Yarn Along


I am working on this Flirty Ruffle Scarf for my big girl. She loves to knit things for others, so I thought I would treat her to some twirly homemade fun. I'm not sure this is it. Do you ever have this problem? I see something cute like this in a picture and think, "That's adorable!" But when I work it up in my own two hands, following the pattern exactly, even down to the kind of yarn used, just a different color, I think, "That looks like something a little old lady wouldn't even wear!" I don't know. Maybe it's just me.
As far as what's being read around here, I decided I needed a little levity, so I picked up a copy of A Little Bit Wicked: Life, Love and Faith in Stages by Kristin Chenoweth and Joni Rodgers. So far, it's doing the trick. I have laughed out loud multiple times because these gals can sure tell a funny story. I have also been impressed by her adoption story (she's adopted, she hasn't adopted a child herself) and her love for her grandparents! But I should warn you that I am a huge Kristin Chenoweth fan and that's probably what inspired most of my interest in her story.

(Again, somehow, I have managed to match my yarn to my reading material.  I really am not that much of a perfectionist!)
