FO Friday: Christmas Presents continued…

Hi people, so nice to see ya again on this friendly friday :0)

Finished the 198 yds of Heaven for MiL, had only a golf ball size ball of yarn

left. This was a totally delightful pattern to knit. My only complaint is that, it  really is a bit small (approx 46″ x 22″)

198 yds of Heaven

If I had more yarn I would probably had done a few more repeats. However MiL is a good 6″ shorter than I am, to the proportion should be fine. The actual colour is deeper.

Currently reading a Pulitzer Prize winner. A rather absorbing examination of the development of civilization. Why some cultures took off and why others did not. Puts a whole new perspective on 3rd world countries vs the 1st world. Starts in prehistory, with human migration. You don’t have to be a scholar to enjoy this thought-provoking book.

    It looks great. I’ve been wondering about that book so I’m looking forward to seeing what you think overall.
