yarn along: making
I received the lovely first edition of the journal Making in the mail last week and eagerly cast on a Violet Cap for myself. It will be two colors instead of the single color called for, but I have two skeins of Fibre Company Canopy Fingering in such beautiful colors (one part of a skein left from my Sugared Violets shawl) that I decided to make the brim in the lavender and the body of the cap in the soft green. I continue to work on a Starshower cowl as well; it is a soothing knit, quite repetitive.
I finished The Boys in the Boat and loved it. It was so interesting; before reading it, I knew very little about the Berlin 1936 Olympics and now have had another view of history as Europe and the USA were going into WWII. Since then, I've enjoyed picking up The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge, and continuing to read The Chestnut King and For the Children's Sake.
Joining up with Yarn Along at Ginny's blog this morning. Have you ever read anything by Elizabeth Goudge? This is my second time to read a book by her and I think her writing style is so interesting.
