Yarn Along

Linking up with Genny again for the Yarn Along over at small things.

No WIP pictures this time, but an "action shot!"  I got 3 mittens done this week - 3 because the first one was way too big, so I had to go down a size.  I'll finish a fourth in the larger size, and then she'll have some to grow into!


Now I need to figure out which knitting project to start next.  I'm thinking it needs to be something for me, but it will probably end up being something for E again.

What have I been reading?  Ummmm . . . aside from numerous children's picture books?  Not much.  I will have a post up on Friday about our books for this week, as part of the reading challenge.  Maybe by next week I will have gotten my act together and actually start a new book!  I even have a couple on my bookshelf calling my name, I just haven't had time to pull them out and say "hello!"

The little mittens looks so cute :) I'm still reading the same book from last week to and from the looks of the pace I'm reading at it may be next weeks book to *grin*. Enjoy the rest of your week!

The mittens are really cute! Maybe I should start knitting some, my girls could definitely use some with all the snow we had.

The mittens look fabulous, but the wings and the expression on your daughter's face is even better.

Blessings, Elizabeth
