Crafting and Reading



I have been knitting and frogging these wee sweaters for a couple weeks now, but it is all good because I think I finally got the colors the way I want them. I bought this year ages ago from Brambleberry Yarn to make wool diaper covers for Nuala. I never finished them, so I frogged the covers and washed and dried the yarn and waited... waited for the PERFECT project to make with this lovely yarn. And the Flax sweater is it! I love the pattern, the yarn is super dooper yummy, just wonderfulness. NOW all I need to do is make the sleeves! And a dear friend is going to help me pick up the stitches so I don't have big gaping holes in the underarms. So by this time next week I should be all finished! WOOHOO!
As for reading I powered through Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It is so much fun! I could hardly put it down, now I am waiting for book 2!

Very pretty and I do like the color combination, although I'm sorry you had to frog so much.

Wow! They look great! You knit beautifully!
I saw that movie and I didn't like it. I'm a Pollyanna, though.
