Finding time again to Yarn along.....

807
Joining Ginny for the yarn along this week. I am currently knitting a mermaid tail for my new sweet baby girl. I found this pattern on Ravelry this past winter back when I was pregnant and didn't know what I was having yet. Part of me was secretly thrilled when she came out a girl simply cause I could make this for her...or not so secretly. I think I may have had a boy mermaid if things had turned out differently.
It is also a very fun knit, I love the scale pattern. It is fun to see it come together.

I am slowly reading(or falling asleep to) Wifey by Judy Blume. I found this book on a shelf at a thrift store for a dollar and was curious to read one of her adult books. I loved Judy Blume's children's books when I was a child. This book is about a housewife gone bad, or slutty it seems. I can't seem to read more than a page or too before I fall asleep.

What are you knitting? Have you read any good books lately?

The tail looks great! I am curious to find out what you think about Judy Blume's adult book. Like you, I read her a alot as a kid, but have read nothing for adults.

I love the color and the pattern! It almost, almost makes me wish for another one... ok... impulse gone. I might just knit one up for a photography prop though...
