Knitting and Reading

I am happy to join with Ginny for another yarn along.

I am working on the last rows of the my Eliina Shawl. There was a problem with the color change in the second ball of yarn and I had to do some unwinding and re-connecting of my own to keep with the flow. The last few rows are very long and a bit more complicated. I also cast on another Wool Peddlers Shawl for some less complicated knitting.

I picked up a book I had on my shelf for ages "Claude Michelet: Firelight and Woodsmoke - Applewood - Scent of Herbs" (3 books in one volume). It is the story of a French family over a century starting just before 1900.

Hi Maria,
Love the colors of this shawl.
Molly took a picture of the Halloween quilt I made her, if you haven't looked at her blog in a while, she just posted it today. Take a look. Hope all is well.
