Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

Yarn Along!

So for my Village Green I now have three trees to go with the Green, the road and the pond. Under construction now is the first of two cottages.

I love the pattern for the bricks and it is unbelievably simple. No carrying yarn across the back as you simply slip the stitch in the dark brown rows. Genius.

On the book front of My Read through the Alphabet personal challenge is I for Kazio Ishiguro. He wrote Remains of the Day, if the name is familiar. The Buried Giant is his latest book, and it is a bit weird. Set in Saxon England where people still believe in dragons and ogres, or are they real, an elderly couple go on a journey to be with their son in a nearby village. The land is beset with a Mist of Forgetfulness meaning that people cannot remember their past. I am not a big fan of fantasy novels. Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter being the exception. Not certain I will make it to the end of this book.

Here are my trees just in case a mist of forgetfulness has beset this blog.
