Yarn Along

::  I finished the blanket, and it's sitting on a shelf, wrapped in brown paper, and awaiting the birth of its recipient.  I wish I could deliver it in person!

:: the sweater ::

I played yarn chicken with this one, and I won! My sister passed down 140 g of mystery worsted weight yarn a while back; I had no idea of the actual yardage.  It feels like wool?  I cast on for the sweater in the 18 month size, and had just enough to make 3/4 length sleeves.  The thermometer dips a bit lower every day, and leaves have begun to fall from our apple trees, so Little M will be wearing it soon.

:: the book ::

Still chugging away at this book, although I haven't taken as much time to read this week.  What I've read so far, though, has been excellent.
