I split for sleeves on Phoebe’s birthday sweater last night (finally!) and I’m a little nervous that at this rate it’s probably unlikely I will finish this in time for her birthday later this month. It’s just slow going, all-over color work with fingering weight yarn. However, it will be so pretty in the end. Can you see the horses on the yoke? I’m hoping now that that part of the pattern is done, the body section will go a little faster (the chart is a bit simpler).
I grabbed Elli and the Harp Maker while at the library yesterday. When we are there I rarely have time to look for books for myself but I saw this one as I was walking to the children’s section and it caught my eye. I started it last night, and realized it’s been a long time since I’ve ready some fiction. It was so nice to fall into a story. I don’t know much about it and not sure if I will love it, but it was good light reading so far. Do you have any fiction recommendations for me? I’m in need of some, I realize.
