Very Secretive Yarn Along

Well. the secret knitting is coming along nicely and is nearly half way done. The deadline is the end of the month, so I'm hoping to get it done within the next ten days. The pattern has such an interesting construction.


I've had a go at galaxy dyeing this week. Also secret, since it might be for a gift. Husband said it wasn't nice enough, so we're in a bit of a huff with each other over this one. I won't be unhappy to keep it for myself though! And he has successfully replaced the heating element in our washing machine this week, so I can't be too cross with him.


I'm reading Jodi Picoult's Mercy. I usually find her books compulsive reading, but this one is really suffering for a bizarre plot contrivance about Scotland. It's driving me mad! I hate it! It's as though she assumes Scotland is stuck in medieval times. Also she has made some strange historical mistakes. I can't decide what else to read though. Bleugh, I hate not getting on with a book. Writing this down has really spurred me to choose something else today and get rid of Mercy!


Do pop over to Ginny's and Nicole's to see what everyone else is making this week, it's such a great source of inspiration! And do let me know what you're working on, I'd love to hear from you!

  2. Is Mercy the one set in a small town in the states? With a florist? !
