  • Oooo, I do love that book! I didn’t realize that it was the first of a trilogy when I read it and practically howled at the moon in frustration when it ended & left the rest of the story untold. Thank goodness – redemption! More books to follow makes me a happy knitter!

  • Versailles. OMG I can’t wait as well

    Happy travels

  • When I read your recommendation to my partner-in-TV-watching, he thought I was saying “Wool Fall.” After all, this is Mason Dixon Knitting!

    • “Wool Fall: when scientists decide to genetically modify sheep using cashmere goat DNA.”

  • I am so jealous that you are going to the Edinburgh yarn festival!! I went the last two years and it is one of my favorites. Have so much fun!

  • Thank you for the Wolf Hall suggestion as I have enjoyed others that you’ve given. Have a great trip; safe travels!

  • I’m with you on Wolf Hall. I have the book, the audio book, and the DVD. Now if she would just come out with volume 3, The Mirror and the Light, our knitting would be complete, in a deeper as well as project-wise sense!!

  • I love it, too! It may be time for a re-watch. Thanks for the recommendation.

    • I always rewatch. And rewatch. And count down the days for season two!

  • I have been waiting and waiting and waiting for season two. I can never ever get sick of watching over and over and over again. Obsessed. Praying season two to come sooner than later. But seriously- it shouldn’t take this long….right?

  • I didn’t know this was streaming! Can’t wait to watch it. Just finished “The Last Kingdom” and I highly recommend it ~ the early days of England forming in the 800’s.

  • We all enjoy book…..currently reading….state of war by James risen….always like to be enlightened

  • Mark Rylance is so quietly mesmerizing in Wolf Hall. I re-watch this every time it comes on our local PBS station. Oh, and Damien Lewis and Claire Foy aren’t bad, either! Finally, I can’t wait to hear/see your report from the Edinburgh Yarn Festival!

  • Loved the first two books ( Wolfe Hall and Bring Up the Bodies) and have been impatiently waiting for the third. Of course we know how it ends, but still… Safe travels and happy knitting!

  • I fell in love with Mark Rylancecwarching Wolf Hall.
    Safe travel and good knitting!

  • Considering how much knitting you want to get done en route to Edinburgh, in a perfect world I, anyway, would book a transatlantic voyage. Five days of rarely interrupted knitting and yet a sense of great progress both in knitting and in nautical miles. Alas, my world isn’t perfect:(. So I will be waiting eagerly for your post-Edinburgh account.

  • Totally agree with your take on Wolf Hall — the show is so much more absorbing, perhaps because of Mark Rylance’s briliant and subtle performance as Cromwell.
    I was doing an i-cord bind off (for several episodes) for my Drachenfels while watching on 13/WNET Sunday night.
    Going to work wearing a cowl knit on tiny needles begun in Israel and finished in Manchester, England. (where I could sit in the flat and watch BBC and iplayer ….)
