Joining Ginny for yarn along . . . .
I am seriously having a spoiled, first-world problem which in themselves are the best kind to have. I am still fretting over what to make next. I received some beautiful yarn and a book from my dear friends. One of these dear friends is Julie over at Ninja Woman-artist, author/illustrator extraordinaire. She gave me some yummy yarn (super soft mission falls in a beautiful raspberry colorway) and this book. My other friend Heather also gave me some awesome yarn (maddy tosh that I will be using only pour moi; the kids can just forget it this go 'round). Soooo I am thinking some mitts for me in the m.tosh, and perhaps something else for me in the raspberry yarn, and maybe the denim pinafore from the book for my Eden who is always asking for her own yarn. She has been asking me to make something for her for a while. Not being the fastest knitter, I need to get started.
You can guess my reading material-my new book and this one. I am also "reading" Ravelry. When I am not reading my knitting books, I am reading Monet in the '90's, Then There Were Five, and finishing up Art & Fear. Last but not least, I am almost finished reading Naturally Fun Parties for Kids. I am over the moon over this book. It guides you (with a prep time-line no less) in making cool fairy, spa and beach parties for kids. It is a treasure to say the least. I'll have a full review up soon!
What are you making and reading this week?
