Sheets sequel, borrowed from # hoopla. On my hook : Nessie shawl in a mix of BWM and Malabrigo wools. My colourway goal was to evoke Kambarang wildflowers on Noongar country. #litsycrafters

Set over a moment, or a day, or 2020, or a generation. This is a glimpse into what is like to not be able to breathe, and about searching for oxygen in the tiny moments of life and family.

My current read. A tricky one to pair with yarn, but I couldn't go past this hand dyed yarn by Shirsty Cat Designs, because it's called “The Void Stares Back“. Couldn't be more appropriate for this alt-history post-apocalyptic space mystery novel. #litsycrafters #booksandyarn

I read this YA graphic novel so you don't have to. It's bad, y'all. Sexist tosh and a super clumsy, un-nuanced critique of the role of technology in teenager's lives. Skip it.

On to the VERY LAST of my #booked2022 books, for the journalist-author prompt. Kambarang (second spring) has hit with a bang here in Perth.

On my hook : I decided I needed a new top for my son's graduation recital, so I whipped out this glitter gradient, Sultan Deluxe Shine. #litsycrafters

Dyed and Buried | Livia Day

I love Livia Day's Tasmanian cosy murders! This one centres around a mystery wedding dress designer, an upcycling/dyeing boutique, a hit-and-run, a dye bath used for other than its intended purposes, and a former wedding planner trying to put her life back together in the wake of her criminal husband. Can't wait for the next one, Drop Dead in Red. Only a month to wait!

Lizpixie This sounds brilliant! I‘ll have to look up her other cozies too🙌 #stacked 2mo
Lauredhel @Lizpixie I love the Café La Femme series! Some of the rest of her work (as Tansy Rayner Roberts) has a cosy-ish feel too even though not mystery genre. 2mo

A fun alt-Victorian fairy-gothic novella. A fairy governess, 2 magical kids, a pair of travelling carnival magicians, problematic love potions, and malevolent fae. Good for fans of Burgis and Kingfisher.

Looking forward to more.
Also, that cover! I read this for a "make your own prompt" of the #booked2022 reading challenge... and check out this pairing! The yarn is Sultan Deluxe from Hobbii, in Imperial Purple.
