Yarn Along

6:00 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it is time for the weekly yarn along.  I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share books and yarn!  I love this weekly update and I seem to have been a slacker of late.  I did a quick pair of fingerless mitts last week, but have mostly been working on Hanorah and my September square for the Ravelry group.  I thought once I was almost done with the group and come to find out I have to make a square for October too!  Ugh.  I just want to knit for myself.  It's ok, though, once I finish the September square I'm going to crochet a cute little square for the October person and then I'm done!  

Isn't this pink lovely?  I just received it in the mail from Quince and Co.  It's chickadee in pomegranate. It will become a baby sweater.  It is for the same new baby that I made the last Aviatrix for.  I am loving these non traditional pinks for a baby.

As for reading, I finished Girls in White Dresses.  All I can say was it was OK...ok not really.  Most of the main characters annoyed the crap out of me and I wanted to shake them and tell them they were idiots.  The book follows them from college to work to wedding showers (and bridesmaids dresses) to baby showers.  Maybe I don't get it because the world they were living in is not my world.

Now I'm reading a book by P. D. James called The Lighthouse.  I'm only a little way in so no opinion on it yet.  But I do love a good murder mystery.  I just downloaded a new Michael Connelly book onto the iPad.  It's called The Closers.  I'm trying to read all of the middle of the series books that I haven't read yet and now some things from the later books are making sense.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!
