s very good; one of those stories I find hard to put down.

  1. The Secret Keeper sounds really good! I’ve read The House at Riverton and I really liked that so maybe I should add that to my to-read list :) Loving the latest string bag too

  2. Hmmm haven’t got hold of Sweet Tooth yet, but I have to pop out just now and think I might have to swing by the library :-) Justin Cartwright’s review is rather appealing. Thanks for this.

  3. Both books sound good and I like Kate Moreton novels. You have tempted me with your crochet bags I can’t wait to pick up my hook again x

  4. Your post reminded me that I want to read The Secret Keeper. I have to put that on my summer reading list. The Granny Chic book looks good too. I will have to look that up.

  5. Still wading my way through Clash of Kings but not read any for a couple of nights… Just too tired. I will make up for it in the holidays ;)

I'd love to hear from you...
