…. I have been busy at my end.
Kate has mailed out the schedule for her year-long readalong of Les Miserables. And she mentioned that she has marked the weekly installments on her copy.
I loved that idea and have done the same thing with my copy.
I may fall behind, I may get ahead, but I am sure that seeing the installments so clearly will help me through.
And I’ve been knitting a hat. And, for the very first time, knitting sideways instead of bottom up,
I love the pattern and I have learned, and now love, Japanese short rows No more wrapping stitches and getting confused about what to do with the wrap for me!
And I should mention that the pattern is Anlalya by Mary Kay Gumayagay.
I was particularly pleased when the story took me to a tavern in Lamb’s Conduit Street. Oh to have been there and to have had the chance to nip out to the Persephone bookshop. I should love to introduce Evie, the heroine, to Miss Pettigrew …
Meanwhile Briar sleeps. She did head to the front door, but when I opened it and she saw the rain she turned around, glared at me and climbed back on to her cushion.
