After finishing up a quick little knit, the Zuzu Petal cowl (that I'll use for someone later), my full attention is back on plugging away on my Chickadee sweater. I'm now at the body and it is pretty slow! I really enjoyed working the yoke though. Stranded work used to scare me but now I find it fun.
Under my sweater is my pile of books that I've been rotating around. My sweet friend gave us a great book, Extra Yarn, which has been repeatedly requested. I'm still finishing up Simplicity Parenting and Organized Simpliclity. It really shouldn't take this long to read them but both make you want to put them down and do something n o w. I also just finished The No Brianer Wardrobe. Silly to buy a book on dressing oneself at this age but I have the hardest time looking "put together". I just can't seem to be able to look like "that" and be on the floor playing with a precocious almost 2 year old, then kicking a soccer ball, and finding that lost Lego. The ebook was a cute, quick read and I think I took some good ideas away from it. It is hard to tell. It is hard to get away from soft woolen sweaters, scarfs, and jeans.
Linking up with Ginny at Small Things...
