KNITTING: Nuvem by Martina Behm in Drops Lace
Windward by Heidi Kirrmaier in Fyberspates Nef Sock
READING: Moondance of Stonewylde by Kit Berry
So these last few cold dark evenings have seen a couple more grams added to Nuvem, and quite a bit of progress on Windward. The picture doesn't do it justice, but you can see how the different sections are knitted at the same time, and how the stitches are going in various directions. It's a great design and well laid out with both written instructions and easy to use tables charting the number of stitches for each section on each row - it's really easy to follow and fun to see the different shapes developing.
The second book in the Stonewylde series, a light trivial read, has been my bedtime Kindle read this week - I'm about half way through it and it's okay - not as interesting as the first in the series but readable. When I've read that I'm going back George RR Martin and A Song of Ice and Fire (5) - A Dance With Dragons - I have been holding out since it was published after reading the others consecutively, but can wait no longer.
A selection of craft books has arrived over the last few weeks - keep your eyes peeled for some reviews over the coming weeks. I'm pretty sure some of them might be suitable for your own Christmas wishlist, or as gifts for others.
As usual on Wednesdays, this post is linked in with Tami and Ginny - you'll find more yarn crafts and books on their blogs. Have a great day!
