Even before my sweet husband bought me these yummy skeins, I was feverishly queuing cardigan and pullover patterns as if they were going out of style. Fortunately, some of my favorite designers have had a sale here and there fully justifying my recent Ravelry pattern splurge. (Yes, I often have to find ways to justify my passion for knitting).
One recent splurge happened over on Amy Christophers' Savory Knitting's pattern page ~ I've been coveting her patterns forever and am so happy to now have a few in my library. I find it hard to believe that I've been a fangirl of hers for so long but have yet to knit one of her patterns. I'm going to remedy that this summer, but I have to decided whether I want to start with her incredibly popular Acer Cardigan or something a little simpler. Stay tuned to find out!
Meanwhile, I'm happy to say that I've got the reading bug again. With the busyness of the last few weeks, my mind hasn't been able to concentrate much on books, but over the long holiday weekend, I started John Green's The Fault in Our Stars, a favorite with my two teens, and a novel that has been praised on both YA and adult Best Of lists. I couldn't agree more.
