Well, it definitely was too ambitious to think I could knit this little cardigan before Easter and also with only one skein of yarn. It has been really enjoyable to knit, and I’m waiting for another skein to arrive in the mail so i can finish it. Sweet Wren wore her camilla babe sweater for Easter instead, which was really beautiful on her. I can’t express how much fun it is and how satisfying to be able to make clothes for my children. I am really wanting to learn how to sew, so I can sew them some dresses, too.
I picked up book two in the Canada West series by Janette Oke, When Comes the Spring (affiliate link). It seems appropriate for this time of year, hey? I remember my older sister reading the series when we were growing up but I don’t think I ever read it. I read the first book sometime last year and have been watching the latest episodes of “When Calls the Heart,” which really seems to be nothing like the books. Both are enjoyable, but I’m hoping the books are better, seeing how the characters and plot is really entirely different thus far from the tv show. I’m finding little time to read, but am squeezing in a few pages when I nurse in the evenings. It’s good to have a happy simple novel to read.
