Yarning Along with Ginny (as usual)...
That blob of yellow that looks like nothing much? It's the Omelet- just a few tiny rows shy of completing the lace and then the massive bind off. I can honestly say that I'm not looking forward to it, except that it means I can block it and wear it!
I'm aiming to finish in the next few days so that I can block it over the weekend. Then the lace will open and actually look like something instead of a blob of holey knit fabric.
I'm also knitting along on the Back-To School Vest and have just a bit to finish on the back before I work the neck edging and armholes before calling that one complete too. And the gray Poet's Pullover is in need of just one more 1/4 skein to finish that sleeve. I aim to get to the yarn shop tomorrow so that I might finish that sleeve while we spend time waiting at the hospital this week. I did originally buy enough yarn for the pullover before I started it, but I think some of that wool became socks for my husband while I wasn't thinking clearly about it being "assigned to a project" yarn. PLEASE tell me I'm not the only one who does that sort of thing!
For our reads this week I'm on to Throne of Fire and I'm still reading Charlotte's Web with my boys. We are enjoying it very much and Ezra is especially in love with the goose's speeches.
I did a count of my reads for this year and I'm already at 16 novels. My goal is usually 20, so I think I'll be good to reach it this year. I've been heavily reading YA the last few months but I want to get back to some good historical fiction. I am lacking for titles though! Thoughts?
