Joining Ginny today for yarn along . . . .
I am attempting to make some Easter basket gifts. It turns out that I can't make my first choice knitted lamb from Itty Bitty Toys. I mean I could, but that would mean I would have to find some boucle yarn at this late date. Given my proclivity for procrastination and indecision, I thought it best to change things up. Perhaps I'll try another lamb pattern or some Spring Chicks or Easter eggs. For now, I am working on felted balls from Itty Bitty Toys. So it's back to the dpns for me.
Right now we are reading The Four-Story Mistake. This is an utterly charming book. I love the words the author uses like "veils, plumes, plasticine, revolting, and whimsical"-great word fun for the kiddos. Also the setting in the book is just as charming-a house with a cupola (I've always wanted one), a brook in the backyard and a child who plays Brahms. I also love that the children in the book have such vibrant imaginations. There is much talk of pirates, the Gobi Desert, Michelangelo and a ghost in the dumbwaiter. It's a delightful book.
What have you been reading and making this week?
