Yes, even on vacation I will post about books and yarn. :) How could I not, I love knitting and reading. Check over with Ginny at small things to share yours and get some inspiration.
Because I do have lots of knitting going. I cast on a new Baby Surprise Jacket before we left to work on in the car. It's going to be so teeny - I've never worked with such tiny needles before! But I really like working with girly colors for a change. Then a good friend who I don't get to hang out with close to as much as I'd like to came over to help me knit my first hat. Ok, so that "2- 4 hour project" is going to end up taking me 4 days to complete but that's not my fault! First of all my mom is way too much fun to talk with and we end up standing in the kitchen telling stories. And secondly, the cats are totally taken with anything with wires or strings so knitting requires a team of defenders nearby to keep them from putting their teeth into it. Last night Stella (a fluffy, gray 17lb beast of a kitty) pounced on my lap to swat at the BSJ while I was knitting. Not cool, kitty, not cool. Maybe today it will be warm and dry enough to sit outside and finish it :)
