FO Friday: TGIF with Tams on!

 Well it’s friday again, I am currently off having Physio as usual, then a short visit  to my LYS, Soper Creek Yarns. Later shopping and lunch with MiL then home to read all your lovely blog entries, my favourite part of the afternoon.

Three Tams B

This weeks effort Three Tams B went quicker than I expected until I realized the crown shaping was getting smaller too quickly… dah read chart! Decease every 2nd row, so some frogging required! Was worth the #*%&@. I really enjoyed doing this one more than the first one, however I recommend stitch markers at row 26 (every 20 stitches) and remember to s2kp every other row or you too will be frogging. *I was down to 12 st when sanity intervened and the spidey senses told me that something was wrong, I even cut the yarn!* Finished now and like it!

Liddle Pouch

Also completed a little pouch. If there is enough interest in how I made this I will post it for you guys. Details here.

Weekly Book Report:

Currently reading “Celebrated Cases of Judge Dee” by Robert Van Gulik.

I read this years ago. I enjoyed it so much am reading it again. This detective story is written in a more classical chinese form of the genre. An interesting look into a time when the Magistrate was also the dectictive and questioning the accused under torture was common. Only someone who had confessed could be sentenced for a crime. The details of the criminal system are fascinating.

    I’ll just let you knit all three and then I can choose from your experience which one to knit. So far last week’s version is the front runner. But this one is lovely top!

    Your Tam B is really beautiful!
    And I am a huge fan of Judge Dee, I own and I believe I’ve read all of the stories at least three times, the last time in the chronological order of the events they represent (so when smaller stories were part of a collection of stories, I would read only one story from the collection, then read a novel or two, then another story from that collection, you get the crazy idea 🙂 But it did make a difference, I would highly recommend the method to anyone, who is determined to read all of Judge Dee stories.
