Good morning, as you are reading this I'll be in Spain, having a very welcome week away, relaxing and enjoying some sunshine. I'm writing this on my iPhone using the Blog Press app which I've never been very successful with so if the layout looks all wrong, I apologise and will sort it out when, I'm back home.
I don't do much knitting on holiday, I tend to read more but I did pack some yarn and needles to work on some plain Vanilla socks with a slip stitched heel, if I fancied doing some.
I'm using Regia 4ply sock yarn, which I've never used before, it's machine washable with a 10 year guarantee, the colour is Papillion. It's not as soft as most yarns I use but the colours are pretty and it's hard wearing, it will probably soften up after washing, too.
I'm taking part in the Yarn Along, hosted by Ginny, where you get to share the book you are reading and your knitting projects.
My holiday read is an 881 page blockbuster by Penny Vincenzi called An Absolute Scandal, the Daily Telegraph wrote 'Highly addictive. Don't even think of opening unless you've got a lazy week to fill', perfect as I do have a lazy week off.
I love what the Daily Express wrote on the back, what a great analogy.
Penny Vincenzi is:
"Like a glass of champagne: bubbly, moreish and you don't want it to end"
Also check out other works in progress on WIP Wednesday, over on Tami's blog.
Enjoy the rest of the week.
