An Epic scarf, cast on for an epic road trip, knit during a move of epic proportions. But I am epically pleased with how it has turned out, “design elements” and all. I also want to let you know that I did not finish in the eleventh hour before writing this post. Nope – finished Monday night, wove tails while watching Germany demolish Brazil, and got it photographed during daylight. And last night cast on, knit, ripped out, and cast on again for another project. (And yes, that means my February Lady is languishing in my knitting basket still. Poor pretty sweater. Maybe I’ll get it finished for the fall, when it will actually be cool enough to wear it.)
This week I also finished Beatrix Potter’s Gardening Life by Marta McDowell. I really enjoyed it, although it did make miss the seasons. The book is made up of three sections – a biography of Beatrix Potter, a year in her garden, and last what the areas discussed in the book are like today for tourists to visit. Makes for an interesting look at both author and her works.
Now the trouble is to pick something else to read. Other than The Little Oratory, of course. The only trouble I’m having with that one is that the size and shape of the book make it difficult to read while nursing a fidgety toddler, which happens to be when I do most of my reading. So a part of me is looking for a nice, fluffy read. But there is also a part of me wondering just where our C.S. Lewis books are packed away… Decisions, decisions. 😉
Happy Wednesday! Happy Yarn Along!
