I know February is short but I’m still really surprised to find that a whole month has passed and we are back to Yarn Along again.
I will tell the full tale of these socks when they are finished but it has been a bit of a rollercoaster ride with sock number one, the one featured in last month’s Yarn Along, not fitting on my foot. So the socks pictured today are numbers two and three and are hopefully heading towards me having a wearable pair very soon.
I mentioned last month that I was reading my way through the Tournament of Books contenders (it starts today by the way which I am very excited about!) and one of those was So Lucky by Nicola Griffith. I found myself deeply moved by the passion with which she wrote that book and keen to try something else of hers. Hild is very different. Where So Lucky is contemporary fiction Hild is set in the seventh century but both feature strong female protagonists and I really enjoy Griffith’s story telling.
I am also more pleased than I probably should be with the serendipitous way that my yarn ball is matching the front cover!
Linking up with Ginny and the other Yarn Alongers sharing what they are reading and working on.
