Knitting: Ottobre’s wool diaper cover. I will get this finished before she’s out of diapers … but if for some reason I don’t, at least I know plenty of other new babes coming along who could use it.
Reading: The Red Garden by Alice Hoffman. I haven’t read anything by Hoffman since I picked up Practical Magic on a whim. Now I’m kicking myself. This book is wonderful! It is the fictional history of a small Massachusetts town, told in short stories starting with the founding of the town and ending in the present day. It has interesting characters and just a touch of magic. It’s fascinating to watch as events in the town’s past transform into legend and folklore. Great fun!
Yarning along with Ginny today.
