Mid-November Yarn Along

As you can see, not a lot has changed since last week’s Yarn Along. I’m well into Come Hell or Highball, Maia Chance’s Prohibition Era mystery and should finish in the next day or two. It features a young widow, whose recently deceased, run-around husband, it turns out, left her without fortune, home, or prospects. She and her Swedish cook (who refuses to leave until she’s paid her back wages) are squatting in his New York City love nest, but the rent is due in a couple days. She’s taken on a retrieval job for a Follies dancer, but the item’s gone missing and the last person she knows had it was murdered. And who, exactly, is the hot gumshoe who keeps following her? It’s cute, but not as quick-moving as I’d hoped.

I’ve been knitting more on my lightning shawl, but have pulled out this skein of Marigoldjen Yarns. It’s a dk weight blue-faced Leicester in the Levi colorway, and I’m going to turn it into a hat. The green is asking for something leaf-related, so I’m going to try it with Irina Dmitrieva’s Foliage Hat pattern, although I’ll be watching to make sure the design doesn’t get lost in the color variegation of the yarn.

Yarning along with Ginny at Small Things.
