Yarn Along6:00 AM
It's Wednesday again and that mean another week has flown by! No really it means it is time for the weekly yarn along. I'm joining with Ginny and everyone to share what's on the needles or hooks and what we've been reading. I'm excited to share my completed Helena! This simple baby sweater has taken me two months to complete. I'm sure if I had worked on it straight through it would have taken me far less time. The pattern was super easy and once I got the lace pattern memorized it flew off the needles. That being said, I'm not really all that pleased with the way it turned out. Actually I'm not pleased with the trim piece around the front sides and the neck and the tie placement. Perhaps I'm just being (k)nitpicky?
I just started reading The Monuments Men (which is also a movie). I have always been fascinated by World War II and this is a completely different take on what was happening in Europe during the war. Corrine and I have also been reading Katie loves the Kittens and Katie and the Puppy Next Door by John Himmelman. Katie is a (I think) Jack Russell Terrier and her person brings home three little kittens and Katie loves those kittens so much... We checked the books out from the library and have renewed them to their limit. I returned them after explaining to C that maybe another kid would like to read about Katie. We were at the library last Friday and she was drawn to them on the shelf. We checked them out again.
Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!
