It's not very often I join in with yarnalong. I finally got going on my little scarf, and I am at a point where I've internalized it and don't need to look at the directions anymore.
I bought the pattern through ravelry - it's called Veron. By a woman named Poirot! I wonder if she's related to Hercule? Anyway, it's got a nice wide cabled border, and when your yarn weighs twenty percent of what it weighed when you started, you start the border on the other side. I hope. I like this light blue yarn with the primary red, blue and yellow specks, plus some olive ones. The knitting bag was a gift from Cheryl - it has a drawstring and is a good size for smaller projects.
I'm reading too many books, but sometimes that just happens. Because of my recent interest in Fruitlands and the "American Bloomsbury" group from Concord, MA , I've been reading "Little Women" again after so many years. I'm so surprised at how I'm enjoying it! I also found a used copy of one of Tif Fussell's books - she's the lady behind Dottie Angel - because I was curious about her. Those two books are the light reading, and when my brain is working properly I am trying to learn more about our electoral system. This book by Tara Ross is very thorough - Very Thorough - and she's in favor of it. Which I am too, by the way, even though I find it hard to understand. So, that's why I bought this. Finally, I've been following along with Leila's book club with Josef Ratzinger's "The Spirit of the Liturgy" on Fridays.
I also want to congratulate Ginny and her family on the birth of little Mae. Many blessings to them all!
