With the completion this morning of my Quick Sand sweater, all sweaters that were in progress are off the needles. Here it is blocking. It doesn't look all that great. It will look better once it's dry :-)
This one comes off of The Big List. That means I've only got one thing left on The Big List - the Rhiannon Socks. They are going to rest a little while longer. I have two WIPs on the needles - those socks and the Edradour shawl. Linda the Chicken Lady and I both started this shawl earlier this year. She's already frogged hers, and I'm contemplating doing the same. I don't care for the yarn I chose, and as I got going with the pattern I don't really care for it, either . . . so it goes. It was a good try, but I think I'm going to frog mine, too.
I should cast on some socks for the YOSS group. I'm trying to decide on a pattern or plain vanillas. I'll let you know :-)
Oh - and I did finish (on Audible) Book #4 in the Outlander Series, Drums of Autumn. I started #5, The Fiery Cross, on Friday. Here's what Amazon says about it:
The year is 1771, and war is coming. Jamie Fraser’s wife tells him so. Little as he wishes to, he must believe it, for hers is a gift of dreadful prophecy—a time-traveler’s certain knowledge.I'm enjoying The Fiery Cross so far. I'll keep you posted!
Born in the year of Our Lord 1918, Claire Randall served England as a nurse on the battlefields of World War II, and in the aftermath of peace found fresh conflicts when she walked through a cleftstone on the Scottish Highlands and found herself an outlander, an English lady in a place where no lady should be, in a time—1743—when the only English in Scotland were the officers and men of King George’s army.
Now wife, mother, and surgeon, Claire is still an outlander, out of place, and out of time, but now, by choice, linked by love to her only anchor—Jamie Fraser. Her unique view of the future has brought him both danger and deliverance in the past; her knowledge of the oncoming revolution is a flickering torch that may light his way through the perilous years ahead—or ignite a conflagration that will leave their lives in ashes....
Grand, sweeping, utterly unforgettable, The Fiery Cross is riveting entertainment, a vibrant tapestry of history and human drama.
And I know you've had that massive bass line in your head since reading the title of this post . . .
