I thought I would participate in the Yarn Along over on the lovely blog "Small Things" (where everyone is sharing their current knit/crochet and reading).
This is my latest project. I got the idea in my head one evening over the weekend and by the next afternoon I had it finished. It is SO easy! Just 8 granny squares sewn together with a little gather at the top via a crochet string.
I saw the idea in this book but didn't have it to look at when I made this so I'm not sure if it is the same or not.
I've been enjoying my reading lately. We've been on a Tasha Tudor kick so I picked this up from the library to learn a bit more about this eccentric and inspiring person. It is written by Tasha's daughter and filled with lots of photographs. Lovely to read.
I'm hooked on this series, set in the Irish countryside in the 1950's or 60's. This book is set back in the 30's though and I enjoyed the word pictures of Dublin since it would be a bit like Glasgow at the same time. It's an easy-read novel about a doctor in medical school.
I'm reading this just for the fun of seeing what advice there was for economizing in the 1930's. Ha! It's good for a laugh and interesting to see that some things never change.
I decided I just couldn't send this book back to the library without reading it again. I love it and must put it on my to-purchase list. The Gentle Art of Domesticity.....
And now I must return to cleaning the house and making chicken soup. Michael is doing better today, just looking different with his swollen face. The rest of us are trying to get over our colds.
