Death of the Party


It's Wednesday! What are you reading? What are you knitting?
Join in at Yarn Along and let us all know!
 
 
 Two...maybe three...years in stash is quite enough for this sad Patons yarn.
"Knit me!" it cried. "Knit me, please!"
 
 
 Knowing that I need a small project when working on DGD's afghan gets too-too hot, Patons wanted to become a simple 2x2 scarf on size 15 needles.
And so, it is happening.
 
 
The final few pages of Death of the Party by Carolyn Hart are at hand. I'll finish it today--hurray! I have interrupted this book to read others, but have been plugging away to finish this. While the author has some clever bits in this book, her wordiness and awkward references to other mystery books and characters are distracting.
With good editing, this book could be a very engaging story.

Tell me about your current book and yarny project!

Oh! What a pretty flower! Is it an Icelandic Poppy? I've always wanted to grow those.

Knitting socks! lol. But I did start a baby hat. I just started "Night Veil" by Yasmine Galenorn.

I've read a couple of books by Carolyn Hart but not that one. I'll have to add it to my tbr list.
