Casting on is going much better this week. I was able to complete a small dolls washcloth during naptime today and then try casting on for a human sized one before the baby woke up. This week's problem is the fact that I get a long length of yarn between my needles on the first row I do after the cast on. I plan on googling that problem to see if there is a way to avoid that. I am loving these Yarn Alongs... they are keeping my motivated to continue working on my knitting! I am near the end of the blue yarn and am really looking forward to going to the store to find something new to knit with. Any suggestions?
I am in the midst of reading two books this week: Tom's Midnight Garden and The Gentle Art of Domesticity. It is too early to tell what I think about Tom's (it seems a little sci-fi and that is not my favorite genre), but I LOVE The Gentle Art of Domesticity and am dreading the library due date! It is chock full of gorgeous photographs and encouraging essays on creating a warm and lovely home... definitely worth checking out!
