A little Knitting and Crocheting

I wanted to share a couple of the projects that I have been working on, along with the latest book I'm listening to.  I so liked the book The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton that I decided I would try her latest novel.

The Secret Keeper | [Kate Morton]

Publisher's Summary

England, 1959: Laurel Nicolson is 16 years old, dreaming alone in her childhood tree house during a family celebration at their home, Green Acres Farm. She spies a stranger coming up the long road to the farm and then observes her mother, Dorothy, speaking to him. And then she witnesses a crime.
Fifty years later, Laurel is a successful and well-regarded actress, living in London. She returns to Green Acres for Dorothy’s 90th birthday and finds herself overwhelmed by memories and questions she has not thought about for decades. She decides to find out the truth about the events of that summer day and lay to rest her own feelings of guilt. One photograph, of her mother and a woman Laurel has never met, called Vivian, is her first clue.
The Secret Keeper explores longings and dreams, the lengths some people go to fulfill them, and the strange consequences they sometimes have. It is a story of lovers, friends, dreamers and schemers, play-acting, and deception told against a backdrop of events that changed the world.

Now for what I have on my needles is "Honey Cowl"


I'm really enjoying knitting on this cowl, works up gorgeous.



 I did get the slippers done.

 I can't say that they will replace my favorite pattern but they are cute. I need to make the next pair smaller. I followed the pattern and I wear 8 1/2 and they are a little big





Then I found these cute little shoes to make the "little dudes" on Pinterest. So this is my first attempt and this one is a little small, which means I'll need to increase it some. 
Well that is what I have been doing and I'm now going to go check out the others at

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
