I’ve finished up the body of phoebe’s sweater, working on the front edging now. Once that is done, it will be onto sleeves. I’m surprised with how quickly it has gone! I haven’t been able to keep it a secret, trying it on her multiple times (it fits so nicely!), and it will be hard to wait till her birthday to give it to her when these chilly and often dreary November days are upon us.
I’m still reading We Took to the Woods, it seems to take me much longer to make it through books these days. Still, I carry on. This one, The Secret life of Sarah Hollenbeck, came in the mail last week for me to review. I’ve read the first few chapters, and it’s okay so far, but the jury is still out on whether or not I will love it. It’s the story of a woman with a broken marriage who begins writing steamy romance novels, which become wildly popular, and then she comes to know the Lord. The story then unfolds of how she deals with her past and the binding book contract she has even as she walks into a new future.

I do semi secret knits for my kids – they can see it being knit and I try it on them right to the point when I’m on the second sleeve and then it disappears into the ether as far as they’re concerned and they next see it as a properly finished cardie or jumper – it’s worked a treat at keeping the Christmas knitting a surprise!
