So as the title suggests I am taking part in Story Skeins read along of Hook to Heal! by Kathryn Vercillo.
Now everybody who is taking part in this are doing it for their own reasons, I personally need something to center my mind. I’ve been having a chaotic time recently and my body is suffering under the stress of it all.
I’m going to use this as a chance to let it all go and relax. My biggest need is to learn how to channel the stress in a healthy way.
Now the read along starts on the 2nd of May and will run for 12 weeks. I’m not ambitious enough to think I’ll do all the exercises within the book but I am going to dedicate a couple of hours of ‘Me’ time a week to read the pages and do a couple of the exercises.
So in preparation I’ve got myself a new WIP bag from my local yarn shop, Sitting Knitting, a new project note book, some fine liners in an assortment of colours and sharpies and of course the book. Now I got it on my kindle as it will be quite portable for me, I do love a good paper book but my ever expanding collection is not getting a look in as i like to read in bed, usually with a small person beside me. Not ideal for late night reading 🙂
I’m excited about starting this with a lovely group of crocheters whether they are beginners or masters, it doesn’t matter because we are all taking this solo voyage together.

In other news, I am currently busy spinning the minis for Story Skeins rolag club whilst also attempting to finish myself some socks for myself. In the next month I fully intend on spinning myself a lovely stash of yarn to use for various projects including more socks. I may have a little knitted sock addiction but this is ok by the winter i will have fitted me and the three squiglettes out with many woolly socks!!
