Finished Object! No, not the poncho

I've been knitting a lot lately. I made a red headband kind of thing - still finding new ways to cover up/ distract from my growing badger stripe of grey hair. Can't show you a photo as I'm not sure where I put it! I finished the Purl Ridge Scarf, just have the ends to sew in. I still have a baby washcloth to finish (baby due any moment) and I made myself a second wurm hat, pictured above. My first wurm hat was a bit too baggy and slouchy for me, this time I paid more attention to getting a yarn with a similar gauge to the pattern and it paid off, I like this one much better. I have a skein leftover, so I might buy some more and make wrist warmers or a scarf to match. I'm still putting off finishing the poncho I've been working on for the best part of this year. 

I just finished reading Crossing Places by Elly Griffiths, no picture as it went back to the library Tuesday evening. I read it for book club, not sure I would have picked it up otherwise. It's a psychological thriller, based on the salt marshes area of Norfolk. What I found most interesting was the details of archaeological finds in the area, the author obviously has an interest in the subject and the main character is an archaeologist. I find prehistory fascinating, so I enjoyed it, but probably not enough to read the next in the series. Next up is Homeward Bound: Why Women are Embracing the New Domesticity, by Emily Matchar, and recommended by Cameron

Joining Ginny (and wishing Ginny and family all the best as they wait for the imminent arrival of number seven!) 


  1. Glad the second wurm was the one, I love my first one the best, my second is okay but not as slouchy as the first. Great color for your hat!

  2. The wurm hat is on my must knit list, too. :-) Yours is a beautiful color!

  3. I love the shades of your yarn! So pretty! Also, woohoo, I hope you are liking the book! My husband read it too, and we had some nice discussions about it. Are you liking it? We must discuss! So sorry to be so late commenting--I have been terribly behind in the blog world these past few weeks!


please leave a comment or just say hello, I'd love to hear from you!
