And the knit goes on...

My latest knitting project must remain unseen for the moment. You never know who is reading this blog. Suffice to say - I now know the attraction of Addi Turbo needles. They were there; I bought them; I loved them. They made the mystery project really fly along. So...this item required a 16 inch circular needle and also involves a pompom. Say no more. Oh, yes I will say more. All the colours in the pompom were used. Ah huh, a stranded something or other. Be impressed.

Since I've been knitting so much, the reading has been listening. "The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette" by Carolly Erickson was fascinating. I'm trusting that her historical details are accurate, because this is how I will always think of Marie now. My French history was a little hazy before, but this book cleared things up somewhat. It is written in diary form, which I usually avoid, but in a spoken form it was fine.

a pair of slippers? I guess you can't say... when I saw that pic, I thought you had made a tree ornament. ;)

A tuque with a pom pom?
I like historical novels, because I find it much easier to absorb historical information when its weaved into a story, rather than presented as cut and dry facts.

A tuque it is! The question is - will the recipient favor the colourful pompom, or should I go for the plain black one. I suspect the latter.
