Reading: Wildflower Hill by Kimberley Freeman
This is one of those audiobooks that has me looking forward to my daily commute. I'm on the last CD and I don't want the story to end! The book flip-flops between 2 characters: Beatty, a single mother trying to survive in Tasmania in the 1930s, and Beatty's granddaughter, Emma, a ballerina, portrayed in present day. I love historical fiction books that go back and forth between past and present like Orphan Train or the Baker's Daughter.
Knitting: Timber Rail Capelet
I have been working on this capelet pattern for months and it's finally done! I'm so excited to have a pattern that I can call my own. I want to thank my friend and LYS owner, Kathy, for nudging me to write this pattern down on paper.
And now, about the pattern:
The Timber Rail Capelet is knit on size 35 needles so you'll have a FO in no time!
Project is knit flat from the bottom up then sewn together. One size fits most. Two strands of yarn are held together to knit this capelet. You will need one skein of Cascade Yarns 128 Superwash and two skeins of Cascade Yarns Lana Grande to complete the project. The capelet is so warm and is like wearing a cozy blanket around your shoulders.
The pattern is available for purchase on Rav but I would like to give away a pattern to one lucky commenter. To enter, just leave a comment on this blog post. Be sure to include your Rav ID or an email address so I can contact the winner. I'll select a random commenter on Tuesday, November 25, 2014 at noon and will email the winner a pdf of the pattern. Good luck!
