Well, here we are at another Yarn Along (joining the fabulous Ginny) and I'm sitting here with the same old projects. The scarf and socks are both relatively close to being finished, but I need to just get them DONE already so I can move on to another, hopefully more inspiring, project. I did make a quicky little bookmark out of the red sock yarn, which I finished in a couple of short hours, but when I looked for it to take a picture, *poof* it was gone. I have my suspicious (ahem, Elizabeth) of who might have swiped it so maybe I'll get a picture of it soon.
I just wrapped up reading a few different books, including Come to the Edge, which was better than I expected, but I've returned them to the library so I don't have a photo. Finn and I just finished reading The Children of Noisy Village and we plan to start The Wind In The Willows today. I can't recommend either of those books highly enough. We love them and they have been read numerous times in our home. The Wind In The Willows edition we have is illustrated by Inga Moore, who draws the mostly lovely, ethereal and heart-warming illustrations. I prefer her illustrations in many of our favorite books.
I also have 2 projects waiting in the wings that don't have a good pattern yet. Maybe you can help? The blue worsted Malabrigo is going to be a hat for Elizabeth, but I just haven't found an inspiring hat pattern yet. I'm also looking for a boy-ish hat pattern for the green. They are both soft and gorgeous yarns, and I want to make a hat that really shows off the lovely color and texture of each yarn.
Until next week...
