Another Wednesday, another Yarn Along. I'd hoped to present some bright and cheery photos of a cute child in the Playful Stripes Cardigan, gambolling in the grass, soaking up the glorious summer sunshine. Alas, we haven't seen the sun for days, and the model I'd booked for the shoot has a severe case of the green snots. To top it off, when she awoke from her nap today, she was far too grumpy to put on a damp cardigan held together with pins and smile sweetly for the camera.
Yes, it may look finished, but it's not. Can you tell from the photos that it isn't dry yet? And all this rain and snot has left me far from equipped to make important decisions about buttons. Plain silvery shell? Or alternating pink and blue plastic flowers? Classic or cheeky? I can't decide.
One thing I do know is this new book, All That I Am, is a winner. I'm only a chapter in, but I'm willing to put that out there right now. I loved Anna Funder's first book, a non-fiction account of the Stasi in East Germany. And this novel is going to be fantastic. Yes, it is.
Joining in with Small Things. And promising some photos of my girl in her new cardigan when the sun makes its return. And slinking off quietly to read some more of the new book.
Ravelry notes here.
