Yarn Along 

  I’ve just started this audio book: A Gathering Storm by Rachel Hore. It’s one of my favourite kinds of stories; a family mystery, an old English Manor House and a picturesque Cornish seaside town. As well as crocheting to audio books I also love walking while listening. This morning I strode along in the lovely bright sunshine listening to the first few chapters. It’s a very promising start. I haven’t read anything by this author before and hopefully I’ll enjoy this book. I see she’s had quite a few books published; it’s good to find someone you like and read their back catalogue. 

Can you see that this baby hexagon piece is finally beginning to look rectangular? It’s proper fiddly and slow crochet. I’d definitely like to make hexagons again, but I won’t be joining them as I go again. I want the sides to lie neatly together, the way these look are still making me feel irritated. Larger hexies would make a more drapey fabric too.

My last audio book Career of Evil by Robert Galbraith (very good, I recommend it) has occupied me for lots of my crochet time recently. Near the end when the final twist was revealed I dropped yarn and hook and punched the air. I knew it! I knew. Kind of anyway…

I’m joining in with Ginny’s Yarn Along again.

  1. I read The Dream House by Rachel Hore, it’s the best book I’ve read in ages. Hope you enjoy A Gathering Story as much.

    And I love your baby hex’s. Colours are fab, am I right in thinking it’s Stylecraft?

  2. I love your hexy blanket. I am working on a granny stripe blanket right now, but I think I would like to make a hexy blanket. I will take your advise though and make them larger and not put them together as I go. I think it’s beautiful though.
    I enjoy those types of stories you are reading. I’m going to see if I can get it at our library.
    I found you through the yarn along!
