|doll blanket and readings|
Well, this week I haven't been too terribly productive. I am waiting for my yarn to come from KnitPicks, it is taking FOREVER! (Well, it feels that way, anyway.) I am planning on making Fiona the Tomten jacket by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Mike got me one of her books for my birthday, and it has the pattern in it... ok not really a pattern just some weird random directions. Honestly I am a bit scared to start knitting it. I have no idea how much to cast on or when to do certain things. I guess I will have to knit a swatch (I have avoided doing that up to this point) and then just sort of wing it. Hopefully my yarn will get here before I leave town with the littles for the weekend, so I will have something to do when they are all engaged with something other than me.
I did knit a booby hat for my sister in law, so when my nephew is born he will have a cute hat. LOL And I started knitting a doll blanket with some left over yarn I had, just something to sort of pass the time.
I am reading Ina May's breastfeeding book and I got my copy of Taproot in the mail (finally!) and I am just eating both of those up. Which is nice because I haven't found too much stuff that has sparked my interest lately.
