i finished The Distant Hours by Kate Morton last week, and i liked it, even though i prefer The Forgotten Garden. there were a few inconsistencies in the concluding chapters that irked me a bit, but all in all i fell for the english countryside, cups of tea and tragic love story. i want to read The House at Riverton next.
now i started Mr Penumbra's 24-hour Bookstore by Robin Sloan. i'm just into the first pages so i will share more about how i like it next week.
the Emma Tunic is making progress, i am just about to devide the front and back. i started a new knit as well, The Age of Brass and Steam, which i simply call "steamy" in a delicious Malabrigo Arroyo yarn... it's a knitalong with Rachel of house full of jays. it's not the most favourite pattern i've ever knit, i admit, but maybe i have to warm up to it (not so fond of the YO, but without them, well, it wouldn't be a "steamy"). in any case, i am looking forward to wrapping the soft kerchief with it's wonderful green shades around my neck!
joining ginny again today. what are you knitting and reading??
