travels-with-henry-james                  img_1942               Travels With Henry James – a surprising choice for me, not being a fan of Henry James.  Nevertheless this collection of various essays written over a period of time proved to be sufficiently interesting (and readable).  I’m not being very kind to Henry James am I.  Let’s say I’m glad to have read it but I’m not rushing out to try one of his famous novels again.

Blue Yarn, Sweaters, and Travel Memories

I have previously written about the blue yarn which I purchased at a little sop in the Aran Islands,which are located off the West Coast of Ireland.  I bought a good amount of this yarn and a sweater pattern.  When it finally came to the knitting, I used a different pattern for one and found I had almost enough of that lovely yarn for another sweater.

 

80th-birthday  Sweater 1, I sort of made up the design    

img_1933img_1940Sweater 2        yes it is the same yarn but the selfie photo  was taken in different lighting.

I should really get a photo of the 2 sweaters side by side.
