Yarn Along

I've been knitting this blanket for a while, but it's nearly finished. I saw it here and immediately fell in love with it, and really what's not to love -  it's colour blocking, garter stitch and super cosy looking. Instead of the gorgeous yarn Laura's Loop used I used the more local and affordable Ashford Tekapo yarn, a good New Zealand staple. I've used six colours and have just knitted each skein until the end. Nearly there!

I haven't been reading as much recently but I have just managed to finish The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver. I loved this book and didn't want it to end, I loved the Congo, the people and the twin aspect of it was really interesting too. Currently on my bedside table is A Game of Hide and Seek by Elizabeth Taylor. It's the third book of hers that I've read so I know I'm bound to enjoy it, I just need to keep my eyes open a bit later at night to get stuck into it.

I'm joining in with Ginny and I'd love to hear about what you're reading and knitting too.
