{Yarn Along} Winter Night Socks

I'm doing my Yarn Along post a few days early this week, since I'll have a guest post from author Larissa Reinhart on Wednesday. She'll be showing you how to do Japanese tie-dye and there's a giveaway too, so make sure to check back then. 

The Winter Night socks are done.  I still wish they had the spectacular contrast that the Fall Night pair did. Other than that,  they're socks, I'll wear 'em, and they kept my fingers busy for a couple of weeks. Which was their intended purpose.

Not every pair is going to be my favorite.

The Girl Before by JP Delaney

The house at One Folgate Street is an unusual property. The application for renting it is even more unusual, starting with the request to list every item you find essential to your life. Most applicants don't make it through the grueling application process, but Emma and Jane, two women who live in the house at different times, are both determined to make One Folgate Street their home.  That application is only the beginning. Life as a tenant comes with an incredibly restrictive set of rules. The idea of minimalism has always made me a bit uncomfortable and this book takes it, and the issue of privacy, to scary new levels.  I really loved this one. It alternates between two characters living in the same house at different times and once or twice I lost track of who was when...but in this case I think that was a deliberate move on the author's part. I definitely didn't see the ending coming. If you're looking for a domestic thriller that's a little bit different from all of the others, give this one a shot. You won't regret it!

Michelle, I think your Winter Night Socks are really very pretty. Of course I love the blues and greens together too. The colors are so peaceful and rich. They will keep you feet just as warm as the other bright pair. lol
