Emma's sweater - done!


Oh it has taken quite a while to get to this point!  I am so happy to be done *almost* with Emma's sweater dress.  It is definitely a little big, but that is what I wanted since I want it to fit her for a while.  This will be perfect for the spring and fall.  I still need to weave in the ends, but you now have an idea of what it looks like.


Now I need to figure out something easy and quick to knit.  I think I might have to go back to baby socks!  Or maybe a dishrag, I can always use more of those!


As far as reading goes, yesterday I finished reading The Compelled.  Loved it, of course I love all things Vampire Diaries, so it works out well.  Now if I could just find out if they are going to write anymore books!  I think there are so many stories that can be told.  I have several books I am waiting on from the library, well they are waiting on me to pick them up I guess. Learning All The Time, Your Money or Your Life, and Elizabeth Zimmermann's Knitter's Almanac.  All of which seem very interesting, and completely unrelated!


I also got a Barnes and Noble gift card for my birthday, so I have a few new books coming in the mail. A Charlotte Mason Companion, Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health, and Putting Food By: Fifth Edition.  Clearly I have a lot of reading in my future!  As I like it!


Looking forward to seeing what everyone else is knitting and reading at this week's yarn along!  And just a note, I cannot get that child to stand still for a picture for anything!

  8. Great top. I love the knots at the top. They look fun. Your daughter looks very sweet wearing it. I can almost hear her singing when I look at the photos.

    I have such a pile of books too. Thank goodness for the library. I'd soon run out of room storing them all otherwise.
