Yarn Along...

This week I am joining in with Yarn Along,  a linky party sharing a knitting project with a current read.

I am still working on the chunky cushion cover using some gorgeous 3ply woollen yarn by Nature Spun 3ply 100% wool. You can see my previous post about it here. The plain stocking stitch is so textural.

This week I couldn't resist purchasing the latest Dan Brown book Inferno.  I enjoyed the page-turning thrills of his previous books and this one is proving just as exciting. Throw history and puzzles together in a setting like Italy and I am right into it!

It is Friday afternoon in Australia and it has been far from relaxing. Three year old Tom decided he didn't want a bath locking the bathroom door as he exited.  I was standing just outside the bathroom door getting his PJs organised.  I had a mad three minutes trying to get the bathroom door handle off with a screwdriver hearing the water getting closer and closer to the top. It was my very own Dan Brown adventure! Luckily I got the door open just at the last moment before the water spilled over the bath edge flooding the ceiling below.

So with a glass of wine and nerves that are still slightly frayed I wish you a happy weekend...

That yarn looks gorgeous. Have fun with Dan Brown! I haven't anything of his since Angels & Demons/Da Vinci Code came out.

The joys of having toddlers... glad you avoided the catastrophe :-) What lovely yarn, it looks nice and soft.

Thanks for commenting on my Mairmaid. In answer to your question about the water background: it didn't take very long to do the satin stitch, in fact it probably took a lot less than it would have done in cross stitch.

I'm glad there was a flood and you were able to save the day. I wish I had a sewing machine like yours.
