{Yarn Along}

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.

  1. I love the blue of your legwarmers! Isn't Knit Picks great?
    I have never read Mary Poppins but I imagine it is different from the movie. I really wanted to see Saving Mister Banks, but didn't get a chance and will probably have to wait until it comes out on DVD, which is okay... but I'm so behind the times!
