Joining the lovely Ginny again for Yarn Along, I've been furiously knitting all week on a sweet little sweater for Elizabeth's American Girl doll. Elizabeth's birthday is on Friday so I'm getting down to the wire! The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll Multi in Princess. The entire sweater will use less than 1 ball (at $3.99, woohoo!) and I'll probably have enough to make a little AG hat as well. The reading selection is actually Elizabeth's as well. She and I have been reading The Mother Daughter Book Club together in the evenings. Not high literature, but an entertaining read, and I'm hoping it will lead to our reading Little Women together (the book subject of the club). Elizabeth has really enjoyed reading this, and actually asked for the second book in the series for her birthday.
I also wanted to include some moments of happiness from our home over the last week, also inspired by Ginny's "bits of joy". I could use a little more focus on the joyous moments of life as well.
