Work is progressing on my Juliana Mod wrap. It was slow going last week as the heat wave we were enduring made work on anything that rests in your lap unbearable. That lead me to search for something light and cotton to work on. Washcloth patterns are plentiful on Ravelry and I popped several into my queue. I decided on this simple star pattern. It's proven a good choice and I'm certain in no time I'll have a collection going.
Keeping the washcloth mojo going, as part of my Year of Projects I'm continuing my lessons in Tunisian Crochet. As with any type of crochet technique there are simple stitches, and complicated multilayer stitches that take lots of practice. I'm still getting the hang of working with the extra long hook, so complicated isn't in my future - yet! Check in on Sunday for my YoP update and I'll tell you all about it!
The fiber theme continues into the world of fiction with the latest knitting mystery from Maggie Seffton, Cast On, Kill Off. This is the tenth installment in the series. Set in Fort Connor, Colorado, the House of Lambspun is the LYS that keeps the varied cast of characters connected. Plans for Megan's wedding are all coming together, until her seamstress is found murdered. Then the gang at Lambspun put down their needles to figure out who-done-it so they can get back to happily ever after. I call these books "mystery lite". They're often more about the relationships than the mystery and so far that seems to be the case here. Easy reading after a long, hot day!
