Can you believe it???? I am on a new book and a new knitting project! I feel so accomplished right now. But before you completely believe me look at the next picture.....I have some assembling and burying of threads to attend to before I can say it is done. I am hoping tomorrow will be the magical day for posting a completed project. The coffee mug is my absolute favorite and I can't remember who gave it to me :/ I know it is quite old (like over 20 years?)
I finished The Help and I loved it! I thought it was one of the best books that I have read in a long time. The characters were likable and believable and the storyline was interesting until the very end. I also like the ending. Sometimes endings are rushed or sometimes I think there is a better way to end. If you haven't read The Help, I highly suggest giving it a read.
The new project is the Traveling Woman Shawl that I did make once before as blogged about here. I really enjoyed the pattern and wanted to make it again in a solid yarn. If you guessed that this yarn is Madelinetosh in Tosh Merino Light you know your yarn! The colorway is Composition Book Grey (I love that name!).
I know you will think I am crazy but I am thinking of starting another sweater in a small gauge again. I apparently haven't learned my lesson. I am still mulling it about in my brain so I am not completely committed to being a glutton for punishment.
