I can't even remember the last time I linked up to Ginny's Yarn-Along. I just haven't been knitting enough this year, I guess, and certainly not blogging enough.
Well, here is a finished project:
Books! I have been reading books, and not writing book reviews, all this long time I have not been blogging. Most recently I finished To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis. It would be a great book if you like Dr. Who, Jerome K. Jerome, Agatha Christie, P.G.Wodehouse, Dorothy Sayers or any combination of them. Time-travelling, historical incongruities, inscrutably wise butlers, eccentric Oxford dons, witty dialogue, and lovable animals. Oh yes, and the Bishop's Bird Stump.
Then there is Magnus Chase: The Sword of Summer by Rick Riordan, where he is attempting to do for the Norse gods what he did for Greco-Roman mythology. It looks like he has a pretty good chance of doing that, and there is the same ADHD action and sassy humor that you probably love from his Percy Jackson books. Spoiler alert: the 1st person narrator dies (right at the beginning). It gets wilder from there. I haven't finished it yet, though.
the socks turned out lovely. glad to hear the yarn is holding up. I am new to sock making and have a few made but not enough to know what yarn will work well and what doesn't.
