Knitting holiday in the Faroe Islands – inspiration.

Some of the knitwear in Gudrun and Gudrun and around the islands. Plus the beautiful scenery too.











Knitting holiday in the Faroe Islands – my knitting!




Fantastic trip almost a year ago with Arena Travel . These were some photos of the projects – a pair of mittens and a lace shawl. You will be glad to know they are no longer unfinished!

United States reading challenge

This is based on books read since the beginning of 2010 and covering books set in a particular state within the United States of America. They are all fiction and many of them are crime or thrillers – though some are not. The map below shows which states I have ‘completed’ so far. Will update later and may also post a list of the novels read.

Spotted a book today by Donna Tartt called The Little Friend and thought I might try it. Seems to be set in Mississippi so that would also help with the States Challenge I set myself. Having not had any for Mississippi till now I suddenly discover several. As well as the above, the latest Lee Child (Jack Reacher 18) called The Affair is also set there, as is an old John Grisham one I discovered hidden in the garage (the Last Juror). So that’s Mississippi sorted – if and when I get them all read.
