Yarn Along

6:00 AM

It's Wednesday again and that means it's time for the weekly yarn along.  I am joining with Ginny and everyone to share what we've been reading and working on yarn wise.  Corrine's preschool is doing their annual fundraiser in March.  Each family is responsible for selling raffle tickets and for finding to donations for a silent auction.  I decided to knit an Aviatrix.  I made a six month size for a little girl.  Given that I've made a gazillion of these hats by now, this one flew off the needles.  I started it last Thursday night and finished the flower while watching the superbowl.  It's hard to tell by the pictures, but the flower button in the flower is lime green.  I think it looks awesome.  
On the book front, I am about halfway through The Monuments Men.  It really is a fascinating book.  I never gave it a thought when I was in Europe touring many historical sights.  The movie is based on the book and comes out February 7th.  The Monuments Men were a group of men (and women) who were pretty much on the front lines trying to save the historical monuments and the priceless art from destruction by Allied forces.   They faced many difficulties to do a job they believed in, one simply being it was war.  While they were an official group it was hard for them to get the supplies they needed to do their job and they had to work with the  bureaucracy of the army.   If you like history and World War II history at that, absolutely pick up this book.  It's a whole different side to the war.

Happy Yarn Along Wednesday!

    I didn't know Monuments Men was a book too. Alex and I have been talking about going to the movies to see it, and I Never go to the movies. It looks like a good one.
