My new needles finally came. But I’ve been focused on finishing the quilt in time for Bigger’s birthday so I haven’t even moved what I have knit onto the new ones. The good news is that I really should be able to finish it today or tonight. I finished the ties and trimmed the edges and even pinned it for binding last night. So sewing the binding is all that is left. Maybe I’ll even get it done during Baby Girl’s nap and I can get back to knitting tonight while I catch up on Downton Abbey. In other good news, the slow order with the new needles also had the beautiful button for the Shalom.
My book pile has also grown this week (now that’s a surprise now, isn’t it?) I’m trying to finish Mrs. Lincoln’s Rival but it’s slow going. I am determiend to finish it because maybe it gets more intersting. But it has the feel that the author didn’t want any of her research to go to waste. I think some of the others in my pile will be lighter reads so I should be able to feel a little more accomplished once I get to those.
Happy Wednesday! Happy Yarn Along!
