WIP Wednesday is here, and I’m not forgetting Yarn Along this week either, like I did last time. I have to admit I’m kind of forcing myself to blog. I actually have things to blog about, but I have apparently been bitten by the anti-blogging bug this week. After this post, I’ll still owe everyone a post about the Wollmeise sale, that was pretty awesome by the way.
Mifflin posed nicely. I’m sure the words running through her head weren’t so nice.
I’m going to start with the book I’m reading. And it’s all A Tangled Yarn‘s fault. Or I guess I should say I should thank her. Being here in Germany we aren’t always up-to-date on the newest media. Including books…..and movies. I started reading The Help by Kathryn Stockett. I had seen the book cover a few times (mainly when I was in airports traveling home) but didn’t know anything about the book. I definitely had no idea it was being turned into a movie, let alone just released now. I’m half-way through and I absolutley love it. In fact all I want to do is read now, so I can go see the movie. Then again, I’m afraid to see the movie. Every book I read that’s a movie too, I always have to see. But it is never as good. I’m sure I am not the only one who shares this sentiment? So tell me why we are always drawn to them? Although I do love the actress Emma Stone. How much of a difference can a good actor or actress make?
I also have a baby sweater I’ve been working non-stop on. I think I pretty much have most of my knitting mojo back! Hurrah! Knowing we were going to Wollmeise got me in the Wollmeise mood. I just had to find something to make with my Wollmeise BOB colorway. It’s just the perfect color for a neutral baby knit! Finally I decided on the pattern Offset Wrapland. Since I’m using fingering weight, I found that my gauge was just a bit small, so I decided to just knit the next size up. Right now I only have 1 sleeve, the button-band and collar left. It’s named Take Home Sweater in my projects on Ravelry, but I’m rethinking the idea of the baby wearing it home. We’ll see about that. I think I have alot of time to think about it!
All my WIPs concern baby at the moment. The one that has grown the most? The baby itself! Which means Momma is growing too! Look at the size of that belly! And I’m almost half way through! Does that mean I’m going to be twice the size by the end?!
