happy yarn along day! so just as i had planned i cast on 2 vests for my littles, one for each. the plum coloured yarn was for the june bug and i cast on another emma tunic. and the brown vest will be for the little man, i downloaded the tiny trees vest, but i will have to upsize it a little, because the pattern only goes up to size 3 years. i will probably just make it longer than the pattern calls for. i know i am running short on yarn for that project. i might make the top piece of the vest in a colour that appears in the yarn i have right now, something dark and subtle.
i have been reading "happier at home" by gretchen rubin (known best for her book "the happiness project") for a couple of weeks now. i love the concept of this, that the book is not called "happy" at home, but "happier". because i believe we are all happy at home, but how can we make it an even happier place? i liked one of the ideas she had, about having "shrines" throughout your home for areas of your life that are important to you. i noticed i do the same. i got another non-fiction book that i can't wait to start, but i'm making myself finish this one first.
one of my goals for this year is to read more fiction books, so i'm off to browse your yarn along posts to check out what you recommend reading!
joining ginny's yarn along. what are you knitting and reading?
