On the needles and between pages

Untitled


Reading: I finished Edgar Sawtelle and I both liked it and couldn't quite get the hang of it... It might be a bit slow in the beginning, but then in the last part of the book you start to feel a connection to Edgar. And then the end - what was that all about?? I'm not going to give away any spoilers, but come on, you don't end a book like that!
So after me being a bit disappointed of Edgar Sawtelle, I really enjoy reading His Majesty's Dragon :) Just have to love that dragon! I hope to finish it tonight so I can start the 2nd book tomorrow.

Knitting: If you haven't seen the finished Stripy sweater go check it out. And my Zigzag socks from last week are also done.
On the needles now are the 2nd Skull cowl. I think I'll get it done today. Just have a few rows left. The purple socks I had started on last week and maybe was going to me Eirin's are now being mine ;) Love the colour. They are a plain toe-up and I think I'll knit a ribbed cuff. And the last project is a shawl for my mom. She had a gigantic ball of Big Ball Soft by Schoeller+Stahl. The pattern is Larch. If I had searched a bit on Ravelry, I might have knitted this shawl instead, but the yarn is so "hairy" that ripping is hard. But the shawl will be very soft.

  1. De bøkene er veldig bra! Har lest alle sammen :D Hvis du liker fantasy så burde du sjekke ut Raymond E. Feist sine bøker, med mindre du allerede kjenner til dem ;)

    Og så masse fint du lager! Fine ting og fine bilder her inne og :)

  10. I'd be keeping those purple socks for myself for sure - they're awesome - unless you want to be really, really nice to Eirin :)
