Hello there, how are you all doing? I've just got back from Spain, I had a wonderful time but I didn't get to do much knitting. Since I've got back though, I have been working on my Pipers Journey which I have named "Buddies Journey" as it's part of Mel's, Buddy System KnitTogther over on Ravelry, which is running through September and October.
My buddy is Lyn, a UK lady who now lives in Canada and we are both working on Pipers Journey. It's such a great system, we quite often have a good old chin wag over PM, not just about knitting but other things too. When I got back from Spain, she messaged me to say she'd won the Pau Hana by Mel Ski Knits, one for herself and one for a friend and she has given it to me!!!!! Thank you, Lyn, maybe we can knit this together, at some point.
I've just been working on my shawl, since I returned, I reached the required number of stitches on Monday evening and started the lace border, last night. After using the two colours to knit a stripe pattern, I'm knitting the border in the beige colour in Rowan Cashsoft DK.
Every Wednesday, I link to Ginny'sYarn Along, where we show our knitting and also what we are reading. While I was on holiday, I read three books, I finished An Absolute Scandal by Penny Vencenzi by Wednesday afternoon, then also read A Night on the Orient Express by Veronica Henry. I loved this book, it makes me want to go on the Orient Express even more now, it sounds so glamorous. The other book, which I had to read on my Kindle, as I only took the two books, was The Saturday Supper Club by Amy Bratley. The last two books were fabulous holiday reads, good old chick lits.
I'm also linking to Work in Progress Wednesday over on Tami's blog.
