I will not be intimidated by a sweater! It may have the ugliest button holes in the universe (2 out of 3 of those little buggers are anyway) but I will concur the adult garment! That said, I might need to cheat on my February Lady for a little instant gratification knitting. Maybe a dishcloth or two. Or a fun summer scarf. Once I finish at least the yolk, of course. At least. My poor little craft-ADD mind is wandering just a bit. It is not being helped by the posts of lovely cross stitches that I’ve been seeing lately too. But I’m trying to hold it together to have a sweater for me. Someday.
Reading is less daunting and this week I finished the Little Women section and am into Good Wives. I also got a couple from the library (are you at all surprised?) First up is Below Stairs by Margearet Powell and boy does it make me grateful to live now rather than 100 years ago. It’s hard to believe that it was so recent that leaving school at 13 to go to work to help support your family was common. Or to enter “service” because your family could not afford to keep you any longer (at 15!) But it’s a really interesting memoir by a woman who was a kitchen maid in the 1920’s. And I may or may not be hearing Daisy’s voice in my head while I read it. 😉
And joining my fellow Yarn Alongers at small things today 🙂 Happy Wednesday!
