I feel like all I am writing about these days are the stars for the Holiday Garlands, or the squares for my Vivid Blanket. Assuming that these two projects end before my patience for them does, they will hopefully be off the needles very very soon (Yesterday, preferably). Then I can move onto something new. Mainly turning these two rather unassuming skeins of Cascade into a linen stitch scarf for my BIL.
Normally this would not be a colour combo I would pick for almost anyone I know, but my BIL loves orange. I was concerned that orange and black would be way to Halloweeny for a scarf, so instead, with the help of one of my friends I picked this combo. I am relatively certain the results are going to be lovely and would really like to cast it on.
I had the wonderful pleasure of starting off the 2014 reading year with this brilliant book. I admit that being a fan of Gaiman may cause me to be a little biased, however I do not think that can detract from what a wonderful read this is. Gaiman has once again combined being a wonderful writer with being an even better storyteller and has created a world in this book that engages and engulfs the reader. A true fairytale for adults, this is a fast and enjoyable read (in fact, my only complaint is that it isn’t longer), filled with memorable characters and a plot that keeps you hooked until the very last word. Additionally, the ending is outstanding. Fabulous from start to finish. I highly recommend finding a copy of this book and curling up under a blanket. It will be time well spent.
