I was pleased to discover Ginny
had brought back her knitting and reading yarn along,
because frankly I do find myself enjoying
the sharing of current reads and knitting projects.
And the best part is the fun of seeing
what other knitters are reading too
When visiting Maine back in August of 2017, I could not wait to make a stop by the Swan Island dye shop, and while there I purchased this pattern. In January, I drove to my local yarn shop and purchased the required skeins of Swans Island merino wool in the beetroot color way. I was literally itching to begin knitting with this yarn but I continued on with this sweater until it was finished, but now the Madison is turning out to be a wonderful summer knit. The yarn is as soft as my cat's fur.
How George Eliot's Middlemarch became my present book of choice for the present has a story too. I never was much for allowing the length of a book to intimidate me, yet the timing must be right, Sometimes I wonder if it the palpable absurdity of beginning this novel will be the hoping it will not end. Some books are like that and it is a quite a pleasant treasure when you find such a novel.
