On my needles... Something different
I set Jessica's scarf aside this week to work on my beanie stash for the upcoming holiday bazaar season. The yarn is Bernat's Mosaic in "calypso" -- what fun colors! I love the way they blend one into the other and how knitting a beanie in two different sizes caused the striping to work up a little differently on each.
I also set aside The Help this week; I'll finish it, Lord willing, in the next couple days. Can't wait to see how it ends!
Beowulf is our first read aloud of the new school year--what a way to start! We are looking forward to reading our way from the fall of Rome through the Middle Ages this year; there is so much excellent historical fiction for this time period that it's often difficult to decide what not to read.
Sharing at the Yarn Along :)
