Joining in with Ginny of Small Things for this week's yarn along.
I have been working on this poncho for Phoebe using leftover yarn from my stash. I have finished the hood, which was in seed stitch, and am excited to now be into the body since it is in stockinette. (Much more mindless that way!). I really like how it is turning out.... and then I look at all those loose ends I will need to weave in at the end! Gulp!
I am currently reading Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal, which is a book by a small farmer who talks about how bureaucracy makes it so difficult for him to sell the food that he grows. The regulations are all set up for huge corporations, making t tricky and sometimes impossible for a small farmer to turn a profit. So far it has been really interesting. I also just started The Condition by Jennifer Haigh, which is a fictional story about a girl with Turner' Syndrome.
