yarn along

Joining in with the yarn along this week.

The purple in the first picture is a birthday present for a friend of mine, a crocheted scarf, look here for the post I did on how to make it. The second picture is the pair of fingerless gloves I'm making for myself, I've adapted them quite a bit from the pattern. I kept the same colour work but made them shorter, changed the colouring around the fingers and didn't do individual fingers. I got the first one done and probably would be much further on the second if I hadn't got completely distracted by these books!

I started reading twilight by Stephanie Meyer on Saturday and I finished that one and am already  nearly halfway through the second in the series, new moon.I never got into the vampire thing when it started and I haven't seen any of the films, I was sceptical when I was given these books by a friend but, oh boy, they are sooo good. I am completely captivated and any second I can possibly get I have my nose in the book - stirring dinner, feeding roghan, when I should be sleeping etc... If you haven't tried them I would fully recommend that you do. Maybe by next week I'll have read the 4 books and will have done some more knitting!
