Yarn Along

This week I finished The Readers of Broken Wheel Recommend.

Such a sweet book.

A relaxing read about a girl from Sweden, a small town and lots of books.

I loved this particular chapter:


The title of the chapter says it all: The Smell of Books and Adventure.

I’m one of those weird people who loves the smell of books and I totally related to this chapter…how different types of  books smell different.

How each time you open a book there is a new adventure awaiting you!

My next adventure brings me back to an old friend-Will Trent.

Oh, how I love Will Trent.

Karin Slaughter’s The Kept Woman.

I treated myself to the hardcover.

Only for Will Trent would I spend the money and not wait for the book from the library.

I can’t wait to dive in.

I finished my Caron Cake Super Scarf, posting on that later.

This week I dug into my stash and wound up some yarn for a pattern test for The Knot Theorist.  


I will be testing the Rain on the Cobblestones Cowl.

Looking forward to starting this later today!

    I can’t wait to see this cowl pattern in the works. I’ve never seen that brand of yarn before. Have you used it before? The smell of a brand new book or a fresh notebook or even a new car makes me smile.

      I haven’t used this yarn before. I bought it on Craftsy.com and they call it a Craftsy exclusive so I’m not sure if it is their own brand. It’s awfully soft though!

      I love cracking a brand new book. I read on my iPads and kindles, but always love getting a brand new book in my hands!
