Yarn Along after internet-less-ness

Morgan's Christmas hat is flying off my needles this week. It's my handspun, requested by her before I was even through spinning it. Progress picture was my blissful respite of mama conversation and hot cups of tea during sling meet at soft play. :)

I also got a birthday crown knitted up for a friend.

And while the internet was down, I finished the Mortal Instruments series and I have a bone to pick with authors who finish a book on the more ludicrous kind of cliff hanger so you wonder if they just decided that their story was too long, "may as well make it into two books and get paid more!" Grr. Also, I read both The Last Runaway and The Shining Girls (both really wonderful and much more interesting than I expected them to be).

I'm much less productive when I have an internet connection. ;)

Joining in again for a weekly roundup of knitting and reading with Ginny and friends.

    1. The crown is a can't-remember-where-I-found-it pattern. You might have luck searching on Ravelry! :)

      I read those three mostly in evenings with baby nursing to sleep, but The Shining Girls was a good afternoon of reading while the girls had a Mario tournament.

  3. So glad you enjoyed my recommendations. I really enjoyed the Shining Girls, and thought you would too. I also really liked the Last Runaway, but didn't think it would be your cuppa, but I knew you're always on the lookout for new books. Can you see now why I want a billion quilts and blankets? ;)

    You can keep the books and do what you feel suitable in terms of passing them on.x

    2. Oh, can I borrow the mortal instrument books? Am now about halfway through the second one and do want to read the others eventually.

    3. You'd be welcome to, except that I loaned them to Emma so you'll have to wait for her to finish first! She doesn't yet have the fifth book, and I'm not sure if she started book four yet, but I know she's getting through them quite fast. :)

    4. Fair enough. Will take me a while before I'm ready for them.
