after a few weeks absence, i'm joining yarn along again. i have been knitting and reading, only there was nothing new to share. i struggled through Three Junes. from a literary aspect, it is indeed an accomplished novel. but i personally found it so hard to like the characters, that was weird. i created sort of a distance to them which made it hard to finish the novel. i don't remember the last time something like that happened to me in reading.
i have now started When God Was a Rabbit, one of the books danielle left here for me. it's a story about siblings and i have read a few comments in this linkup already about how it is a quirky read, so i am hopeful that i will like the characters ;)
i have also finally almost finished the upsized puerperium, i just need to find some funky yellow buttons. as soon as they are on, i will share photos of it (on baby!)
now i really need to continue my badly neglected garden sweater. gardening seasons (not just on a balcony), are ahead of me... but this is a subject for another post. so i won't stress myself about not having finished it last fall, late summer will be fine as well.
i have a skein of this delicious lana grossa yarn left with which i had made my february hat. i am now thinking, another hat or maybe a cowl (though it might not be enough yardage for that). i have plenty of mitts but it might be nice to have some matching the hat? what do you think?
simona:i think for your february hat, sylvia, you could make a pretty pin of some sorts using that yarn to pin on your jacket. if you do have enough yarn then a cowl would be neat.
so before everybody else gets to say what they've been working on, i also have a few items to show you. i made a mug cozy for a little friend that does not like her chai tea mug too hot when it it freshly brewed. and the green scarf i was working on last week is completed, gladly i remembered to take pictures of both before i gave them away.
and do tell, what have you been knitting and reading?
