Yarn Along-0973

I finished reading Rebecca last week, and while I was very sucked into the story, I do have to agree with a comment one of you left last week, that it’s dark and depressing.  It didn’t actually depress me, but it certainly isn’t a happy book.  I guess that’s why it’s considered a Gothic novel?  It’s suspensful and creepy and people love it, but it is kind of a downer.  I don’t know that I’ll read anything else by Daphne Du Marier.  Who am I kidding?  I probably will.

I checked out Never Cry Wolf from the library for Seth, when searching for another Farley Mowat book for my younger kids.  When I got home, Seth informed me that he already owns this book and read it ages ago.  Oops!  Now I’m reading it for something quite different from my most recent reads.

I finished my baby knits and just have to sew buttons on the little Mary Jane’s.  I also started another shawl, because I have to always be knitting multiple shawls I guess.  I’ll share pictures and details on that later this week.  I’ve worked a few rows on my Barn Sweater as well.  As we approach fall I feel myself being pulled in lots of different knitting directions.  There are so many things I want to knit!  I am hoping that once we settle into a homeschooling rhythm I’ll have more time for knitting.  That may or may not be wishful thinking.

The bonnet is finished, and just needs a ribbon.  This pattern was quick and easy to follow, and I think it’s really cute!  I started a pair of little Mary Jane booties to go with it.

Rebecca is so, so good, just like everyone said.  I have been neglecting my knitting to read in the evenings, and am about halfway through.
