I also finished Jack's winter hat. I really like how it turned out. I started one for Emma, but it wasn't turning out the way I wanted, so I frogged it and decided on the scarf to occupy my time instead. It is a pretty pattern of garter stitch and lace insert. I am really enjoying the ease of this pattern too, it is just a multiple of 2 stitches, very cool :-)
As for reading this week, I'm not really reading anything different. We are still reading Persuasion, one chapter at a time. I'm really enjoying it, and the kids still seem to be as well, so we keep pushing on. Matt is reading 11/22/63: A Novel, which he says is the best book he has read in a long time. I think it is suspense, I don't think it is the typical scare the crap out of you book that he writes. I love that Stephen King lives in Maine, but honestly I have never been able to read any of his books. I might give this one a try though, since Matt says it is so good.
Joining in with Ginny for her yarn along this week.
