Yarn Along


Despite lovely hot temps  – 28oc here at the moment woohoo! – I’m crocheting a thick ribbed scarf for winter. It’s unseasonable but I know I’ll really feel the benefit when the weather changes. Please god it’s not next week. I’m not ready. Hanging out the washing and having it dry in an hour, or less, is fab and I love the way it smells. Plus I’m enjoying feeling warm to the bone, eating salads, homemade burgers, cool leafy evening strolls, G&Ts and Pimms. Oh dear, the spell check wants to amend that to pimps. I am not enjoying pimps, thank you very much.

I’m reading Everything and Nothing by Amarinta Hall (what a name) that I got from the library last Wednesday and have started a new audio book: The Cuckoo’s Calling by a new and aspiring author Robert Galbraith (ha ha! But why not, good for J.K.)

The Mollie Makes are going to be my dipping in and out reading for the next few days. I usually pounce on these as soon as they thud through the letterbox, but lately I’ve been a bit caught up browsing my haul of canal non-fiction.

I’m joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along again. What are you reading and crocheting/knitting this week?

  1. For a moment I thought you wrote 280…. Feels a bit like it today ;)
    Not reading or crocheting anything here… Too worn out. I will make up for it next week….HOLIDAYS!

  2. I heard a blurb on the news the other night about The Cuckoo’s Calling. I missed most of the post, but was to understand that it is extremely hard to find. Let us know what you think.

  3. At the beach knitting 2 different scarves, because as sure as the tide turns so will the weather. But scarves are quick and easy, not too cumbersome and perfect entertainment for the train journey.

  4. Lovely scarf and yarn – thanks for the book recommendations I am always looking out for a different author. Noticed your Mollie Makes in the background hope you will join in with my crafty Friday link up x

  5. That looks FAB RAchel – I agree, much better than the original swishy scarf (I just had a little look), I love its simplicity and I ADORE that yarn (I was going to ask you what it was, but found it when I checked out the swishy scarf!)
    Em xx

I'd love to hear from you...
