Yarn Along: July

Yarn Along

details | July links

On the first Wednesday of each month, knitters, and a few crocheters as well, link up and share what they are knitting along with what they are reading. The link up remains open all month long.



With a french theme for Paris in July, I pulled out my mini loom from a past Mollie Makes magazine craft kit to do some weaving with scrap yarn. Decided to turn the piece into a mini chic purse with macrame purse strap and affixed a cameo-like button.

Then, finished a Mollie Makes hand sewn zippered purse kit with a french exclamation. And, from a stationery stitchery kit, I embroidered a french greeting. et voilĂ !


Paris by Edward Rutherford
-Historical, France, Paris | Goodreads

From Edward Rutherfurd, the grand master of the historical novel, comes a dazzling epic about the magnificent city of Paris. Moving back and forth in time, the story unfolds through intimate and thrilling tales of self-discovery, divided loyalty, and long-kept secrets. As various characters come of age, seek their fortunes, and fall in and out of love, the novel follows nobles who claim descent from the hero of the celebrated poem The Song of Roland; a humble family that embodies the ideals of the French Revolution; a pair of brothers from the slums behind Montmartre, one of whom works on the Eiffel Tower as the other joins the underworld near the Moulin Rouge; and merchants who lose everything during the reign of Louis XV, rise again in the age of Napoleon, and help establish Paris as the great center of art and culture that it is today. With Rutherfurd’s unrivaled blend of impeccable research and narrative verve, this bold novel brings the sights, scents, and tastes of the City of Light to brilliant life.

Working my way little by little through this.
