I've been working on leg warmers for Kate. The yarn is from Knit Picks and is the same yarn I used for her sweater. I really love it. It's very soft and warm. Hopefully not too warm for my little tropical girl.
I'm currently reading Mary Poppins. I had never read it before. Callie didn't like it when she read it a while back. I loved the movie, "Saving Mr. Banks", and of course I've always loved the Mary Poppins movie, so I wanted to see for myself what the book was like. I like it. It's cute, but I can see why Callie didn't. Mary Poppins is pretty much a grouch!
The book I really enjoyed recently was Longbourn. It's the story of Pride and Prejudice told from the perspective of the servants of the Bennett family. Unfortunately, because of one or two lines, I wouldn't just hand this to my 14 yo daughter, but otherwise it was great.
