Doing as I'm told
The library got Kate Jacob's newest book "Knit the Season" in and I scurried to get as I enjoyed reading "The Friday Night Knitting Club". It inspired me so I pulled out some extra bits of yarn and did as the book suggested - I Knit the Season. Here are 5 little sweaters I whipped up while reading the book. The blue one isn't seamed and the red one isn't quite done.
Here they are looking a little bit closer to their true colors. I think this year I'm going to take all my mini-sweaters and put them on the Christmas wreath on the front door. It will be festive, unusual and will certainly tell all visitors that a knitter lives in the house!
As for the book...can't say I loved it. It was predictable and a bit trite. I think she's played the theme out and needs to move on. There are a few patterns and recipes in the back of the book.
