I am joining in with Ginny's Wednesday Yarn Along again this week...always such a source of inspiration.
Una just had a birthday on Monday, and one of her gifts was a new slouchy hat, which, I am afraid, may have turned out a bit too slouchy due to the rather thick cotton yarn (does stretch a bit, and I am unused to knitting with cotton, having only used it for dishcloths and one baby vest in the past).
Gemma has very sensitive skin and always seems to be too hot. Really, it will be 66 degrees in the house, and she will be saying, "I hot, Mama!" and peeling off her clothes. So I am trying to get used to using cotton for her sake. I am using the Mini Chic pattern once again, but am turning it into a pullover.
Yes, I am slow slow slow with the reading! I guess I am nearly halfway through The Two Towers now, and am reading The Hobbit aloud to the boys (isn't that the most awful depiction of Gollum and Bilbo ever?) I have also been reading a bit of The ABC's of Nature, a thrift store find, here and there.
So, what have you been reading and knitting this week?
