Works in Progress


IMG 3325

The works being my sister’s cowl and reading Kristin Lavransdatter. I am making progress on both and will most certainly finish my sister’s cowl before I complete the 1,124 pages of Kristen.

I was going great guns on my sister’s cowl only to realize, after counting my stitches, that I had made a huge gaffe and needed to take out four rows. So, that set me back a bit. My goal is to finish by this weekend so I can wash it and block it and send it out to her before North Carolina’s weather turns warmer. Too bad she doesn’t have it right now since they are getting snow and ice!

The cowl and the book are connected in a way because my sister recommended that I read the book. It’s about a woman in fourteenth-century Norway and is really a trilogy written in the early 1920’s: The Wreath, The Wife and The Cross, rolled into one huge issue. It takes her from girlhood and throughout her life. It’s really good! I am not reading it exclusively as I have too many library books out right now and those have a limited amount of time; Kristen does not since it belongs to me. I am making progress one or two chapters at a time. (I am still on The Wreath.)

Tomorrow should be a good day to catch up on both of my “works” while sitting in front of a cozy fire watching the snow fall. All 10 to 16 inches of it!

About

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
