Linking up with Ginny’s Wednesday Yarn Along link party.

I’m knitting a little, as always, and reading! I read an actual book!

Here’s my latest on the needles:


It’s the Cafe Au Lait Tam, out of the most beautiful blue beaded Tilli Thomas Flurries yarn. I don’t even know if they still make it! It is such a lovely merino, really almost a roving with a string of glass beads alongside. I still think I want this hat even though Paige is convinced that it will be hers!

I just finished this:


Magical, indeed! I cannot wait to write more about this book. Marie has a disarming, charming style and just makes you want to start putting your things in order.

Confession time: my sewing room is a nightmare, and I have a room downstairs that is virtually unusable because of JUNK. I am looking forward to implementing her ideas and reclaiming my space. I can’t recommend the book as a how-to just yet, because I haven’t “tidied up” yet. I can say, though, that it’s a fun book to read.

I think I’ll be working on this in January. I’ll blog more about it when I get down to work!
