Yarn Along

Time to join Ginny for another yarn along. I always enjoy seeing what other people are reading and knitting and I have found quite a lot of inspiration that way.

I have just finished last week's book - "Star of the Sea" by Joseph O'Connor and enjoyed it a lot. It is a dark story, set in the time of the famine in Ireland but very well written and it keeps up the suspense all the way to the rather surprising end.

This week I will start reading "The Road from Chapel Hill" by Joanna Catherine Scott. The story takes place in NC during the Civil War. I bought it at the library's used book sale and it sounded interesting. And I am about to start knitting a cowl for myself.

I am so glad to hear you are knitting something for yourself Maria and I do hope your will model it when you finish!

Thanks for the book suggestion. I am going to see if our library has Star of the Sea. I recently finished another set in the same time, it should be interesting to compare.

Which cowl pattern will you use?
