Knitting this Week

6:00 AM

First, I would like to thank everyone for their kind words about my good friend Bob.  It means a great deal to me.

Second, on to the weekly yarn along.  I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share our yarn projects and the books we've been reading.  I have been working like a crazy woman the last couple of weeks so I don't really have a whole lot of knitting progress to share.  I have been working on my magic loop-two at a time-toe up socks.  I think I've finally got a rhythm going with them so I am starting to see some progress.  I wasn't sure I would like it at the get go because it was so hard to get going.  I don't work on them when I'm tired because I'm afraid I'll pull the wrong loop and end up pulling out my stitches.

On the book front, I just finished reading Knit One, Pearl One by Gil McNeil.  She also wrote the Beech Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club (book 1) and Needles and Pearls (book 2).  I have to say while I enjoyed the book I don't think it was the best of the three.  I did feel that she left it open for more books in the series.   The characters are lovable and the story line is just fun to read.

I'm also trying to finish Talking to the Dead by Harry Bingham.  I'm reading it on my kindle app and I've renewed it twice already, hoping to avoid a third renewal (I'm so close to finishing)  This is book one with the character Fiona Griffiths.  I read book two first, Love Story with Murders.  If you're obsessive compulsive like me, you'll need to read them in order.   You don't have to, book two makes sense on it's own I just prefer to read books in order and I didn't know it was part of a series.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!
