Okay, so I have been casting on a lot of projects. I just can't resist. I have been really knitting up a storm on the periwinkle frost shawl and I am still on chart A. I am more than half way done with the first chart and I can see my progress-I love this shawl! My Hawthorne Cardigan has only had one or two rows added since last week. My Sprouts Shawl is working up nicely! I cannot stop singing the praises for Malabrigo Sock yarn-it is soft and squishy and has excellent stitch definition. I think it is a treat to knit with for socks or for a shawl. I also have in mind making a sweater one day out of it.
My reading this week is still Rilla of Ingleside. It might be the best book in the series. I am so glad that I am finally reading it. What a pleasure to observe the main character maturing during the events of World War I through her experiences. Amazingly she is taking care of a newborn infant at fifteen years of age. I remember babysitting a three month old when I was sixteen and it was not an easy task (for me). I called my mom every half hour peppering her with questions about how to get the little baby to stop crying. He must have missed his mother.
I thought I would include a photo of the the cowl I finished last week. Before my daughter left for school I remembered to get the camera. They match her legwarmers, so when she is running she will look so "together". Maybe she doesn't wear them together? I'll have to ask.
