During the Easter Holidays I spent my spare time reading as well as knitting. I have enjoyed three Elizabeth Chadwick novels, I couldn't find The Conquest for this photo. I have also been reading more of the No1 Ladies Detective Agency stories. My wrap has grown to nearly its full size and I have decided, when its finished, to crochet on at both ends a very pretty edging which I found in a book my parents gave me. It is by Nicky Epstein. It is full of the most wonderful edgings for all sorts of projects. Looking at my photo the wrap looks grey but it is infact a deep purple plyed with a creamy white. I hope you have a lovely week.

I love reading but I haven't had much time to do it. :( Those crafting books look insanely fun! :)

I spent some time readin the Newbery Award children's books. I love detective stories, too!

When you finish the shawl do post photos of all the details!

The wrap is looking wonderful. I have not been reading much lately, I have been so busy with work. I love the lady detective books as well. I think I pretty much have all of them and one I have not read yet.
