Wow, it’s been more than a week since I posted! So much else to do or so much else I should have been doing might be a better description but that might be another story. Not that reading or much knitting were on the list. I’ve gotta start somewhere though, right?
I’m sadly still working on my mom’s shawl. I was really really hoping to finish it before they left but just couldn’t pull it off. I am at least in the home stretch now. It’s good to be out of the stocking knit 😉 Another procrastination this week was picking a sweater pattern to make using yarn given to me by a friend from her mom’s stash. Yes, I might just be insane but I am going to attempt knitting myself a sweater. And I laid out the blocks to get back to work on the quilt for my friend who got married in October. About a month ago I moved around some furniture and set up the sewing machine permanently in the bedroom 🙂 We got a desk lamp for the table yesterday and now I just need a few minutes to sit down and get sewing.
There hasn’t really been anything going on on the reading front this week thanks to everything else going on but thanks to Christmas I do have a few new books I’m looking forward to. I got a couple quilting pattern books that I’ve been drooling over, looking forward to
finding making the time for working on some of them. And a book about the Grail history/myth. And One Thousand Gifts by Ann Voskamp and Memorize the Faith by Kevin Vost. While I debate which to crack first I might just take the slightly less ambitious road of reading Yarn Harlot by Stephanie Pearl-McPhee. It’s been patiently waiting for me to get to it for a while now and it has such nice wee chapters 🙂 And it should be a hoot.
But first it’s off to check in at small things and see what else has been going this week. Might have been a quiet week in other places too…
