(Sorry for the horrible picture, it has been so dark here in Oregon)
I have been quiet on the blog lately so I thought I would join in this week with the Yarn along with Ginny.
I just finished a pair of baby booties from the yarn left over from the easy baby cardigan. They turned out pretty cute. Although they seem a little big for a newborn so I don't think the sweater and the booties will be worn at the same time, but hey no big deal. The bootie pattern is called "Ruth's Perfect Baby Booties" and can be found here. How many times did I say booties? A lot!
I am still constantly knitting toddler fingerless gloves to sell, but am sort of in between projects right now. Still SLOWLY making progress on the star baby blanket, my October deadline came and went,oops ;).
I just finished reading A Knitter's Home Companion by Michelle Edwards. I checked it out from the library and finished it the same day. It is a quick read full of touching essays, recipes(mostly vegetarian too!) and a few knitting patterns that go along with her stories. I cried after reading almost every essay, it could be the pregnancy hormones to blame, but it is such a sweet book. I highly recommend it, and because of the recipes and patterns it would make a great gift for a knitter to come back to again and again.
I am also reading Women Who Run With the Wolves by Clarissa Pinkola Estes but making very slow progress. I am however enjoying it very much. I have seen it recommended on many blogs.
