In progress

YARN: Nimu Yarns silk/cashmere 4 ply

Having gone into detail about the Stripe Study Shawl in yesterday's knitalong post, I won't bore regular readers by repeating it. If you haven't heard about the knitalong that Nat at Misadventures in Craft and I are doing, you can read all the details here. I managed a little bit of knitting on it last night but couldn't resist an early night in bed with my Kindle as I'm really enjoying this week's book. 

You may remember I'd purchased Assassin's Apprentice last week in the Amazon Spring Sale and I'm only half way through but it's very enjoyable. It's reminiscent of various other books I've read (Tales of the Otori by Lian Hearn are particular favourites of mine and there are several similarities so far) and the  slow unveiling of the characters is leaving me wanting more after each sitting. 

You'll notice a second knitting project under my Kindle. This is a little gift project so there won't be any pictures of this for a while, but it's something I'm hoping to finish this week.

I'm linking in with Tami and Ginny today, you can pop along to see more WIPs and books.

  21. I love your shawl and will be down loading the pattern in forthcoming months. I have so many unfo's I'm determined to crack on with first. My large yarn bag is overflowing.
    Its been such a strange sad 12 months with losses , employment problems,miscarriage etc but I'm still postive and count my blessings. Im now changing career to go part time. I have adhd and with all the stress I've been under I just need to do a job that I can do with relative ease and get my head straight
    Ive discussed this with my very understanding wonderful partner and hes happy for us to really tighthen our belts and for me to do this. I'm so gratful to him . I enjoy reading your blogs they inspire me so much.
    Ill keep you posted about my shawl.

  22. I love that purplish grey w/that vibrant pink. They are so fun together.
    I'm impressed by your multi-tasking of reading and knitting!
