Still rippling - still in love with it - still coming up with terrible post titles. It is just such a wonderful trippy off the tongue word - r-r-r-r-r-i-p-p-p-le! I think the colours are working out quite nicely on the whole. The first three stripes, and the pink in waiting are Debbie Bliss Cashmerino and the lilac is Millamia. Now that I am a few rows in, I am finding the pattern much easier to keep track of. A couple of times in the green and purple stripes, I had to frog back most of the row to rectify the mistake. I did think of ignoring it and bodging on, but no! I am still so elated that I can actually do this at all, so I want to do it right.
As for the reading - well, I just cannot lay my hands on the book I was reading, but it is The Snow Goose by Paul Gallico. It is not the edition in the link, but an old copy that I found on the charity book trolley in the supermarket (Co-op), for 50p. A beautiful tale about the relationship between a young girl and a hunchbacked artist during the WWII, and culminates in the Dunkirk evacuation.
Joining in this week's round of Yarn Along with Ginny again.
