knitting : two more little 'in threes: a baby cardigan', they are fun and quick to make and oh so simple cute. and they are helping to pare down odds and ends of my stash (making room for more!) since they can be made with only one skein of wool (newborn size). the solid heathery grey cardigan is awaiting buttons, still can't decide on which, and the one on the needles is getting an alternate stripe treatment with noro silk garden around the yoke. i made a few small modifications to this pattern, found on ravelry here. sadly, no scrumptious baby to model this week. :)
reading : the knitter's book of wool by clara parkes. a favorite book in my knitting library. clara calls it a 'love letter to wool'. it's a wealth of information and it has some of the most lovely patterns i've seen.
watching : this wee hummingbird groom it's beak while resting on a graceful twig. he carried on for several minutes and didn't seem to notice or mind me or my camera (i do use a 400mm lens to keep a good distance and try not to disturb the wildlife).
linking up with the lovely ginny at the weekly yarnalong. be sure to stop by if you'd like inspiration in knitting and reading.
