I have several items "on the hook" at the moment, but I am nearly finished with two of them, the seaglass shawl that I am making as a gift and the shawl that I am making for Lady Iliffe's bedroom at Basildon Park. Then I have my scarf to finish before getting back to my blanket. Next year is then going to be the year of the needle rather than the hook - until I get tempted of course!
The main body of the Lady Iliffe Shawl is finished, and I am now working on border options. I don't think this is quite right, it is a bit too "bulky" so I am going to have another go with a few less stitches then I think it will be right.
Hopefully I can deliver this next week!
As for reading, I updated you yesterday on what I have finished! My next reads are these, along with a selection of Christmas magazines.
The December issue of Martha Stewart Living is the 25th anniversary issue. Although I haven't read it from the very start, I have been reading it on and off for over 22 years now! Scary huh! I don't think that there is any other magazine that I have read for so long. Sadly I don't find it as good as it used to be, in fact I have felt that way for several years now. So I only buy this magazine when I travel - a hint to where I have just been perhaps! - and I have to say that it isn't as good as it was! Oh for the good old days hey. Makes me sound ancient doesn't it!!!
I have started my next book too, but what I am really looking forward to is the This Old House magazine, I have also read this since it started some 20 years ago or so I would guess now? This has stayed pretty much as I remember it and I only buy this very occasionally, again if I travel to a certain place.
So that is me, yarning along with some crochet and some reading material!
I hope that you are enjoying your reading and crochet.
