Yarning Along

This week I’ve knit some more of my garter stitch blanket and darned a few more ends of my Wave Blanket (not many, it’s a poor show I admit.) But since I’ve shown both of these many times I’ll refrain today. The baby was born on Friday so now I can tell you what I’ve been calling the wavey one for months now: it’s Winnie’s Wave Blanket. The new parents were so thoughtful to chose that name, weren’t they? It goes so well with her blanket. I always like a bit of alliteration.

My little pile of washcloths is slowly growing. I’ll do four and then might pause for a bit. I can’t wait to start a new crochet whatever, but need to just have the garter stitch blanket on the go. I dislike having multiple things semi-made; it muddles my head. So, get on and darn Rachel!

The Ballroom by Anna Hope looks like a lightweight historical novel doesn’t it? It’s not. I’m finding it grim and upsetting, but so well written I know I cannot leave it unfinished.

I picked up A Year of Marvellous Ways by Sarah Winman from the library the other day, as I’ve had the audio version for yonks now and thought it would be fun to listen to a chapter and read a chapter. I know you can buy both the audio and ebook which automatically sync, but there’s no way I’m buying two different versions of the same book! I love my local library.

  1. This week I’ve read The Fate of the Tearling, which is the final book in a trilogy and I thoroughly enjoyed it, could not stop reading and the ending actually surprised me.
    But I also read Beatrice and Benedick, which is supposed to be a prequel to Much Ado About Nothing. Much Ado is only my favourite Shakespeare evah, and I have to say I was 100% disappointed with B+B. It read like a bad fanfic crossed with LOOK HOW MANY SHAKESPEARE QUOTES I’VE MEMORISED!
    Just no.

    • They’re very good to use and make. I gave dishcloths out when I was new to crochet and people really used them. So much so that I had recurrent orders! They weren’t presents for birthdays or Christmas – that would be a bit mean!

      I enjoy the darning process but just need to settle down to do them with an audio book or podcast.

      Thanks for your link.

  3. Your ripple blanket looks very similar to mine I have on my lap today. You should make one for yourself. I’m reading a new book – “Before We Were Yours” by Lisa Wingate. A novel about a true story about orphans sold to wealthy families set in 1937. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

I'd love to hear from you...
