Yarn Along: Tea time





I finished a tea cozy for our family and hand warmers for my daughter. Here in Texas, it's warm enough for an outside tea party but cool enough for hand warmers. This does not match my previous experience of February!

After finishing Shadows on the Rock by Willa Cather, I've moved on to One of Ours, Cather's 1923 Pulitzer prize winner. I am just at the beginning of the book. Though I don't particularly like any of the characters so far, I am drawn into the story and am interested in finding out what she does with it. I find that when I'm not particularly attached to characters in a story, I enjoy the craft of the writing more and I'm looking forward to having one of those kinds of reads.

Shadows on the Rock was excellent, by the way. I'd call it a must read!

I've opened up commenting on my blog. I'd love to hear from you.

  1. Great tea cozy. I love the color of the hand warmers. You are better than me with books. If I can't get into the characters the book gets returned unread.

    1. Thanks so much! I think it's Cather's writing that makes the big difference. If she weren't so good, I wouldn't be able to finish the book!

    2. I made handwarmers for several family members, but I don't see them much, so don't know if they love wearing them as much as I do. I have 3 pair and they are always in my pockets!
      Nice tea cozy.
