It's Yarn Along time again! Ginny has a new arrival at her house, so I don't know if the official Yarn Along is happening, but I am actually knitting and reading so I'll post mine anyway.
I posted about the sweater earlier, but it looks a little different today, since I had to rip out all of the short rows for the body. Somewhere between my drug-addled and illness-addled brain there was not a lot of accurate counting going on.
I have all the correct numbers now, so I should be able to carry on well from here.
The Elder and I have been reading Anne of Green Gables at bedtime. We started it a long time ago, but it went missing (ahem, under her bed, like mother like daughter) so we were reading other things.
This weekend saw the cleaning of the kids' bedroom, however, so we found the book and we picked up right where we left off.
There is magic in this story of simple people in a small town in Canada. The language never fails to enchant me. Lucy Maud Montgomery's descriptions of Avonlea and the surrounding woods and seasides are so vivid. I forever find myself daydreaming about Prince Edward Island and a little cottage near the sea. I hope that the Elder finds as much beauty and joy in Anne's story as I have.
Are you reading or knitting anything fun this week?
