Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny at Small Thing's for this week's Yarn Along .

I finished up Phoebe's new tiny tea leaves last week on our return car ride home from Bandon. I just need to get my cute little one in it to take a photo so that I can share with you all!

And now I am on to knitting Phoebe one of these. I knit her all of the patterns in Phoebe's Sweater for her birthday present, and I have this urge to knit her all of the patterns from Phoebe's Birthday before she gets too big. Is that a weird obsession? Maybe. But it just sort of seems like it needs to happen.

I am reading two on-a-whim books right now. Tibetan Peach Pie by Tom Robbins and How to Build a Girl by Cailin Moran. I snagged both of them off the library shelf last week, which is something I never do. I almost always plan out my reading, put a hold on what I want at the library, and then go pick it up. But this time I chose spontaneous books, totally on a whim. (I am patting myself on the back right now). And they are both hilarious.

Stay tuned for pictures of Miss P in her new, orange, sweater.  They will come. Soon.

What are you reading? What are you knitting?
