Knitting and reading - Bitter & Sweet
I finished two squares for the potholders and decided to crochet the other two squares, but I regret that choice. Somehow knitting feels more relaxing and soothing than crocheting. But I'll finish these now.
*edited to add: I was wondering why I got comments about a cowl. Oh, I see. My mistake. It's a poncho, not a cowl.
I've read books by Jenny Colgan before, and I liked all of them. Just simple feelgood stories, but interesting enough to keep reading.
In "Rosie Hopkins' Sweet Shop of Dreams" Rosie temporarily moves from London to the country to help her great aunt Lilian sell her sweet shop and move to a home. It turns out the sweet shop hasn't been open for years, but to sell it for a good price (they need the money to pay for the home), she needs to get it in business again. Of course, that doesn't go really smoothly. There are some classic but funny 'city dweller moves to countryside' incidents, she meets a few interesting men and makes friends along the way. Through flashbacks, we also get a bit of insight into Lilian's past.
Such a sweet story! (pun unintended at first, but I kinda like it, so I decided to keep it).
