Yarn Along {Irish Scarf and A Pride and Prejudice spin off}

This week I am joining the yarn along over at Small Things!
I've gotten back into the crocheting mood lately, after discovering a delightful little yarn shop in Tucson and visiting it several times, as well as getting together with some lovely lady friends and knitting and crocheting over a pot of tea. There is nothing like chatting and crocheting with friends on a winter day with a warm Linkcup of tea to sip.

This week I am working on my "Irish pride" scarf - a skinny scarf in the colors of the Irish flag.So far I just have the green stripe, I am just about finished, maybe another five inches on this last row, and then I will go onto the white stripe.
I am reading a book called the Darcy Cousins by Monica Fairview. I really enjoyed the prequel to it - The Other Mr. Darcy which is a spin off of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. I'm not sure if I like this one yet, and I'm half way through. I don't dislike it, but I'm just not sure if I like it yet, if that makes any sense at all - but I am withholding further judgement until I complete the book. I don't really read fan sequels, I'm too much a purist, but I did enjoy the Other Mr. Darcy a lot, and I hope this one turns out as enjoyable!

Thanks for stopping by,
