I finished my hat, With Love From Norway, and I love it. It blocked out so nicely and although I was little worried before because it was so stiff, but of course once it blocked it softened up and smoothed out and fits so comfortably. I picked my Hitofude back up and am making steady headway on it! I am so torn between working on it or my cross-stitch project because I love them both but I just alternate and hope neither one of them gets hurt feelings when I choose the other.
I finished books this week! I finished the last of the Wingfeather Saga, The Warden and the Wolf King and I loved it. Loved. It is beautiful. I actually realized a couple days later as I talked about with Jesse how much I loved it and how much I loved my new friends and how I miss them. I also finished Teaching From Rest by Sarah Mackenzie and will definitely reread it several times over the next few years.
Now I am on to reading Swallows and Amazons, a sweet story about four English siblings in the Lake District who sail and camp and more all summer. It is so detailed but not boring so that you really feel like you can probably do what they do in the story if you had the chance. I am also nearly finished with The Molehill, vol. 1, essays and short stories and poems and even a few illustrated recipes. Slowly working my way through The Inspired Room. I am undecided about the last; so far there have been a few helpful exercises and I'm only on the second or third chapter, but it's pretty focused specifically on the author's own home so I can't always apply everything she's talking through to my old and rickety house. But considering the many changes it's inspired me to keep making and thinking through the past few weeks, I can say I'm enjoying it and being challenged by it and I am excited to keep reading the rest of it.
I am linking up with Ginny for her Yarn Along party as I always do. What are you working on? Leave me a comment so I know you stopped by!
