After seeing The Snow Child on several yarn along posts over the past couple of weeks, I decided to check it out from our local library. How excited was I to pick it up Tuesday afternoon in time to read a few pages and capture a photo with my knitting for today's post! The opening line is simply delicious: "Mabel had known there would be silence." I'm hooked -- thanks ladies for the recommendation. :)
I mentioned last week that I needed to knit up some baby washcloths for several upcoming baby showers. The yarn I like to use for these is Bernat's CottonTots which is super soft. I'll be wrapping each washcloth with a miniature bar of mildly-scented homemade soap and will have several baby gifts ready for giving. (I'm thinking of listing some of these on my Etsy market; if you're interested, please leave a comment.)
In other knitting, I worked up a pink pair of my cabled mitts to check my pattern before sending it off to be tested this week. So exciting! Thanks for all the encouraging comments last week. :) I'm still trying to decide what to cast on next... maybe this or this or this??? I know, I know. I've got baby knitting on the brain. What can I say? My first grandbaby is due in FIVE weeks!!!
