It is hard to believe it is already May. The month of April seemed to fly by, despite the winter-like weather we had most of the month. Spring has finally arrived here and we are enjoying the spring breezes, golden daffodils and sunshine!
Today I am pleased join the May Yarn Along. Despite spring's arrival my knitting is autumn minded. I know how little knitting I accomplish throughout the summer months, so I thought it best to begin work on a new fall/winter cardigan for Jemimah. The pattern I am using is "Granny's Favorite", I used this pattern once before.
I am currently reading For All Your Life by Emilie Loring. The book was published in 1952. It is a fun romantic mystery about a young woman who unexpectedly inherits a fortune, as well as a beautiful mountain home. From the day of her arrival mystery has followed her, as she and her new found friends try to discover a missing parrot and $10,000 of stolen money. I am more than halfway through the book, and have enjoyed the descriptions and story line. However it is not my favorite Emilie Loring book. I have read a few of her books now, and this so far has been my least favorite.
You may remember these coasters from this post. They were a fun project and the best part is they are pretty and practical! I used this pattern to crochet my coasters.
