Knitting & Reading

My Wednesday was jammed pack with running here and there and I never found the time to sit down and post. So today is the day, although a day late.

I finished both the shawl I was knitting last week (not yet blocked so no photos) and the book I was reading. I love the yarn that I used for the shawl but am unsure of the size. I am a larger woman so am thinking it may be a gift for a niece or incentive to LOSE WEIGHT! The book was WONDERFUL! I am now anxiously awaiting the second in the trilogy which will be release in July. I would love to write this amazing review so that you all would see what I loved about it but I have never been good at that. I just know that I liked it, that my Mom probably won't, my MIL most likely will and my best friend most likely won't.  Does that help :)...

I am apparently sticking to a theme because this week I am reading The Physick Book Of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe that Sarah over at In These Hills wrote about last year. It is another book about a scholarly woman caught up in the world of magic. This book takes place in Cambridge, Boston, Marblehead and Salem - a little closer to home then Oxford. I am half way through and really enjoying it. It takes you back and forth between the 1600 and 1700s and 1991. Again, not good at reviewing books - sorry!

In regards to knitting, I haven't started another project but have the needles and yarn ready to make fingerless knits for my boys so that their hands stay somewhat warm when baseball starts in early spring.
