I'm joining Ginny's yarn along today over on Small Things. This week I finished my tweed V-Neck sweater (Ravelry link), which was my first finished object for myself in quite a lot of time... since at least before the holidays. And I haven't taken it off since, because it's so warm and comfortable. Love it. (it's hard to take a picture of yourself wearing a sweater)
Then, I needed to move on right away to an easy, light-and-airy type Spring knit. So now I've wound my lovely Manos Silk into a ball, and I've cast on for a Branching Out lace scarf in this warm orange shade. Not a particularly Spring color - but pretty. I may not finish it until Fall anyway :)
And as for reading, the kids and I have been reading these small poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, A Child's Garden of Verses, and looking at the beautiful illustrations by Gyo Fujikawa. Wish we owned this book, but I'm glad our library does, because it's a favorite! And I haven't been reading anything much myself this week, except for leafing through my More-with-Less cookbook almost everyday. Specifically, this week, I'm especially reading recipes for homemade granola mixes, and for soups that are heavy on vegetable on light on meat. We made another Garden Veggie soup this week that I loved loved loved. It is so easy to make a huge pot of soup, I can't believe I didn't start making my own soup years and years ago. Plus it feeds us for the rest of the week. Awesome.
What are you reading, and/or crafting this week?
