I'm flying right along on a test crochet project. It's going to be an asymmetrical wrap-around shawl in the shape of a sail. I'm doing mine in lace-weight Woolike (in the colors, Denim and Charcoal). This yarn is so soft and easy to work with, and well...for such an inexpensive yarn it's just amazing. And you can buy it at Michaels - the only place you can buy it, I believe.
Having finished Orphan Train (which I highly recommend - for its historical account as well as its captivating story), I decided I needed something that will lift my spirits and make me laugh. The Secret's in the Sauce is the 1st installment of the 2nd series of the Potluck Club books. Five (or is it 6 or 7? - I can't remember how many...someone's always being added to the story) Christian ladies gather weekly for a potluck and entertain the reader with their antics, their struggles and their triumphs. Linda Evans Shepherd and Eva Marie Everson hit upon a great recipe (pun totally intended) for a series of on-going stories with the Potluck Club. With this second series, the club has decided to try its hand at a catering business. Given their track record, I suspect it's going to be a success.
Please feel free to leave a comment below. I love knowing who stopped by. Extra credit awarded to anyone who spots the mistake (the thing that shouldn't be) in the picture above. And tell me true - did you see it before I mentioned it? I didn't notice until it was too late.
