|Please forgive my awesome hair, I was on my way to the Y to work out.|
Ok so I finished my first sweater. It was fun to make, but here's the thing...it doesn't fit her. Not even close. I knew it would be big and was thinking she would grow into it, but the arms are way too long and the neck is too wide. I know there is a magical thing called blocking that is supposed to make everything better, but is it really that magical? I'm sad cause I spent most of a month and more money than I want to admit to working on this and now it looks like she won't even be able to wear it. Sigh.
As for books, I'm reading Growing Into Goodness, essays on Quaker education by my former professor Paul Lacey. I also read The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, since it's finally out in paperback. It's just like all the others, thrilling, disturbing and a quick read.
Linking with Ginny for more yarn and books.
