Maggie is 9 weeks old!
I finished my Multnomah last week. I love how the pattern lends itself to the yarn and it looks very oceany to me. I wish the shawl were a bit bigger- although I guess I could have made it bigger if I had more yarn. I did add two extra feather and fan pattern repeats. It very nicely covers my shoulders but not much else. Also somehow it doesn't seem to want to stay wrapped around my neck to use like a scarf. Still it's a lovely little shawl.
I'm reading Burn by Linda Howard for fun. Linda Howard is one of my favorite fun reading authors. Her stories are always interesting, a little unique, and quick reads. We are also getting ready to celebrate the beginning of advent this year. Frank's mother is here visiting for the month so we'd thought we begin the traditon of the Jesse Tree with the boys. They are old enough to begin understanding and they enjoy stories. We'll probably combine reading from this book with The Usborne Little Book of Stories from the Old Testament because that book is more in story form as opposed to direct readings from the Bible.
Happy Advent (starting Sunday) and come yarn along with us over at Ginny's place.
