Yarn Along!

First of all let me direct you to Annie’s site for news of a wonderful yarn giveaway.

I finished Lamentation by C J Sansom. I really recommend this book if you like mystery novels with a Tudor twist.

So next is another story about the Number One Ladies Detective Agency. Two chapters in and it is as delightful as the others I have read in this series.

One the needles is the jacket for Master T’s 4th birthday next week. Now on the second front with sleeves and a large collar to go. Will I complete it in time?  Going to be touch and go. The awful weather we have now helps. The weekend was spent in the garden and on walks, such lovely sunshine!

National Libraries Day

Today is the day to go out and visit your library on National Libraries Day. My own library is under threat of closure. Unbelievable that here in the UK we value books so little we can even contemplate closing a library. Ours might be saved through the use of volunteers, which is worthy but still sends out the wrong message I believe. What do you think?

I am nearing the end of Lamentation by C J Sansom. I have loved this book so much, about the  mysterious disappearance of a compromising book written by Catherine Parr, last wife of Henry 8th, forming  the basis of a cracking good read! I have read two chapters every night, and much as I want to know what happens I don’t want the book to end. Only solution, go out and borrow two more books from the Library.

Yarn along!

A new book and new knitting. I finished the bamboozle cardigan and started one in Sirdar Tiny tots yarn from my stash. New yarn order placed yesterday. Darn, I was out when it arrived today and will have to wait till tomorrow!

The book is Lamentation by C J Sansom. I love his writing, Tudor mysteries abound! Does anyone else have problems with the dust covers on hard back books. The idea is surely to keep the book looking nice, but I am frightened of tearing them, so take then off whilst reading the book, and put the cover on when I have finished the book, which surely destroys the point of a dust cover? Have I missed something here?
