Yarn Along

On my kindle The Darkest Part of The Forest by Holly Black. On my hook a wreath dweller which I am hoping will be my first published pattern!

I am in the final few chapters of The Darkest Part of The Forest and have thoroughly enjoyed the read.  I chose this book for challenge 12 of the Book Riot Read Harder Challenge, to read a fantasy novel, and as a modern day faery tale it certainly fulfils that brief.  It has been a bit dark and gruesome in places and more than once I have read it while peeking between my fingers but it is brilliantly written and a gripping story.

When I first started making crochet wreaths for other people (as opposed to the 5 I had already made for myself!) I started writing my own patterns for what I term wreath dwellers to sit inside as I was struggling to find already published patterns that worked for the creatures I was imagining.

While I have made notes of each of these patterns as I have gone along none of them are currently in the public domain.  But new year, new challenges and all that jazz!  I intend to put this one here, on my blog, once I have managed to conjure it from my head into reality and with the weather grim outside today and my book almost finished I am hoping to make good progress with that in the next few days.

Linking up with Ginny and the other Yarn Alongers sharing what they are reading and working on.

    1. That’s what I used to think! My first time I just sort of bodged three patterns that had elements I liked together 🙂 But the more I have practiced the easier have have found it comes. Don’t underestimate what you are capable of xxx
