The rectangle for the Eleanor Shrug is almost finished. After I crochet three more pattern repeats (six rows), I have to sew up the sides and add an edging around the outside. I am looking forward to wearing it.
The book I am still reading is "Daughter of Twin Oaks." So far, the daughter, Jesselyn, has dressed up like a boy to get the remaining thoroughbread horses away from their plantation in Kentucky, to keep them from being seized by soldiers in both armies during the Civil War. The story is mainly about what happens to her and her freed slaves that accompany her on the journey.
I am sharing this post at the links on this page.
