Yarning Along with Ginny:
I find that the knitting that has been consuming my time lately hasn’t been for me. I finished the gloves (post here) for my friend Pat, and she loved them. They will be just what she needs to keep her hands and arms warm during the coming cold nights.
They washed up beautifully. The yarn plumped up and got even softer. I am very happy with them!
I’ve also been working on a pair of little hats for my friend Toni. Her sister is due any day with her second son and as I never got around to knitting for his big brother either, I thought a pair of matching wool hats was in order.
I love the bright blue with the black! I was hoping to have these done to give to her today but the weekend was busy busy busy and I haven’t had any time to work on them! They will be my project for the coming week.
I’m back in a bit of a reading slump. I was enjoying Mister Max, but it’s on my phone, and I am trying to avoid my phone right before bed. I seem to be sleeping better when I don’t stare at the back lit screen for an hour before I shut my eyes. I need to get going on The Snow Child, our book club pick for this month, but for now I’m reading Dealing with Dragons, a YA fiction that The Teen recommended to me. It’s a fun read, part of a series, and I think I might just read them all.
What’s on your needles this week? I’m hoping to have time to pop over and say hi later today!
