Yarn Along

From Ginny (and long have I followed fellow bloggers doing it!) - ~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?

I think I may have found my reading mojo again. Thanks to Wife,Mom,Knitter - she is the one who lent me The Murderer's Daughters. This book so far has been just right for a summer read. The story is narrated by each of the two sisters from the beginning when their father kills their mother, and continues over their experiences over the next 30 years. Very interesting; and the story really sticks with you. I am about 40 pages from the end and am quite curious as to how it will all be wrapped up.

I've been enjoying working on the Juneberry Triangle in Malabrigo (Periwinkle) - charts A through C moved along quite quickly. Now on Chart D, there are bobbles. I am not a fan of bobbles at all and thought about leaving them out of this pattern, but decided in the end they do contribute the "berry" aspect of the pattern. They are not too terrible to work, but they do slow me down. Also this chart requires a bit more attention - I haven't been able to find the rhythm of the pattern yet. One stitch at a time, one row at a time, it will get there.

I love the color of Juneberry!
