Wednesday's Yarn Along

   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 working on my Peace Cowl and a few hats I still need to finish for late gifts.  The Peace Cowl feels like it's a gift for me though, the knitting peaceful and rhythmic.  At some point in January,  or maybe February I want to do another in white, or natural.  Knit picks has an undyed yarn called Bare Capretta that's wool & cashmere that looks lovely and soft.

     On the reading front I'm reading a series by Dianna Love. I'm on the third book (there was a prequel) and I like it the most.  Honeymoon To Die For: Slye Temp book 2 .  Ryder is suspected of murder, he used to be a secret agent and he's released from prison with a lawyer to penetrate his family's home and business for the FBI. To pull it off he marries the lawyer, who by the way proved his quilt meticulously over the previous months.  Of course the pair start falling for each other as the intrigue deepens and enemies lurk.  Quite convincing and riveting.

     Well, in spite of that great read, I did get sidetracked with a Christmas short Romance, and it's lots of fun, Stranded, A Winter Romance Duet by Samantha Chase.  I'm chasing down more books of hers.  Goodread review - Stranded

     And because it's a special gift from my daughter I wanted to write about it.  She helped pack up my parents place this year so my Dad could move and she cleaned out and sorted my mom's stuff.  She sent me my Mom's scarves.  She passed this past year and every day she wore a scarf tied in her hair.  Many were Liberty from London, I think those from Europe were too threadbare, but my daughter sent the rest.  Now I'm wearing them in honor of her.

Please join us at Ginny's "Small Things" blog to share-

  1. That cowl looks yummy! Nice color too!

  2. My Peace Cowl is in a soft grey-ish color, I think it will go with everything.

    Happy knitting!

    1. I love wearing greys and whites withe black in January and February, especially greys, I think it mirrors the beauty of the snow and landscape. And you must have plenty of snow in Maine!

  3. I love your peace cowl. The yarn is beautiful. Enjoy wearing those pretty scarves. I think that is a great way to honor and remember your mother.
