WIP Wednesday/Yarn Along and some crafty reminders

Before I get onto my WIPs, I'd like to mention the lovely Easter craft along hosted over at Suzanne's blog and also  to remind you that there are just a few days left to enter my final Blogiversary Giveaway sponsored by The Knitting Goddess and Tiny Owl Knits. I have been astounded by the number of entries so far and for the lovely comments left. Thank you all! 
There has not been much knitting. 
The little bit of knitting I've managed has been full of colour, texture and pattern....
YARNS: EasyKnits Splendor in Flamingo (50% superwash Merino/50% silk)

YARN KIT from Skein Queen
READING: ???

I finished last week's book, The Fourth Awakening, on Monday. It was a bit of an odd book - you can read my thoughts on it on my Goodreads page. Last night, despite having several things queued on my Kindle, I started reading a sample of The Hunger Games. I've had so many recommendations for this series, and despite my initial reservations that it would be The Running Man for kids, enjoyed the first few pages - it's likely that I'll download it and continue reading it next.  

I'm linking in with TamiGinny and Nicole today and looking forward to seeing what everyone else is making and reading!

  5. That Spectra is amazing!

    That's my worry about The Hunger Games too… somewhere between the Running Man and Battle Royale. But it's supposed to be very good!

  7. I think your shawl is breathtaking- the colors are so vibrant. I love Stephen West patterns. I am so glad you bought up The Running Man reference- that is why I haven't read the books. I look forward to reading your review.

  17. I really like that that you use a solid pink and a multi color yarn for your spectra, it looks really good together! Looks like the fair isle knitting is going smooth too.

  23. Both projects look wonderful so far! Spectra is so colorful and awesome. I like the Fair Isle of that mitt.
    I'm still a bit doubtful of Hunger Games but my husband told me it's more romance than guy action killing.
