Hi guys :)
This week i am finally remembering to join in with the Yarn Along!
So, this is my progress so far!
I gave up on the mock cable thing, it was too complicated to remember to do along with everything else! Maybe next time.
The bottom part is where i practiced just a knit stitch, then i mastered stockinette stitch and added a new colour. Yay!
This week i am reading Whispers In The Sand by Barbara Erskine
"Past and present collide in richly mysterious Egypt, where recently divorced Anna Coburn is retracing a journey her great grandmother Louisa made in the 19th century. Cruising down the Nile from Luxor to the Valley of the Kings, Anna carries with her two mementos: an ancient Egyptian scent bottle, and the diary of that original Nile voyage, which has lain unread for a hundred years. As she follows Louisa's footsteps, Anna discovers both the chilling secret of the bottle and the terrifying specters that pursued her great grandmother."
i love this book, i first read it two weeks ago and ended up enjoying it so much that i am reading it again! A fantastic thriller :)
This year i am also getting to go to Woolfest! Woohoo! Me and the Knit and Nattter group, and a few from the textiles group are going on a mini bus on Saturday! I am so exited! I must remember to take my camera :)
The basil and parsley are doing well and i transplanted the thyme
(at the bottom, looking slightly worse for wear!)
(an old sock dryer! Bought for the princely sum of 50p!)
It is in the pantry, and my notes say that it needs 2 weeks to dry out, and as this is the first time drying anything in the pantry i wanted to try a small piece to see if it works, as i'm not sure if the pantry will be too cold
