yarn along wednesday


Brown and grey – my favourite, but they are really boring to photograph…… Umaro has grown another repeat, I love this blanket so much that I suspect the instant I give it to my mother I will cast on another for myself. Dad’s scarf is also growing – I’m a ball and a half in and I think it might be nearing the halfway mark. Hard to tell until I try it on John who is about the same height. Scarves always seem like a good and easy idea until I remember how blooming long they are……..

I have not had much time for reading but am still enjoying the Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet and have begun reading War and Peace as my classic now that I’ve finished Jane Eyre. It’s a bit of a slog as I’m struggling with ALL OF THE DIFFERENT RUSSIAN NAMES – for the love of……… With a bit of a freebie online chapter guide though, I’m finding that I’m getting involved with the snapshots of their lives so far – I’m only 100 pages in, but pleased to finally be tackling this monster as it’s been on my list for a long time.

    What a gorgeous texture on your knits! Your comment on “War and Peace” made me laugh 🙂 Originally I am from Russia and it’s my favorite book, but all my English speaking friends are horrified with the amount of Russian names in this book. One of my friends even drew a family tree to keep track of all the characters 🙂

    your knits are beautiful! think everyone will love their gifts
    i personally am a little fearful of long scarves, when i was little i saw one get caught in a car door, frightening when you see the person running along side trying to free themselves. then there’s all the sill tv versions of it also, but they are wonderful to knit, made my daughter one which she just loves to bits (her ends she keeps tucked inside her coat)
    can’t wait to see those finished, love the patterns
    thanx for sharing
