Reading and Stitching

I'm still working on my Beach House-I promise, I'll have pictures of the Cherry Pie Skirt soon, and then we can discuss that hem I keep talking about.

Beach House is still going spectacularly-I'm so excited for this top, the yarn and color are delightful, and the pattern is so much fun. I'd love to get the knitting done this week-we've got a weekend full of concerts coming up, and I'd like to work on something a little further from completion, so I don't run out of knitting!

I've been rereading the Fairyland books by Catherynne M. Valente this week-the final book came out on March 1, and I didn't want the series to be over so soon, so I decided to start from the beginning again. I'm on the second book now, and these are just as enjoyable as they were the first time around. I remember reading the first book on Cat's website, under a "pay-what-you-want" model, and it's a little bittersweet to have the series ending.

Linking up with Yarn Along


  1. I have heard such great things about the Fairyland books. I should read one soon! The red skirt looks like it will be lovely too. :)

  2. I've never heard of the Fairyland books. I'll have to look into them. :)

    I have, however, heard a lot of people praise Beach House, and say that it's a fun knit. :) If it was at all a type of top I'd wear, I'd probably jump all over that. I'm tempted to anyways, but I'm REALLY trying to stick with things I'll wear. Can't wait to see yours too though!

    Along with that skirt. :D

  3. Can't wait to see your Cherry Pie Skirt! I haven't heard of the Fairyland series so I will definitely check it out. Happy Wednesday!

  4. ooh, that red is so inviting, it's going to be a great colour on you! You know a series is really good when it stands up to re-reading, and it's just as enchanting.

  5. Loving this shade and can't wait to see your skirt! :) x
