My baby surprise jacket is finally back in the works, and looking at my pattern, I realized today that it's nearly finished. While I have been gathering up the courage to pick up the necessary stitches on the baby sweater, I have been working on a many-years-old UFO (unfinished object, since I know one or two of my readers won't understand that abbreviation). It's a blanket in Tunisian crochet. I've been working it in strips, which I will sew together when they are all done, before working a border. There are four strips there (they're wrapped like that because they want to curl up the other direction when first finished; storing them like this seems to help them relax) and I have several more to go.
Finally, this is a book that caught my eye sitting on a shelf. The title intrigued me, so I'm reading it. It's pretty slow going, as it is very dense reading. I can't tell you much else just yet because I've only just started.
Go read about some more knitting and reading over at small things.
