This past week I was able to start and finish Miss Maggie Rabbit's little knitted dress and last night I cast off of my Seashore Cowl. I know that I messed up the stretchy cast off for the cowl and I may try again once I see how it blocks. I plan to wear it only as a cowl though, so how well it stretches may not really be an issue. I cast on for a Shale Baby Blanket (though I am aiming for a lap blanket for long winter evenings by the fire) and it is a very easy pattern once you get into it. I'm only a little in and I am still really having to concentrate, but I am hopeful that as I go along it will be a good knit to work on while I sit with my husband after the little ones go to bed.
I have only read the very first few chapters of The Shell Seekers. It has drawn me right in again like I had hoped it would, but there was just been too much going on this past week to get much reading done. This week I will bury myself in Pilcher's story!
