I haven't participated in Ginny's "Yarn Along" over at Small Things in a while and I have really missed it. Sadly, there has been VERY little knitting time these days. I am hoping that as this set of report cards gets written, life will ease up for a while and I will be able to do some more. The local cable t.v. station is coming to film our "knitting guild" at the library on Thursday night, so I had to get something started.
Knitting - this is a cute hat/scarf combo that I found. The pattern is here. It's been easy to follow so far. I'm not 100% convinced on the colour for LB - I bought the yarn during Boxing Week and the store was crazy and I had both kids and the salewoman was less than efficient. I just grabbed the first thing that looked decent. I just hope it will fit his big head :-)
Reading - I've been steadily reading through the pile from the library, slipping in reading time when I can. I must admit, I've been really tired from the crazy pace at work and I don't often get far before my eyes get heavy. I do love Alexander McCall Smith. I was pondering how ironic that is, given that, especially in the Isable Dalhousie series, things wander off into philosophical ponderings, something that would drive me crazy in a conversation and yet I love it in his books.
I can't wait to see what everyone else is working on!
