Yarn Along 12/3/14

I've been planning to knit "the little dudes" some slippers and trying to figure out how to make the pattern I use look like Thomas the train. The boys love their trains. Then I came across this pattern on Ravelry.  

They are cute, not knitted but crochet, which is fine cause I know how.  In my stash there is all the colors needed.  I haven't started them yet, just found the pattern but sure
hope they turn out as cute as the ones in the picture.

What I have been listening to is book 2 of the Outlander Series written by  Diana Gabaldon

Dragonfly in Amber | [Diana Gabaldon]

I'm not one for Historical Romance books but I have enjoyed this one. Being one who doesn't read those type of books, I'm not sure if it is consider a true romance, all I know is there is more seductive parts than I'm normally read. Its the body of the rest of her work that keeps me fascinated. I love history and there is plenty of details that I enjoy. This book is 39.5 hours and the first was about the same. 
What made me want to read this series was the program on TV (Starz). I enjoyed the program and the book is even better. If you have read them; What did you think? Do you consider the to be romance novels?
Love to know what you think.
Linking up here



  1. I have read the whole of the Outlander series and now I'm listening to it as well. I didn't know it was available as an audible version until I saw it on another blog last week. I love it!

    1. Well I can take it as a testament to how good the books are. Have you read the shorter novels and novellas too? I'm not sure if you can get those as audible books. I will have to check Thank you

  2. Impressive slippers, I will be interested to hear how they work out.

    1. I thought so too. We'll see. I will have to post them when I'm done. Take care

  3. I love all of Diana Gabaldon's books! I hesitate to call them romances because the stories are well researched and there is so much character development, and that is something that seems to be lacking in the traditional "romance" book. After reading about these people through so many novels, I feel like I know them!

  4. Oh, my goodness, yes, they are romance!!! Great, great books....Have been reading her for 20 years now. Got the 20 year commemorative edition of the Outlander!!! Such wonderful character development.... and how history would have affected the people of the time.

  5. Those slippers are going to be so cute!

    I read the first novel in the series, but couldn't muster the enthusiasm to read any more of them.


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.
