Yarn Along – 1/14/15

January 14, 2015

Laura’s Blog Entry

Really enjoying The Bookman’s Tale by Charlie Lovett. It moves between Shakespeare’s time, the 1700s, 1800s, 1980s and the 1990s, unravelling the mystery of a book that might (or might not) be the source material for one of Shakespeare’s plays. It’s much more interesting than I am making it sound, but I am only half of the way through so that’s all you get so far.

The knitting is a shawl – Aise by Espace Tricot. I am knitting it in Knit Picks Shadow laceweight in color Midnight Heather. It’s a dreamy blue/black with a hint of teal to it. The yarn colors on the Knit Picks website are very well photographed and I’ve found they are very true.

I need to get some straight needles in the right size to get this moving faster. It’s on a small circular right now, which doesn’t have enough structure to it so it is very fiddly. I love the shawl, though!

    I really liked the Bookman’s Tale, too…..and that was the main reason I picked up his newest—First Impressions. It flips back and forth between ‘today’ and Jane Austen. It was AWFUL!!! Love the color of the shawl!!!!

      That’s always the way, isn’t it? It’s gotta be hard to write multiple books. I’d be afraid no idea would be as good as my first one! Thanks for stopping by!
