Joining Ginny for today's Yarn Along!
Entomology is finished! Or, as I like to call it: Dragonflies in Amber.
Here it is unblocked. See how puckered and ripple-y it is?
After a nice soak and a night being pinned to the floor it's a lot bigger and flatter.
Pretty Amazing, right?
You can see the dragonflies a bit better here, but I guess I still didn't get a great picture of it. I think it might take another blocking, too since I could see it rippling a litte in the afternoon. I read that merino is very stretchy and after you pin it down you can usually stretch it a little farther, which was definitely the case here.
As for reading, I'm still working on The Autobiography of a Hunted Priest. That's my bedtime reading, so it goes slowly, but I'm enjoying it.
I'll pick up from the library this week our new book club selection: Baby Catcher: Chronicles of a Modern Midwife. I'm sure that will be an interesting discussion, full of birth stories!
Have you read any good books lately? My list is growing!!!!
