Joining in with Ginny and everyone else for this week's knit along.
I finished the little simple knit doll for Emmy's birthday. It was a very easy pattern from Living Crafts magazine, the winter 2012 issue.
Also off the needles came the colin vest I was making for a custom order. I had cast on 54 stitches on size 10 needles. I will instead cast on size 8 needles and hope for a better fit. It was supposed to be a size 4 but turned out to be a size 8! However, it has a new owner - Sarah really likes it and it fits her pretty well.
I am reading a book that Renee recommended, If You Lived Here, I'd Know Your Name by Heather Lende. It is so nice to finally have a book to look forward to reading at bed each evening - I think I am probably too picky but if I don't find a book interesting, I stop reading it. I figure there are so many good ones to read, why spend time reading something I am not enjoying.
Another book I am really enjoying is my nightly read aloud to Sarah, King of the Wind by Marguerite Henry. Sarah is our horse lover and this book flows nicely and we have been looking forward to reading a chapter each night.
I am looking forward to reading about your knitting projects and good book finds.
