Happily joining in with Ginny at Small Things for this week's Yarn Along. The pressure of Christmas gifting has set in and I have been getting back into the rhythm of nightly knitting. I am still working on Phoebe's tea leaves sweater and I am almost done with the body. I am loving the way it is turning out so far. I just need to decide if I am going to do the 3/4 length sleeves, as written in the pattern, or if I am going to make them longer for cool winter days. I also started a mystery holiday gift yesterday. My knitting list is long, so I need to stay motivated!
As for reading, I am reading snippets of books here and there. Not having time to read much at once, I seem to read a chapter of one book one day and then a chapter of a different book the next. I actually hate when I do this... start reading way too many books at once and then I am not sure where to focus my energy. I guess for now I will keep chugging along and eventually I will finish something, right? Maybe my new years resolution should be to stay focused!
