Back again for Ginny's Yarn Along. I confess that I do look forward to it each week, and work to make progress on my knitting and reading, only so that I don't have the same old books and projects each week.
As you can see, I am still working on the Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan for Gemma. I have made some progress in the last week, but not so much as I'd have liked. In the past two evenings, I have only knit 3 or 4 rows before my eyes began to close and I had to call it a night. But it is the main body of the cardi, now, meaning that it is mindless knitting--I like mindless knitting, as it permits me to wool-gather (pun not intended, but appreciated) as I knit.
I had hoped to have something else on the needles as well this week, but my order from WEBS hasn't shipped yet. I am so excited! My mom gave me a generous birthday check back in November and another for Christmas, telling me that she hoped I could use it to buy "a little wool". Well, with the budget tight, the money was spent on other things--like food and gas. So I have been waiting for our tax return to come in, that I might pick out "a little wool." And I have. Enough for about 4 projects, all of it beautiful and on sale!
I am still making my way through Frank Sheed's Theology and Sanity. It is excellent reading, and I love Sheed's style, very casual and down-to-earth, even though illustrating abstract concepts and truths, but I find that since I am so worn out in the evenings, I must read slowly to digest it, and frequently re-read a sentence or two to make sure I got it.
I have picked out our next read-aloud, The Bronze Bow. Una, who has read every book in this house and most of the youth section at our local library, said it is very good, and that the boys should enjoy it.
Looking forward to seeing what everyone is doing this week!
