tending my yarn garden...
Seems the only thing I'm able to find time to blog about these days is my knitting and reading, and that only once each week. Sigh. Life is full of all things wonderful right now (like the Steelers' win on Saturday...), so that's ok. There just aren't enough hours in the day to attend to all the things I'd like to, so I'll be happy to sneak this post in and that will have to be that. :)
Knitting: I was rushing to finish my dad's Steelers beanie (last week's secret knit!) on Friday morning before he arrived for a weekend visit and was unsure about adding the pompom, but when Anna and I saw a highschooler in Battle Ground wearing a sports-team beanie with a pompom, I figured if it's cool enough for a local highschooler, then my dad is certainly cool enough for a pompom! In other knitting, I've just about wrapped up the reworking of my 1-2-3 baby beanie and hope to release the updated version in the next week or so, time permitting (anyone interested in a quick test knit for me?). Once that's done I'll be picking up my neglected mobius and cowl...
Reading: New to me this week is At the Water's Edge...I'm not even through chapter one and I'm hooked. Still reading Face to Face and Bede and am also enjoying the Smicksburg Tales series which is super light but uplifting and makes me want to start a knitting circle!
How about you? What's on your needles?
