Well here I am with Ginny http://www.gsheller.com/2011/10/yarn-along_12.html for my second week in a row. I have completed the leg warmers that I started last week, I am pleased with them and my confidence is growing.
This week I have started a little sleeveless top for Arthur (who is 2). I feel this is a good move as it is another creation with only squares. I am using Sidar Escape wool that is really yummy with gentle changing colours.
I am really hoping that I will get over my knitting pattern fear, I have been looking for very very simple patterns that I might give a go. I am up for any advice just remember my only skill until now is a square. I have come across drops and I like this although it is still a little scary! http://www.garnstudio.com/lang/en/visoppskrift.php?d_nr=117&d_id=42&lang=en
The books I'm reading this week are The genius of play, I am on chapter 1, ans supposed to have read it for my Steiner course on Sat. I don't think I will get it all read in time as I do like to take my time. Also having a good fiction on the go means there is never enough time for it all. The second book is distant hours by Kate Morton. I have read here other two books which I loved ! Lucky me got this for my birthday last week.
