Yarn Along....A Mossy Shalom
I'm working on the first sleeve of my 'Mossy Shalom'. The moss stitch at the yoke of the cardigan happened by accident, but I liked it and it was working stitch wise so I kept going with it. This is all i have on the needles right now so it should be done by next week. I really need to clean out my knitting basket before I start anything new, but I'm planning on some horses next (after seeing all of these horses!)
I picked up Letters from the Country at a thrift shop, I wasn't expecting to like it so much but it's a great read. It's written by season in little stories that are 3-6 pages long. Each story is embedded with country antics, plans gone awry, and little tips and bits of information about country living and farming (particularly sheep farming). The author is also located somewhere in Ontario so it helps that it's somewhat local. It's a really nice read and I'll be keeping it on my book shelf.
