Joining with Ginny at Small Thing's for this week's Yarn Along .
Phoebe's Phoebe's sweater and the mouse and all of her clothes got done in (plenty of) time for Phoebe's birthday. I actually loved knitting the mouse clothes. They were finished so quickly and are so sweet and tiny. Phoebe hasn't worn the sweater yet, or really played with the mouse either, but she has been wrapped up in birthday goodness. I am sure the mouse will have a turn soon.
I am currently knitting up a quick baby sophisticate sweater for my husband's assistant at work. She is due with a baby boy on the 17th. Baby sweaters are so tiny and quick, and this yarn is amazingly soft. Love.
We are planning a few day long road trip for spring break near the end of March and I am looking forward to browsing ravelry for a project or two to knit while we are on the road. It feels so luxurious to be able to 'browse' knitting projects, and not be frantically trying to finish a project by a certain time. My husband always makes fun of me because I stress myself out by self-imposed deadlines on knitting and sewing projects. It is sort of ridiculous when I really stop and think about it. Oh well. That's how I function I guess.... ;)
In the reading world, I temporarily set aside A Tree Grows in Brooklyn so I can focus on California by Edan Lupecki. It's due back on the library soon, and I want to have a chance to finish it. Honestly, I have only had a few moments to read in the last week, as we have been busy with a very special fourth birthday, but I expect to have more quiet nights in my future.
