On the needles: This is still going to be my knitting project for the next few weeks; I’m running out of things to say, except that I AM making progress! I’m working my way through the body shaping/decreases right now.
Off the bookshelf: I’m about halfway through Storm in the Village, the final book included in the Miss Read collection, Chronicles of Fairacre. This is probably my least favorite of the three books included in the “omnibus”, but charming nonetheless. Some of the background information/character history from the previous two books is repeated in this volume, probably to help readers who might be picking up an individual copy, rather than the collection, orient themselves to the series. Storm in the Village focuses less on the day-to-day school life of the previous two books, and more on the rumor that a large housing development is to be built in the village—a possibility which holds ominous consequences for the school and the village at large.
