Yarn-along -The one with the sunshine

I know I was only away for four days, but I stored up all the Queensland sunshine, and I'm carrying it with me, spreading warmth and light wherever I go. There is no actual sunshine in this post, but everything is making me pretty happy right now.

I'm still knitting on Rams and Yowes. I am half way through the colourwork and I am loving every stitch. Like most of what Kate Davies Designs, it's a very intuitive pattern. So much so that I left the actual pattern at home one day and could still knit the little sheep from memory.

I'm reading Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter. I was looking for something a bit light and trashy to read on holidays, and this is not that light or trashy! It is not a difficult read though and very enjoyable. It's another book that jumps between different time periods, which seems to be a bit of a trend right now. I'm nearly finished it, and when I am done I am going to read something really trashy.

And I'm still listening to and enjoying the unlinkable Ivanhoe.

So that's me for another lovely week. make sure you pop over to Ginny's blog to see what everyone else is up to this week.

  3. This is rather spooky, I bought that pattern and that book earlier this summer! Not got around to either of them yet though - when the pattern mentioned the word 'steek' I got scared and haven't looked at it since! I must get back to it... Looks like you're making excellent progress :)

    1. And at the risk of sounding more spooky, I knit my mums friend one of those yellow ducks from your earlier post haha!

    2. Do it. Steeking is much easier than it looks, and the blanket is amazing.
