I put out the call and you responded in kind, you good people. Michelle provided a list as long as my arm. No less than six of you recommended The Snow Child, and when lovely Lori repeated the name five times, I knew I had to act. It has arrived, and is everything promised and more - a wintry fairy tale with a slightly dark underbelly. I'm only a few chapters in, and I've only caught a glimpse or two of the child of the title, but already I'm enthralled.
I promised myself I'd cast on my new cardigan by the end of the month - last month. I chose my pattern and bought it, and today tried all day to grab a moment to wind my yarn and work up a swatch. During the dinnertime madness, I began. This is how far I got.
Am I the only one who gets to the last, say, tenth of the process before caving in and letting the yarn loop fall off and tangle beyond repair? Always within a whisker of finishing I'm left with a mess that takes twice as long as the winding to set right. I need one of these. Soon, soon.
