Crafting and reading
I have been wanting to make Fiona another Oliver and S simple skirt for weeks and weeks now. They literally take no time, maybe an hour and a half (and that is because I am so slow), and in the end you are rewarded with clothing! I can't remember what the fabric is, I know I won it on a blog give away awhile ago. It is a jersey cotton and just so soft. Fiona loves the skirt, and so do I.
I finished up Fiona's socks, the ones that will match Nuala's leg warmers... but I have no photo of them. I started on a wrap that I have plans to send to one of my cousins in Oregon. It is in the yarn I had planned on using for Audrey's Shalom sweater this past winter. But I just didn't like how it was turning out. Plus I have to be honest... we live in Arizona we really don't need wool sweaters, but my cousin could probably use a nice wool wrap. I am using Quince and Company "Puffin" in glacier. I am not a huge fan of this yarn, maybe other Quince and company yarn is super fabulous but I have not been very impressed, considering how everyone raves about their stuff. Maybe it is just the Puffin yarn.
I am trying to read "Angela's Ashes", but between doing my reading for my studies and just life the books seem to take a backseat. So far it is good, and I promised Audrey I would read it, so I shall.
