Can you believe it is Wednesday already? Time is just whizzing by for me. As you can see I am now on the fourth book Anne of Windy Poplars. I finished Anne of the Island and guess what? Anne finally figures out who she loves.....duh! Throughout the whole book everyone knew but her. The best part of the book was when she was contemplating being with a romantic man who says beautiful things, or with a man who has a sense of humor, one she could share a laugh with. I think if you are laughing through life you might just live longer and have fun along the way! Thank goodness for Anne, humor won out. How sad if your partner doesn't get your jokes.
My knitting is a new project. This is a shawl for my mother in law's birthday. Now I really hope I give it to her because I am LOVING it very much for myself. Here is the ravelry page. Sometimes it is hard to be generous.

I try and make things for people in something that is not my colour (but is their's of course!) just so that I can bear to part with it ;) Love the colours you're using for MIL's shawl, so soft and pretty :)ReplyDelete
Duh! You're right ^^ Every time I read the books and Anne finally comes to her senses I think "Man...about time!" =)ReplyDelete
The pattern is lovely and the yarn you picked looks so pretty.
I know I am thankful to have a partner who makes me laugh and appreciates my sense of humor. :)ReplyDelete
Chase and I will be watching Anne (the PBS version) today as we work on our projects.
I love the shade of the yarn you're using!
I hear you on making things for others that you love yourself. I find it hard to hand some things over! I love the colours in the yarn you are knitting the shawl in. I am a fan of Anne books. I hope you enjoy the next book. JacintaReplyDelete
I need to re-read the Anne books now...ReplyDelete
Looking forward to seeing how your shawl goes. I've never had the nerve to do one yet, but I have some yarn on backorder that will eventually become my first. :) I love the yarn you have there - the colors are just gorgeous... xo
Oh, I've never read that particular book yet. I'll have to search it out. Your shawl looks good so far.ReplyDelete
Ooh, lovely shawl... let's see who gets to wear it in the end.. :)ReplyDelete
I hear you about giving away knitting. I have a piece that is going in the mail today for my mom and I really want to keep it! So glad I love my mom so much!HA! ;)ReplyDelete
That pattern is so pretty, I think I found my next project. ;)ReplyDelete
Silly Anne ... who else would take that long to realize they loved GILBERT? ;)ReplyDelete
Aaah, Anne and Gilbert. Makes me smile. What a gorgeous shawl that will be!ReplyDelete
The shawl is so pretty! I love the colorway.ReplyDelete
Sometimes it IS hard to be generous!! I don't blame you... it's looking fabulous.ReplyDelete
Aren't you going to be sad when you finish the Anne series? That's the flip side to reading a series that is so wonderful. There is a feeling of loss when you are finished...
the colors are beautiful! good luck trying to give it away!ReplyDelete
oh yes, anne. i ended up with a man with a wicked sense of humor and he makes me laugh every single day - couldn't ask for more!ReplyDelete
That shawl looks familiar...love it!ReplyDelete
Gosh, this summer has just who-o-o-oshed by! We only have 3 weeks I think before school starts. Aaaah! She'll be a Junior - wow! I loved the Anne books so much, ya'll are inspiring me to maybe read them again. My TBR pile is sky high now!ReplyDelete
You are sure a good DIL!ReplyDelete
I love Gilbert. Love him.
That yarn is delicious! And, Anne with an e. I just adore her.ReplyDelete
The shawl pattern is beautiful. I don't blame you for wanting to keep it!ReplyDelete
Humor in a partner is the best and I might even say necessary to get through life's bumps.ReplyDelete
I love the anne books...they are right up there with little house books...can't wait until my kids are old enough for anne though...I think you need to be a bit older to really like them.ReplyDelete
