So I have crochet and knitting on the go at the moment. The crochet is to be a blanket for Mr B and Ms G who moved into a new flat in early Spring, colours are inspired by the decor and by bees!
Knitting is a cardigan for me. I can’t recall the last thing I made for myself so I am going to enjoy every row. The yarn is Alpaca Tweed by Stylecraft. It feels quite soft to use, but it is mostly acrylic (77%) with short bits of Alpaca (20%) woven in. Not as exciting as I hoped for, but never the less a new yarn for me and my 15 for 2015.
I have just finished reading a book called The Shock of the Fall by Nathan Filer. A very good book , the main character of which has mental ill health. It has justifiably good reviews and having worked in housing support with people with long term mental health illness, I can verify its portrayal of a difficult subject. BUT, it is harrowing in places and I recommend it only to people in a good place themselves.
Currently reading two books, the history of Rosedale, a moorland dale close by, with a history of glass making and mining. And The Shadow of the Wind , by Carlos Ruiz Zafon, a good book but I am struggling to remember who all the characters are!
