On my needles now is the cashmere vest ... I've got the pattern all charted out, casted-on and now the knitting begins. This is similar to the Snow on the Mountains designs but since I can NEVER repeat, I've changed it slightly just for this design.
On the reading front: the kids and I are finishing up The Book of Story Beginnings ... a wonderful read-aloud and exciting story that proves the value of writing good beginnings for a great ending! Waiting underneath is the classic The Pushcart War ... I remember really enjoying this when I was younger and someone's mention of it the other day reminded me that I hadn't yet read it to my kids. We will remedy that as soon as The Book of Story Beginnings is done.
For my personal reading I've got two books just starting up: The Mountains Bow Down is one I'm reading to review for Thomas Nelson Books and Sweater Quest: my year of knitting dangerously is just for me as I've heard great things about it (and it's about knitting so why not give it a shot!)
