So I finally finished The Red Thread. I wasn't able to obtain the "finishing kit" that Bent Creek put together, so I went through my supplies and found snaps and heart-shaped buttons. I think it came out pretty cute! I think that if you click the photo, you'll get a larger version of it.
I've started reading Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen. Okay, it's part of a larger scheme. I joined the Jane Austen Yarn Club. It goes for a year and every two months a new reading suggestion, hand-dyed yarn, and original knitting pattern arrives. I know, it's a total indulgence, so I paid for it out of my own money, not the household expenses... Besides, anything that encourages me to get reading these days is a good thing. I used to read a great deal. In fact, my parents used to claim that I was born six days early because I didn't have anything to read in there!
