Knitting :: My Spring Boneyard shawl in Diamond Luxury Pima Lino Lace (colours light denim and nile). This is at the point where the rows are long enough to take forever… and I still have at least a few more stripes to go. On the bright side, I think we might finally be getting into spring! Winter seemed to last forever but it’s been above 0 here for a least a week straight, so perhaps we’ve made it?
Reading :: Cosmo by Spencer Gordon. I’m about 3/4 of the way through this and I honestly can’t decide what I think of it. Some of the humour is really dark, but some of the stories have made me laugh of loud. I’ll probably finish this tonight so I’ll let you know next week what my final thoughts are. On an unrelated note, I think that this is a really unattractive book cover.
I also finished Call the Midwife: a Memoir of Birth, Joy, and Hard Times by Jennifer Worth. The is the first in the trilogy of memoirs that the TV show (by the same name) is based on. Since I love the show, I thought I’d give the books a try.. and I loved this one!
I think I’m going to start House Girl by Tara Conklin next… have any of you read it?
Finally, a couple of housekeeping things today:
Firstly, the winner of the Craftsy class giveaway as chosen by Random.org is #22, Sollertia! Congratulations and enjoy! (Craftsy will be in touch with you with instructions to claim your prize).
