I find myself trying to get to bed early these days so I can read a bit of The Snow Child which I am just loving. :) AnnaLynn and I finished Beautiful Girlhood Tuesday afternoon -- such a wonderful read aloud to go through with my girl! I cannot recommend this book enough if you've got a daughter between the ages of 11 and say 14 or so.
On the needles is Kelly Herdrich's in threes which I'm knitting with an extra soft wool blend by Lion Brand. This project is just about finished which is good since the daughter-in-law's baby shower is this Saturday! Worsted weight is nice for quick projects, don't you think? I also cast on the first of Kelly Patla's Perfect-fit Newborn Socks but don't have more than a few rows completed. Such a contrast between my two projects: worsted weight and size 8 needles for the in threes and fingering weight and size 1 for the socks. I guess it's good to keep things interesting.
How about you? What books are you reading? What's growing in your yarn garden? Please share in the comments and join me at Ginny's.
