Yarn Along


I really like the new Peace Fleece colors and thought they would look nice in a striped blanket - almost rainbow colors all in rustic shades - marigold, wild mustard, phoebe, indigo smoke, and porterfield smoke.  So far I have used up one skein.  This will be something I will do when I need mindless knitting so it will probably take some time to finish.  

While browsing the library on Saturday I saw An Irish Country Wedding by Patrick Taylor and knew that I had seen it recommended on some Yarn Along posts in the past.
It is a light fun read - perfect for before falling asleep, plus medicine and healing is an interest of mine.

A friend lent me, Natural Goat Care by Pat Coleby.  It has been on my wish list for some time.  I am taking notes as I go along.

Looking forward to the sharing today at Ginny's Yarn Along.

  2. You should go back to the first Patrick Taylor--An Irish Country Doctor. It's much better!

  3. Your blanket is going to be so cheery! I haven't used Peace Fleece before, but it looks like something I would like.
    We have been talking about purchasing a few goats for here so I will have to keep an eye out for that book.

  10. Those colours are going to make a beautiful blanket. Books sounds fun, is it the sequel to Irish Country Doctor? I read it a while back but don't remember the name of the author.
