Clay & Paper

Continuing on with some things I’ve picked up recently, first is a beautiful set of handcrafted mugs.

My two Clay Things mugs!
I’ve already enjoyed a hot cup of Lady Grey tea in them. They’re just the perfect size and make a nice cup of tea all the more enjoyable.

I’ve also picked up Clara Parkes’ The Knitter’s Book of YarnBook of Yarn
I’ve been reading another of her books The Knitter’s Book of Wool, but I find that this one gives a bit more clarification on many techniques and terms. This is an enjoyable read, not just as a great reference for different types of yarn, but as a straight read as well. It’s filled with anecdotal stories, suggested yarns and patterns to try out all the great new characteristics in the yarns that are introduced throughout the book.
