I have come to two realizations: I am not wonderful with transitions, and I sometimes just need a bit of mindless entertainment.
First, the transitions. Above: Lily's sweater, still in progress. The reason? I have to switch to 4.5mm needles for the cuff, and such a transition is just so tricky for me to actually accomplish. So there it is, a lovely sweater still on the needles. I promise (to myself, perhaps) that I will have some pictures of my little one frolicking in her sweater next week.
And second, the mindless entertainment. I finished Little Bee, above, and it was beautiful. Beautifully written, compelling, and yet a bit too challenging. I will carry parts of it with me for a long time, and yet I don't think I would read it again. I suppose when you spend your days wrestling with the very primal elements of human nature with two little humans, you don't need to be reminded of it in the evening. We did, however, receive The Story of the Snow Children in the mail today, and it is absolutely perfect. Now I just need to find a similar book that is intended for adults. Any suggestions?
Looking forward to catching glimpses of everyone else's yarn alongs (which can be found on Ginny's page!).
