Tome Time Episode 52: Just Musings, No Running

Welcome to Tome Time! There is no running section this episode, as I am waiting to see the physical therapist for my back. The fist nine minutes or so are a little dark, but the lighting improves after that for the remainder of the video.

The reading section begins at 2:39 and I discuss Monsters of Men by Patrick Ness, A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle, Hamish McBeth Mysteries by M.C. Beaton, and a couple of Julius Caesar graphic novels.

The knitting content begins at 9:35 and I show my Hyde Park shawl by Very Busy Monkey out of Toad Hollow yarn, some vanilla socks out of Sweet Sparrow Yarn, and plans for a Chateau by Dandelion Girl Designs out of reclaimed Cascade yarn.

The sewing section starts at 17:56 and is full of patterns and future patterns that I will be making. I have a Day to Night Drape Top by Maria Denmark that is finished and ready to wear. I have a half sewn Frasier Sweatshirt from Sewaholic Patterns and plans for an Easter skirt and a Plantain T-shirt from Deer and Doe. Thank you so much for watching and LACES!
