Somehow we are back round to the first Wednesday in the month again. Although I’m a bit shocked by how fast time seems to be passing I am pleased to be in September, it is definitely one of my favourite months of the year and I am really relishing the chill that’s now in the morning air here in Yorkshire. I am also excited to see boots, tights and lovely knitwear in my very near future.
On my needles at the moment is a Magpie Tendency jumper in Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply. I saw this jumper on Instagram knitted by the lovely HazySummers and as well as loving the look of the garment I was intrigued by the idea of getting a jumper to fit a larger body from just two skeins of yarn. So I’m having a go!
I’m loving the construction which is like nothing I’ve seen before and am also thrilled with the texture and drape that’s coming from knitting this 4 ply yarn on much bigger needles than usual.
I’m enjoying the physical feel of this book, The Wicked Cometh, which I borrowed from the library. The cover has a tactile, fabric cover which is so unusual in modern books nowadays, they all tend to be shiny and smooth, I can’t stop stroking it! The story inside is less compelling to me at the moment. It is well written and atmospheric but I’m yet to invest in the characters. Hopefully that will change as I progress.
Linking up with Ginny and the other Yarn Alongers sharing what they are reading and working on.
