At the end of the day, I look forward to my knitting time. It’s a time to relax, slow down, and let the act of knitting help clear my mind of the day’s events.
This project is simple with just enough going on to keep me paying attention. I started it on our family vacation last week, and it was the perfect travel companion. After the first repeat or two, I didn’t need to look at the pattern all the time, which made it great to work on by the pool, in the room at night, and on the airplane. Now I’m playing an intense game of yarn chicken as I try to use up as much of this beautiful yarn as possible.
What would you do if you found out a treasured piece of artwork had potentially been stolen during World War I? What would you do if faced with serving German soldiers and being seen as a traitor was your only chance at being reunited with your husband? It’s been a while since I’ve read any sort of historical fiction, and I’m finding this version to be very good. It’s been thought provoking and entertaining all at once, the perfect kind of reading for me right now!
