Last week, I was reading Defiant Joy (about GKChesterton ... excellent book!) and readng Lost in Peter's Tomb to the kiddoes. I was also finishing up a cashmere design which I've titled Blue Ridge Sunset (it's available for download from my Ravelry store).
So, what's on my reading table and knitting needles for this week?
A String in the Harp by Nancy Bond. It's a great story about a family who moves to Wales after the death of the mother ... and their adventures in the midst of dealing with their grief. So far, the reading is wonderful -- the images Bond conjures with her words are amazing! The book I'm reading is one I found at the library last week and was so thrilled with, I ordered a copy for my shelf:
Agatha Christie's Secret Notebooks! This book is fascinating -- seems Christie scholar John Curran deciphered Christie's hand-written notebooks to create this book. It's a creative-writing lesson in book form! For this wannabe-writer and Christie fan, this book is perfect. What a fascinating glimpse into the overall writing process! Loving it!
On my needles is a new design that I'm calling "Victoria's Tank". The body of the top is a classic Victorian knitted-lace pattern that will have a bodice put atop. I'm using KP's Comfy Fingering (a washable cotton-blend) and it is kniting up beautifully!
So won't you join the Ginny's yarn-along posts .... and any comments on my designs or suggestions for great read-alouds for the kids would be most appreciated!
moving again ...
