Drum roll please.........I am on the collar of my featherweight cardigan! I know most people do not like to knit sleeves but for some reason I fly through them. I think it is because I know the end is near. You know, the project is near completion. I made the sleeves three quarter length and now that itty bitty bit of yarn left over is for the collar. I do have another skein of Madelinetosh lace in the same color but I really do not want to wind up 1000 yards. So I might fudge the collar with another green from this project. If I do not like the way it looks together then I guess I will be winding lots of lace yarn this week.
This week I am reading How to Knit a Love Song by Rachael Herron. It is very lighthearted and entertaining so far. I have to admit I do love all the knitting that is being sprinkled in the story line. Love and yarn paired together? Sure, why not!
I finished The Distant Hours and I have to say the ending was spectacular!! If you have not read the book, it is a must read. So keep an eye out for it when you are at the library or the bookstore. You will love it.
I still have not found my lost mitts. I guess they are lost. I tore apart the hall closet once, doing it again will probably not make them appear. I have made a resolution of sorts. I will not sit in the car and take off my mitts and keep them on my lap! That is the only way I lost them.
