the love of books and knitting...yarnalong

I was the kid that read the back of the cereal box from top to bottom. Place words in front of me I read them, or my eyes will scan my surroundings to find any words to latch onto to read. Bedtime reading is imperative, yet I usually must read something very light at this point of the day. Over the holidays I would be pressed for time with later nights and busier days, perfect for revisiting one of Lucy Maud Montgomery's books. Newlyweds, a quaint home on an island, characters that delight, a bit of drama with a twist, this book included it all.

Cables are tickling my fancy these winter days. The easiest way to get a cable fix I have found is to knit a pair of mittens or fingerless mitts. The wool is a ella rae heather superwash wool and the pattern can be found here.

Joining up with fellow knitters and readers at Ginny's. You can too!
