as most of you might know by now, the artsy ants won't be an ocean apart for the next few weeks, as simona and her husband are here in germany with us all. on monday, while the baby was napping and the little man was happily bouncing off his aunty's back (hee hee), i sat in the garden and actually continued knitting. so much that i got motivated to carry on at home in the evening. so as you can see i did end up using blue yarn for the collar of the plain vest, and i like how it contrasts the orange.
i managed to squeeze 3 books into the photo: i finished Me Before Youlast week. it was a lovely read, with wonderful, lovable characters. i had anticipated the ending of the story, but i can still recommend it. the story and the characters stayed with me for a long time and i found myself thinking about them in the days after finishing the book. i even started making research about quadriplegia.
i then started Last Child in the Woods, which is good, but i need a fiction read as well, so i also started Anne of Green Gables. i think i never read Anne as a young girl, at least i don't remember. but i want to read books that i hope my junebug will enjoy one day, and this was one on my list.
joining ginny again this week. what are you knitting and reading??
