Yarn Along, off kilter

We had an unexpected turn of events this past weekend that made for extensive car travel. Bad news for everyone involved, but good news for knitting progress. I had fussed at myself for starting this new project, Light and Up,  but it turned out well having something to keep my hands busy.

I also have a new book! I picked this up on a complete whim from the public library. I have only read the first two lines, but I like those, so it should be good and relaxing. Thistle and Twigg by Mary Saums is about two southern widows who meet and become the best of friends. But trouble is afoot! I'm looking forward to seeing how these two ladies' curiosities play out in this debut mystery (that must have been good because it is the first in a series).

I finished The Quickening and it was... okay. It ended ironically, I think. When I say "I think" I mean that not in an opinion kind of way but rather an "I'm not sure I knew what really happened kind of way." Again, if you like that kind of book, by all means, give it a whirl.

Joining Ginny and Frontier Dreams.

    Hopefully you get better news soon.

  2. Gorgeous yarn and pattern, sorry for the unexpected travel-I hope all is well.
