I finished up the Plain Vest with all of the leftover bits of Peace Fleece wool yarns and am happy with the rustic feel.
I have cast on a Christmas gift for a family member - it is called April Showers Scarf and I am using a dk weight yarn in beautiful green shades with size 8 needles. This pattern does require counting so I anticipate that it will be on the needles for some time as I will probably save it to work on during car rides or quiet nursing times.
So I am having fun looking my through my stash, trying to come up with another simple knit to cast on.
On Monday, I was able to go to a sweet treasure shop and found this book, Out of the Saltbox, The Savour of Old Vermont. The author writes about a house that was home to one of Vermont's first settlers and then remained in the family for five subsequent generations. It is nonfiction, based on research, but reads much like a story of simpler (but often much, much more challenging) times.
Looking forward to sharing with Ginny and many others in today's yarn along.
