On The Needles :: Tallulah's Heart

Untitled

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: With the cold and rainy weather we are having here in the north, a pair of mittens seems just right to have on the needles... The pattern is Tallulah's Heart.

Reading: I finished Drums of Autumn this moring - loved it! So of course I had to pick up The Fiery Cross right away, hoping it is just as good.

1771: the Colony of North Carolina stands in an uneasy balance, with the rich, colonial aristocracy on one side and the struggling pioneers of the backcountry on the other.
Between them stands Jamie Fraser, a man of honour, a man of worth. Exiled from his beloved Scotland, he is at last possessed of the land he has longed for. By his side his extraordinary wife, Claire, a woman out of time and out of place, blessed with the uneasy gift of the knowledge of what is to come. In the past, that knowledge has brought both danger and deliverance to Jamie and Claire. Now it could be a flickering torch that will light their way through the perilous years ahead - or might ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes.

    1. 10 times!! Wow. It takes me ages to get through one of the brick thick books...
      I really love this series and I can't imagine any of them not being good, so I trust you when you say they are all good :)

  2. What pretty mittens. This really is a good time of year to knit them. They are small and not so overwhelming when it gets hot out.

      Well, we almost need to wear them here... Not hot at all. June has been nothing but rain and cold wind from the north :(

  3. Great colorwork as always, Hege. Reading a cozy mystery for a change from the bunch of YA and romances. Knitting the usual suspects of socks.
