Today I'm sharing with Ginny and her friends at her "Small Things" blog; come join me and share what you are reading and knitting in "Yarn Along".
I'm getting to the end of my Elise's Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief in Malabrigo Arroyo Yarn in Marte (335 yds.) with about 55 grams left of yarn to play with. The original design called for 230 - 240 yds. I want it a tad longer than the design and so far I've figured the 3 row band of eyelets takes about 5 gms. So my question now is how many rows can I add before I finish with the last row of eyelets and 3 rows at the end? Here's how the original design looks in Ravelry:
So we shall see. I'll weigh as I go on my kitchen scale measuring cup (it's supposed to be for things like chocolate or flour) and wing it a bit. Right now my time is also taken up by Christmas Hat knitting, so I'll probably drag it out a bit longer. It's such pretty yarn to work with, I'll miss it when I'm done!
I'm thoroughly enjoying Stealing Justice (The Justice Team Book 1) by Misty Evans (still free on Kindle). It's a bit racey, so be forewarned, but the plot is great, the characters believable and engaging. A former FBI man is tracking a serial killer of girls from an Escort service for the top echelon of U.S. government. To catch him at it Sydney (who professionally rescues battered women) is recruited to pose as an Escort. She's dressed in the finest designer gowns and goes rubs elbows with senators and the President while a foreign diplomat stalks her. While former FBI Grey tries to keep her safe and she tries to not get in over her head with pawing diplomats, the sparks fly between them. I'm having fun! For a review - Goodreads - Stealing Justice (Justice Team #1).
Oliver "helping". He actually is so heavy that he presses down on my hurting leg and takes the pain away! Every afternoon I get cat therapy.
