Spring is almost here according to the Weatherman and the calendar. Spring flowers have broken free a few weeks too early but no one will begrudge their overenthusiastic schedule since they make everything beautiful.
I have little something on the needles today, perfect green knitting for St. Paddy’s Day. I’m knitting the Molly hat again for my dear friend’s daughter who turns 3 next week.
She and her brother had a very unfortunate incident involving a pair of scissors and Dora. No, they didn’t cut Dora-the-doll’s hair. He decided to give his sister a “Dora haircut” and seeing that he’s only 5, he didn’t do a very good job of it. Their frazzled Mama tried to salvage the bad hair-do at the local salon, but you can only do so much to hair that’s been chopped off in clumps. Thankfully, hair is renewable and this one will definitely go down in their memory books!! I’m thinking that this beret will be cute enough to hide a multitude of haircutting disasters:)
My Tea Leaves Cardigan is coming along quite well too. I’ve finished the body while multi-tasking.
Prithvi loves to read and it’s no surprise since I used to be the same way when I was his age. I remember devouring a book every chance I got, even reading under the covers with a flashlight! So, it’s no wonder that we go to the library to check out a pile of books every week. Last week I happened to see a knitting novel called, ‘The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club’, sitting there on the shelf and had to grab it. I didn’t read the back cover to see if it was any good, I just grabbed it. I’m on the last chapter now and I have been reading while I knit. The reason…LARGE print edition!!
Unfortunately, the book is, well….meh, but I realized that I have missed reading so much that I just plowed my way through.
PS: For those of us with little people in our lives, the latest issue of Petite Purls is out with plenty of stashbusting inspiration and cuteness!
