Amazingly I got a few rows knit this week. Really amazing because if you remember I picked up 216 stitches last week – well, the next line of the pattern was the knit 1, yarn over to end. So now we’re talking about 400-something stitches! It feels good to be making progress (and thankfully there are only 10 rows in this section.)
This I just have to share. A friend sent me the link to a free pattern and it is entirely too cute to not share. I checked out the other patterns too – ridiculously adorable. Really, you should check them out.
The reading front was also pretty amazing this week. I finished The Union Quilters. I can’t help but read about the Civil War and marvel that anyone survived. Marching from Frederick, MD to Gettysburg, PA, it’s only something like 30-some miles of lovely hilly countryside. But in July. Wearing wool. Carrying all your gear. Having not eaten properly in weeks or months. And marching right into battle. Maybe I’m just a big wuss but that is remarkable.
And I started a new novel yesterday – The Little Women Letters by Gabrielle Donnelly. It “explores the imagined lives of Jo March’s descendants.” So far pretty good (50 pages in.) It’s a nice blend of historical fiction and modern through finding Grandma Jo’s letters in the attic.
I can’t seem to share a photo today because I’m using all of my space for it??? Anyone know anything about this? I don’t have any photos saved in Picasa or anywhere else and I do not want to have to pay for more storage (what a racket!)
So now to link up with Ginny.
