Books and Yarn Wednesday
Continuing my life motto lately of, better late than never, I present to you my Yarn Along post. Thanks to Ginny of Small Things for hosting this weekly event!
I took a picture this afternoon in my car so I could take advantage of the daylight. It still isn't really stellar quality but better than if taken at night.
My book has been switched from what I was reading this weekend. You see, I found part of a wonderful British show to watch, and while I was moaning on facebook about wanting to see the rest of the season someone enlightened me to the fact that the series is based on a book!
Imagine my delight when I found the book available for my Kindle! So, here you see my Kindle, with the cover of Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth. It is actually a memoir of the author's early life practicing midwifery and nursing in the East London slums during the 1950's. It is riveting --and to my further surprise, there are two more books to complete the book series.
And in knitting news, my Arwen Cowl and I suffered a bit of a tragedy two nights ago....if you compare the size of it now to what I posted on Sunday, you will see that it seems to have shrunk quite a bit. And while it did not shrink, it did take a dip in the frog pond. While looking at the directions more carefully it became apparent that the directions I thought said repeat rows 1-11 until piece measures 7 inches, actually said, repeat rows 10-11 until piece measures 7 inches! Quite a big difference don't you think. So, I ripped it back and began again. I will carry on and conquer this pattern!
Ta Ta For Now~~~ We are hoping for a little snow tonight. Just a enough to have a late start to school and work.
