It has been both a good knitting and reading week. I finished my very squishy, cozy sweater on Saturday morning. The weather was cool, so I immediately donned it without waiting for blocking. Slightly oversized and boxy it fits great and feels so comfortable. The pattern was Bedford, and I will take some photos to share this week if we dip back down into cooler temperatures. For now here is a mirror self portrait in bad light.
After finishing the sweater I immediately cast on for a baby gift. My youngest brother and his wife are expecting their third little girl any day now. I am behind the game as far as gift giving goes, but hope she holds on a bit longer. Of course, my sister in law is not loving that idea. I am knitting with a gorgeous blue cotton yarn which should work for baby and mom.
I am also referring a lot to Naturally Fun Parties for Kids; Creating Handmade, Earth-Friendly Celebrations for All Seasons and Occasions. I was given this book by the publisher to take a look at and review. I was eager to get it, since I really like Ice Pop Joy also by Anni Daulter. I will be reviewing it in full later this week, so stay tuned.
What have you been up to this week with your knitting and reading. As always I am reading and knitting along with Ginny on this Wednesday.
