people following along our yarn along posts for the last weeks may hardly believe this: i finished a project and i finished a book! the milo vest for my junebug is done, she is wearing it already, i took photos of her in it and have a post about it in the works! i also finished the book Where'd You Go Bernadette.
i know Tracey you read it as well and wanted to "talk":) also anybody else who read it, tell me how did you like it? this is my opinion: i thought it was a funny and highly entertaining book, with a different kind of style of narration that i found very refreshing and amusing. i can certainly recommend reading it! there is only one thing that i found slightly strange and that confused me a bit (and that's for insiders): Bernadette's letter to her daughter in the very end of the book sounded a lot different from the letter she wrote to Prof. Jellinek. even though i "get" what she writes to the professor, it seemed like two different persons writing the respective letters. that was the only part of the book that seemed inconsistent to me, and stuck out as weird, especially after having finished the book and reading the last letter. but that's just a minor detail...
i now just started The Hunger Games, i know everybody seems to have read or watched it already. a friend of mine gave me her copy (and she's a huge fan!) so i'm looking forward to reading it. and ready to be cast on is the plain vest, once again a knit for my little girl.
i finished... no, almost finished the white hat i was working on. the crochet flowers and leaves are only attached with needles right now (tucked them away for the photo).
a few days ago i started a new hat just like that, but i made it too big for who it was intended at first. so another girl will get the second white hat, and i'll then have to still make another one a bit smaller. but i doubt it will be the same colors and design because i very quickly get tired of doing the same things all over. i almost regret having started another white hat. perhaps i'll change up the colors of the flowers, that might help make it more interesting again.
joining ginny again this week. what are you knitting/crocheting and reading?
