Its been a little while since I have participated in A yarn Along, well lets face it, its been a while since I participated in anything really over here in blogsville.So currently I am reading The Day of the Triffids by John Wyndham, A book I have read before and decided I wanted to revisit this year. Its an awesome book. I'm on the home run now with only about 20% left to read, I can't wait to share my thoughts on the book with you once I have completed it, its almost 10 years since I last read it.
In terms of knitting I have a few projects going on at the minute (don't we all?!) The one I am sharing with you today is Wispy Cardi by Hannah Fettig. I'm knitting it up in Drops Alpaca 4 ply yarn. After vowing that I would never knit a garment in 4 ply here I am, knitting a garment in 4 ply! The pattern is a little confusing in place but now I've got my head round it its very easy going, just knitting in 4 ply can be a little demoralising at times! The colour is a mustard colour, when once I was drawn to reds and purples, I now seem to go for mustards and greens (funny how our tastes change).
I do like Hannah Fettig's simply but very effective style. I by happy accident recently acquired Hannah's book called 'Home & Away'. I bought the book as a birthday gift for my best friend. Unfortunately some one else also got Isla the same book so she passed me the copy I bought her and I have in return bought her a different book.
Ive not really had chance to look through the book but from what I have seen it looks like an amazing book, well styled and the garments I can see becoming staple pieces in my wardrobe. From the outset there are a couple of patterns I know that I would love to make myself, I can't wait to get cracking on my next pattern.
