Yarn Along!

I knitted the second cottage.

So there we have the complete Village Project.

Pattern is by a firm called Knitwell and the pattern is in a booklet called Oddments 558. I can’t find it on their webpage, but I have had it a very very very very very LONG time.

But wait..

Mary? Whatever is the matter? Your lamb?

On the Green and near the road. However did that happen? Boy Blue were you asleep?

Never! But who is that roaring down the road. Little Miss F in her car.

Stop Please Little Miss F.

I am reading my way through the alphabet. I had reached an author beginning with J. I was reading Henry James and What Maisie Knew. Let’s just say I didn’t get on with this book. Me and Henry James just aren’t meant to be. After 200 pages I couldn’t face one more word. So I read the book I had chosen for K. The Secret Life of Bees. I had seen the film twice and loved it and I love this book. My favourite read this year.

So back to the library for a new letter J. Now this book was the only one I fancied and I didn’t have high hopes for it. Think Bridget Jones younger sister goes to Canada.  But I am really enjoying it, pure fantasy but with some interesting themes to make you think.
