What first? FOs, tale of woe or book review?
Book it is, then.
Winter Reading Challenge Book 2
Portrait in Death by J.D.Robb
I found this on a hotel bookshelf and knew it had to come home with me because Chris had done such a good sales job on the Eve Dallas series I’d really wanted to read some. Well, where do I start?
After a fresh-faced college girl’s body is found stuffed into the garbage, it is up to Eve to track down the murderer. He has sent posed photos of the dead girl to a local TV station having been very careful not to mark her when he was killing her saying that he wanted to preserve her “light”.
Eve’s husband, Roarke, has his own problems to worry about after someone reveals the truth about his mother and this puts a great strain on their relationship at a very difficult time for both of them. Their majordomo, Summerset, who Eve has a hate-hate relationship has also broken his leg and hasn’t departed on his planned holiday which makes things even more difficult.
I really enjoyed this and I think I’m going to have to now track down the first of the series!
So, want to see some FOs?
Ok, you got them. They are just 3×1 rib socks made from Nickerjac yarn in the ‘Thorn in my side’ colourway. They are really lovely and toasty 🙂
I have half a FO to show you before I tell you my tale of woe. You’re all pretty astute – they don’t match. I usually don’t start on another pair until I’ve made two but pao didn’t have time to help me wind wool and I wanted to something to do so I got out the Rowan 4 ply soft and started on the Anna knee high socks as I didn’t need to wind that.
So I asked my friend Mrs B to help me.
pao is now trying to fix that tangled mess.
That’ll teach him for moaning about wool winding!
You made it this far! Yay! Now I need some advice.
As you can see, my leg is fatter round the calves than it is around the ankles. I am a little worried that I’ll suffer from the Nora Batty effect e.g. very baggy round the ankles. So do I change down a needle size? Will it look, ok?
