Hi everyone. I've been having a great time with my parents, and we had a fabulous visit to Orkney/the north of Scotland. I did manage a bit of knitting and crochet, but not that much to be honest.
The leaf cardigan is still a WIP......I've gotten far enough along that I am almost positive it will be too small, so I've lost all desire to finish it. I will, I'm just not sure when. So instead I've started a hat for my Mom. As predicted, it is much colder here then they are used to, and I'm doing my part to keep them warm. Progress is slowish, but I hope to be done soon. It is a Sirdar pattern in Crofter Chunky, thistle colourway. Hard to see the pattern right now though......
I've also been practising my crochet. In all honesty it is getting most of my attention. I'm working on a Market Bag, and it is fun! I'm using some cotton yarn that my parents brought me, and I'm almost done with the bottom. The sides are triple crochet, which I've not done before. I am really loving learning a new craft.
As for books, I'm reading Mistborn, the Final Empire by Brandon Sanderson. I was just telling my Mom this morning that I don't consider myself a fan of science fiction or fantasy writing (she is), but I'm a liar. I'm starting to love it, and it is all my husbands fault! This book is fabulous so far, though I'm only 60% through it. Luckily there are two more after this one, so I'm set for a while.
Take care, and happy crafting. If you have sunshine, please take a minute to enjoy it and think of me, suffering in an almost continuous downpour and covered over by grey cloud. If you are suffering from the heatwave, I'll do my part and send cooler thoughts your way.
