WIP Weds: Top and Toes

Hello all! <wave>


Guess what I’ve been up to! It has been so warm around here, all the snow has melted off the front lawn. So much for living in the Great White North. I’ve decided to Spring clean in January…

I was looking at my Ravelry Queue and was shocked that it had 647 projects in it, so with a little trimming here and there I am down to just the essential 562 :0)

And Knitting!

Did you see this on Ravelry:   This week Modjeska Hat by Tracey Grzegorczyk  this pattern was on my queue wish list. texaspurlgurl generously gifted it to me last month. She noticed my Scrap Jar on Ravelry Radar and sent me this treat.  Hope to make it for DH soon.

Book of the week: Mr Darcy takes a Wife by Linda Berdoll

I have read this many times, a great continuation of “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. This is the first of 2 books about Darcy and Elizabeth. I like how Linda Berdoll, depicted their evolving marrried relationship. I enjoyed this book so much, I purchased it for my new Ereader. Well worth it as I reread favourite books every few years. This is one of a few dozen, especially after reading “Pride and Prejudice”. (read recently)

Audiobook of the week: Persuasion by Jane Austen

Music Link: Fields of Gold Sung by Sting

    I really like the yarn you are using for both of your projects. Both look so cozy and happy. Thank you for joining us time and time again on Keep Calm Craft On! ❤ ❤

    Isn’t it incredible how easily Ravelry Queue and Favorites evolve? LOL. Nice work getting to the essentials ;-D

    I’ve never listened to an audio book. I think I’m going to start. At the moment I read at the repetive parts of my crocheting and then have to stop when I have to concentrate. Can’t wait to see the socks!! Also can’t wait to see the hat!

    Love that hat pattern! I am glad to see how variegated yarns used in stranded designs looks. Will have to consider that the next time I can’t find a striped yarn to use in fake isle knitting.
