Yesterday when the mail arrived I was so happy to see my Jimmy Beans order had arrived. So much lovely squishy wooly, silky, bambooy, goodness. The yarn for Fiona's doll sling is here, and a bunch of lovely purple wool. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with my purple yarn but I have been toying with maybe making MYSELF a sweater. Maybe an Annabel Cardi. When Tracey at Clover knitted up 5 of them for Christmas, well I was inspired. I am not a "selfish" knitter, I tend to knit for others, but I must admit it is a bit disheartening when all the work is for not, well it makes one want to be a "selfish" knitter. I know I will wear the cardi, socks, shawls, mittens, hats, etc. The only person I knit for at the moment who wears what I make is Fiona... and to be honest sometimes she doesn't have a choice. LOL Being not yet two, sometimes mama just picks out the sweater vest and leg warmers, and warm wooly hat.
On the bedside table is Flight Behavior, I am still enjoying this book a lot. Barbara Kingsolver is such a beautiful writer. And I picked up my copy of Buddhism for Mothers. Someone in the Yarn Along last week was reading it and that reminded me that maybe I could use a refresher. We have been having some pre-teen tensions as of late, nothing too major, but this mama can use all the help she can get.
So, what are you knitting and reading?
