What are you knitting and reading this week?
I'm joining Ginny at Small Things for Yarn Along and Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm and Craft On.
Knitting: I just had to join the An Enchanting Mystery mitten along after seeing all the pretty cuffs popping up on my instagram feed. So I found some leftovers of finull, pt2 and hifa and clue 2 is done. I like the colours, but the purple shades might be to close in colour. On the photo (which isn't a good one..) it looks like there is just one colour on the hand, but there is two different shades of purple. It looks better in real life.
I have also casted on a apir of vanilla socks in fabel. They are going to be a christmas gift. Yes, I'm starting early this year!
Reading: Det frosten tok (What the frost took) is a norwegian book about strong women Women who can help each other, but who are on opposite sides in a serious conflict. I've halfway into it and I am liking it, but hopes there will be a little more "action" soon.
The year is 1811. The Napoleonic Wars and the English blockade has led to food shortages , and there have been several bad years in a row. The hard struggle for existence has led to animosity and clashes between mountain farmers and Sami north in Østerdalen . Lea and Marjja are standing on either side in the conflict, but after a dramatic assault on Sami, an unexpected friendship between the two women occurs. They stand together to save themselves and their children from famine and death. Eventually they must also fight side by side, both against the merciless public opinion and the man who is looking for them.
