I am joining Ginny's Yarn Along this week having wondered whether or not she would be hosting one this week, as she is a few days past her due date now!
No new reading for me, as I still am reading the book on Lourdes (slow going--at this rate I shall be reading it all summer!), but I will be going through Una's books soon to find a few read-alouds, since our school year is winding down, and most of the workbooks are finished up.
I finished sewing the buttons on Gemma's summer sweater yesterday while watching another hour of the 3-hour Sense and Sensibility from Netflix (Ravelry notes here). I own the wonderful movie version with Emma Thompson and (sigh) Alan Rickman, but there are things I do like about this version, the more subtle characters, for one. In the movie some of the characters are a bit overplayed, if you know what I mean.
(the bruise on her forehead is finally fading!)
I have cast on for a big project, a pullover for my big boy. He is ten, but I am knitting a size 12, hoping that he can wear it for more than one winter. I am knitting it in this very boy colorway called "Forest Blue". The yarn is a lovely merino from Italy.
If you like to knit and read, stop by Small Things and join in! If there is a Yarn Along next week, Ginny's new baby may be modeling some hand-knits!
