Yarn Along

Last week I started The Good House, but I had to quickly stop.

Early on in the book, the narrator relays a story about a situation with a  special needs child.

It hit way too close to home and I actually felt as though I was going to throw up.

My day to day life is hard enough, I use reading as an escape.

This book was not an escape.

Most everyone I know loved this book, so I would suggest people check it out.

Luckily, I had a pile of library books on my bedside table.

Heartburn by Nora Ephron was the first thing I picked up.

I just adore Nora Ephron and enjoyed this quick read.

Next up, I am going to try The Zig Zag Girl by Elly Griffiths.

I like her Ruth Galloway series, so I thought I’d give this a try.

My son was home sick from day camp this week.

While he napped off and on in my bed, I read and worked on my Southern Diamonds Wrap.

I chose the small size and wish I had made it longer (I plan on using it as a scarf).

I am going to add on some length on either end using my copy of The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs (a present from my SIL).

Right now, I plan on using design #198 (fantail shells) to add several inches to the wrap.

Happy Reading & Crafting!
