Yarn along- my first sweater

                              I am working on my first sweater. It's for Unity and I love the yarn and how soft it is. It won't be finished by her birthday ( which is Tuesday!) so I'm not stressed about it, I'm just enjoying the process.

I'm reading A Plain Life by Scott Savage which is a facinating memoir about a man who is walking to Columbus Ohio to give up his driver's license. Savage is a Quaker but a more conservative kind. His family lives and dresses very similarly to the Amish. It's interesting to read about the things they gave up and why, and it makes a lot of sense to me even if I'm not there.

The other is Everything by Kevin Canty, for my book club. It's very realistic, set in Montana, and focused on the simple struggles and joys of a few people. I'm just starting it but so far the bare simple style is a nice change from the other things I've been reading.

Linking with Ginny for lots more yarn and books.

Great job on your sweater....I hope to some day make one...for some reason I am always drawn to smaller projects.

I'm working on my first person sweater (albeit a baby sweater) as well. Can't wait to see how yours turns out.
