Yarn Along | Coin PurseWednesday, September 16, 2015
It seems like only five minutes since the last Yarn Along.
I'm still reading The Return by Victoria Hislop. I'm about half way through. I'm really enjoying it, it's set in Granada, Spain and goes between modern day and 1936, it's wonderfully descriptive whilst keeping a good pace to the story. I plan to install myself on the sofa on Sunday, anchored by a sleeping cat, to get it finished.
I've started a new little knitting project (my attention span is so short that I'm avoiding larger projects at the moment). I've been looking for a new coin purse with no luck, so I decided to knit one instead.
I have the wool, I have a button for embellishment (I love buttons), and the purse frame is ordered and on it's way.
The knitting has begun, although I don't want to go too much further as I need to measure it against the frame to check it's the correct width. There is nothing more demoralising than unraveling rows and rows of stitches! (is the correct term frogging? I've never understood the term).
Anyway, I'm more excited by this purse than I would've been by simply buying one.
What are you knitting and reading?
