This week I started Gulliver's Travels. I have read bits and pieces of it but not the entire book. Its on Maddie's reading list this year so both of us are reading it.
I am working on the Pioneer Girl Shawl. I have finished all the garter stitch rows and have the stitch markers in (almost every one I own!) for the lace rows. Since this is my first time with lace and a chart I thought going with the optional stitch markers was probably a good idea! Now I need some quiet time while I am not tired to give the lace rows a try. I love the little Conestoga wagon stitch marker that came with the kit.
I also thought I would share our stowawayasaurus. He came in something my mom ordered for Maddie for Christmas and she sent him on with the package. He made several appearances in my yarn so I knit him a tiny scarf out of sock yarn and my smallest sock needles. We all keep hiding him on each other. This morning he was waiting for me on top of the jam jar in the fridge! He has been in coffee cups, mittens and pockets. In other words we are having quite a lot of fun with this guy!
Joining Ginny for the yarn along.
