Yarn Along

Last weeks selection, Bonita Faye, was a really fun read.  Well, if you can say a book about child abuse, domestic abuse and murder is “fun”.  I enjoyed all the characters and despite the subjects, it was not a dark, depressing book.  More a story of survival, friendship and love of all kinds.

This weeks pick is The Expatriates by Janice Y. K. Lee.  I know, at some point, I read a review of this book and wanted to read it.  I was searching available titles in Overdrive, and there it was.  I am only about 50 pages in, but it is holding my interest.

In the limited time I have had to knit or crochet, I have picked up my Terribly Simple Shawl by Caitlin french.  A simple shawl using knit stitch and knit front/back.  I chose this project because of its simplicity, as this is my first project using DK weight and smaller needles.  I also wanted to create a neater edge, so I used this video to learn how to slip the first stitch.

Honestly, I don’t know what my obsession with shawls is all about???  I do wear this shawl around the house and I love how warm it is.  But, really…how many shawls do I need?  That being said, I am also joining Marley Bird’s Shawl KAL via RedHeart.com…more on that Friday!

Happy Reading, Knitting & Crocheting
