Joining Ginny for this week’s Yarn Along.
My goodness how the last week sure flew on by me! I’m so busy catching up that I never got another post published after my last Yarn Along. March is going crazy fast for me right now. I need it to slow down a little. We’ve got lots of birthdays in March including little Gabriel’s at the end of the month. Lots to get ready for!
I just finished Gabriel’s Milo vest yesterday while he napped. When he got up I was so excited to show it to him and have him try it on. Then, wouldn’t you know, the little guy decided to be a stinker and refused to try it on. Crushed my heart. I’m sure he will wear it in a few days– if I don’t make a big deal of it. He probably knew I’d chase after him with my camera if he put it on!
I’ve been steadily knitting away at my Weekend Shawl. Only three more rows to go then I begin the second (and final) lace chart. I can’t wait to finish this one and get it blocked. I’m loving it so much right now. My goal is to be done by the end of the week. It is destined to be a gift and the deadline is rapidly approaching!
My fiction reading is still slow going. I can never seem to tear myself from the nonfiction books. I recently received a copy of The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton through Paperback Swap and I’m hoping I can start it this week. I have read mixed reviews on it. Has anyone else read it? Would you give it a thumbs up or down?
I look forward to reading all of your Yarn Along posts. Hopefully it will not take me another week before I blog again!
