Yarn Along

The last Yarn Along for this year. Nearly finished my book The Master by Colm Toibin, the story of the writer Henry James told through a narrative of the most significant people in his life, his sister, female friends, and male friends, the latter may have been more than just friends. The scene shifts between Rome, Venice , London, Ireland and Rye in Sussex. An enjoyable read which I may get finished this year!

Slow progress on my latest cardigan for Little Miss F, the front and back is knitted in one piece so a row takes longer than usual. But the little dogs are done! Lots of ends.

On the needles another little cardigan for Miss F. I made this before in a smaller size,in a slightly different colour,  it has dogs round the bottom which I am just about to start knitting. She loves dogs. Should be a knit. Her Mum has shrunk the Peppa Pig jumper, how could she?

The Master by Colm Toibin is about Henry James. I like the books of Henry James, and have visited Lamb House in Rye where he lived. The book reads like a novel rather than a biography, and is thoroughly enjoyable.
