ON THE NEEDLES
Lark in Twig
So, before Mr. Iknead and I took off to Mt. Magazine last weekend, I did a stash dive and came up with ten (!) skeins of this lovely yarn. I’m a little embarrassed to reveal that I’d completely forgotten about this little bit of stash enhancement. Obviously, I’d bought it with a particular project in mind, what with ten skeins and all, but as for the planned project, no clue. Anyway, I started cruising Ravelry for patterns and settled on a sweet and simple vest from Redheart.
Vested and Stylish
Sorry sbout the crazy photos, my phone battery bit the dust and photos taken on my ipad are HUGE. We’re charging, by the way. The pattern and the Lark yarn seem to be a perfect match; I love it when a plan comes together! 😉
I just finished Anthony Rapp’s memoir, Without You. This is another happy discovery, Mr. Rapp was one of the lead characters in my all-time favorite play, Rent. FYI, he played Mark, an aspiring filmmaker. A good read, especially since I love Rent so much, of course, it was loaded with Rent references and bits of insider trivia. Next up is Lucky Us, by Amy Bloom, a book I know next to nothing about, other than the synopsis sounded interesting.

Charlee Faith, who is all of one month as of Monday. Beautiful, right??
She’s #4 in the grandbaby line up and I’m here to tell you, the grandparent thing?, it never gets old. Ever.
The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that it is too low and we reach it. Michelangelo
