I did decide to cast on Meritence for myself, but I am probably going to have to start the other project before I get too far done with My Meritence. Oh my Giddy Aunt is this pattern a headache! Its all correct and it works just fine but the way it’s written requires so much mental gymnastics I dread picking it up and figuring out where I’m at! I’m sure it will all get easier once I’m past the armpits and onto the looong stockinette section.
I have just finished reading The Forgotten Sister: Mary Bennet’s Pride and Prejudice. For years I have been avoiding Jane Austen spin offs after an unfortunate run in with Pride, Prejudice and Zombies (followed by a sad encounter with Death Comes to Pemberly) but I actually really enjoyed The Forgotten Sister! It is a first person narrative but set against the back drop of Pride and Prejudice it feels much broader because you already know what was happening the room next door! I actually didn’t believe the love story but the rest of it was magnificent!
