Books & Yarn

I have finally some time to join the yarn along over at small things! My toddler is always curious, exploring the world, leaving me little time for the web. When I do find some time, with the shift in weather, I find myself drawn to my weaving and knitting, reading, and cooking autumn-y meals.

One of the projects I am (slowly) working on is the willow cowl. I'm not sure what yarn I am using for the tag is stuck in the middle of the center pull ball, but I'll be sure to update when I post the finished project to ravelry!

As for reading, I can't tell you how many times I've read this book. Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati is the first installment in a series. I assume it's classified as a historical romance, but I am drawn to it because it takes place in the region I grew up. It transports me to the landscape I fondly remember, and sometimes miss.

Hopefully I will be back for the yarn along next week, until then, enjoy the beauty of the earth shifting inward!

    1. Forgot to add that the book is a play on Last of the Mohicans, picks up several years afterwards. It's fun to see an author imagining that story going on!

  6. I know that three people have already said this, but that colour is so nice! It's just what I would choose (in fact, I'm knitting a jumper in a similar colourway, just darker). The pattern looks really neat :-)

    1. Thank you! I've had it tucked away in my stash for so long, it was screaming to be knit :)
