For this week's Yarn Along, I actually have several works-in-progress. My box of yarn for Christmas present knitting arrived recently and I've started on a couple of those works. I also just began this white shrug for a friend who needed one for her little girl. I recently finished reading Wonder aloud to Elizabeth and Finn. Paulie's finished it and Philip is reading it now. We all agree it's one of our favorite middle grade reads that we've read in a while. I hope all of my kids will benefit from reading this exploration of humanity, courage, and kindness.
Other works-in-progress: a sport weight version of Mr. Pitt's socks, which I plan to make notes about on Ravelry, and a balaclava for Philip (he picked out the bright green yarn which will certainly make him...ahem, noticeable, if not frog-like)
As I was trying to take photos for Yarn Along this morning, our resident cat jumped up for some petting action. We didn't actually *get* a cat, but this one has apparently adopted us. For several days now, it has been showing up around 8 am and staying until after 9 pm. The kids go out on the deck and pet it occasionally and ask if we can keep it. I assume it's not lost since it does disappear for the evening although it tries to come into our house anytime we open the door. He/she is quite cute!
