I haven't been making a huge amount recently, but I have finished these. Garland that *still* needs blocking -
And a nice light springy swing cardi.
I'm going to make a simple little granny square bonnet and a nice spring-coloured pebble next. I've chosen yarn! It's a beautiful soft pastel rainbow, acrylic-y but nice James C Brett Passion. :)
As for reading... I finished Fire (Kristin Cashore) and didn't like it quite so much as Graceling, the main character was a bit too nice... And I've read the rest of the Michelle Paver series too, which *did* live up to the promise of the first book - more for my must-get-for-Jenna list! Then:
Thankyou so much for recommending these! A Song of Ice and Fire series, and this is book, um, four? In a week. Honestly. They're really good. Not *nice* at all, but very very good. Oh and I borrowed a book of knitting patterns from the library that might help me use up some of that basket of colourful woolyness. :)
