WIPs & Books: Re(a)d

WIPs & Books 23rd October
RED: The Rown Drift (colourway Fire) which just arrived for a Dragon Watcher's Hood - I am so looking forward to knitting and wearing this. Hopefully with these 10mm needles, it won't take too long as I am planning on some Dragon hunting during half term next week.Red is the colour of some other things I've been knitting too. Cute little things which I'll tell you about soon.

READ: It hasn't been much of a week for reading (or listening to) the novels which are on the go at the moment (Time's Echo and Case Histories) but if I tell you that I've been dipping into Moods of Motherhood and various puppy training books, you'll get a general feel for things around here.

The excitement of the new school year, a new puppy, and a blustery change in seasons is definitely showing on the children. They are totally shattered which makes life so much more difficult. On top of that, my mother has been flat out on a very exciting project and D has been working almost every day since August. He is beyond exhausted. We all need a break. Roll on next week and that Dragon hunting! 


  1. Red is my favourite colour! :-) Can't wait to see what you've made.

  2. Ditto here about exhaustion. I am nearly done ...
    Red surprises? Looking forward to it!

  3. Ooh! I like the sound of that pattern. Who wouldn't want to galavant about in a dragon's hood?

  4. Dragon Watcher's Hood? You find the best patterns!
