Hello Everyone. Been a little poorly lately, so mostly staying close to home and doing a lot of easy knitting. My favorite go to knitting when I'm feeling a little weary is garter stitch (anything that doesn't require much from my foggy brain) -- dishcloths, dish towels (a new favorite knit), etc.
Oh, and I also finished my Tess a few weeks ago (Rav link). I do love it. I'd had it in my Rav faves since 2009, but hadn't cast on because I was afraid it would fall off and be cumbersome like my sad Affric. But, after reading the lovely Alicia's positive comments about it, I jumped in. I'm so glad I did, as I'm happy to say, Tess stays on and is cosy, comfy, & soft.
Horrid blurry photo, but I'm too lame to drag out the tripod today -- sorry. But you get an idea of what it looks like, right ^v^?
I've been doing a lot of reading lately too -- still loving "Under the Apple Tree", and started "The Violets of March" a few days ago.

Nice cover, lovely title, don't you think? I did. But, I'm sorry to say it's kind of 'meh'. I don't know, I'm pretty sure it's just me, but a protagonist (Emily) whose mother finds out about her recently pending divorce on her Facebook page is hard for me to relate to. There's more, but I'll leave it at that. Guess I better start reading more books about boring middle aged ladies if I want to really relate ^v^.

Oh, I almost forgot, I finished "The Scarlet Pimpernel" (wonderful Librivox version here). I wanted to read it b/c our sweet Leah had recently read it in school (thank you Charlotte Mason!), and I try to be up (a little bit) on the things she's doing/learning in school (well, not Math).

I also downloaded "The Story of Mankind" from Librivox (don't you love Librivox?!) -- which is another book from Leah's Ambleside reading list. I haven't gotten too far with that one yet.
Anyhoo, I had lots to report on our Spring Break Camp Gigi but will try to get back with that another day -- soon.
Happy weekend Everyone!

Oh, and even though I'm really late to the party, I'm linking with this week's Yarn Along (thanks Ginny!).
