Small Things today for another yarn along.
I am still working on my Helena sweater
for Phoebe. I have finished the body down until the part that becomes a lace pattern. I am terrible at doing lace patterns because I always lose my train of thought, start daydreaming, and forget where I was. SO,.... I have dedicated the rest of the sweater to be done on nights when I am not watching a movie, talking to my husband, or anything else that will distract me even more than my own brain does! We need a day camping, or a long car ride...... I also decided that I think I want to make this Helena a short sleeved cardigan, and not the full sleeves written into the patter. With warmer weather headed this way, it just feels right.
Since the Helena sweater has gotten to a point where I need to concentrate, I threw a basic hat on some needles for myself. I need something warm and cozy for cool nights camping, or for the fall and winter to come. It is mindless, which is exactly what I need!
What am I reading? Well, sorry to bore you all, but I am still reading all of the same books from last week:, Paul Hawken's Blessed Unrest, The Urban Homestead (which I am almost done with!), Raising Your Spirited Child and The Inventions of Huge Cabret, which Finn and I are reading before bed. Hopefully next week I will have finished at least one of these! My yarn along posts are getting redundant!!
What are you reading? What are you knitting?
