Yarn Along-- Noro Milo complete
I'm with Ginny again this week, showing off the completed size 6 Milo for Dominic. Seeing as it is to be a gift, I tried it on his diminutive 7 year old brother, who is only a shade bigger than he is, and it is a good fit. I have my scant notes on Ravelry, and last night was looking for what to cast on next. I need to order some yarn for the striped mitts Una wants as well as some black and gray merino for the boys' hats. I am trying to decide between Ginny's Sunday Sweater and a few baby sweaters for babies I know...decisions, decisions!
As for my reading, I finished the youth fiction I was reading last week, Black as Night, and now Sebastian is reading it. It's really good, and I think Regina Doman is fantastic with plot and character development. Currently, I am three chapters into Cold Mountain. We have been on a long Civil War kick, starting with just general Civil War history, moving to the south, and soon to be concentrating just on Tennessee and Kentucky. I am not yet blown away by this novel--I have not yet been able to develop much feeling for any of the characters--but I will give it a chance.
Hoping to stop by and see what's on your needles and nightstand, too!
