Snap pea. And bird's egg. Currently these are my two favorite colors.
The day this yarn from Quince & co. arrived last week, oh, that day was a good day. A very good day. I've been keeping my hands busy working on the Odette hoodie for my girl. She'll get the green one, and in a few years L can wear it, too. And soon enough he'll have his very own hoodie in blue. So far, this yarn is super-dreamy to work with and the pattern is moving along nicely as well. But to tell the truth, I'm feeling a little trepidation about those sleeves. Just stick to the pattern, and I should be good to go, right?
Fingers crossed. This is my first sweater, and I've got my eyes on the Katrine for myself so there's a lot riding on the success of these hoodies.
My dear friend in Colorado mailed me this copy of Barbara Kingsolver's latest, Flight Behavior. No doubt about it, Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors. I've read everything she's published. This novel is sure to be another imaginative and exquisitely written adventure.
The Flower's favorite library book this week is Are You a Ladybug? by Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries.
It's a misty, rainy start to the day up here on the divide. The girl and I slept until 7:30 a.m. and I'm quietly nursing my second latte. Ssh. Don't tell my kids that the day is starting off close to perfect, or else one of them will surely lose their cool.
Here's to a smooth rest of the week. Happy Wednesday!
