I am joining Ginny this week for her Wednesday Yarn Along. It really helps me to stay motivated!
First, I want to say that I finally got a photo of Adrian's Henley for my Ravelry project page. It looks a bit worn in the shot, which it has been.
I finished Gemma's Esprit Folk vest on Sunday, and I just love it! It is still a wee bit big on her, but that's good, because it will still fit her in the fall. It was an easy-peasy pattern to do, and I know I will do it again my Ravelry notes are here).
Right now I am working on this hat, which was supposed to be for me, but is much too small. I followed the directions and am even using worsted rather than dk weight yarn. I guess I must be an exceptionally tight knitter! Anyway, I love the pattern so much that I think I will give it another try casting on some extra stitches and using larger needles. This one is made from leftover yarn from Gemma's Tiny Tea Leaves, so she'll have a hat to go with it.
I am still making my way through The Fellowship of the Ring. I'm still at the Council of Elrond, and can't seem to get beyond it the past few nights; I've been so tired that I start to doze after a few pages. Generally, by the time I go to bed, I am pretty much ready to go to sleep!
A holy Ash Wednesday to you!
