I'm a little late to the party today, but at least I made it before bedtime.
I started working on this little sweater for Faith this week while I was sweating out the flu on the sofa. I don't recommend it (the flu) for any of my friends, but if I had any enemies I knew of I might just cough on them. It's no fun, no fun at all. And I definitely don't recommend casting on one's first sweater with a 101 fever. I started over three times, but, as they say, third time's the charm.
The pattern for this sweater came from here. I went with an inexpensive cotton yarn, because this is my first sweater and I didn't want to spend a bundle in case I botched it. But so far so good and I really like the color of the yarn. It's very cute. The pattern, thusfar, and even with a fever-muddled brain, is very easy and I like how it starts to take shape immediately. Ginny recommend Knitting Pure and Simple to me and I can see why.
My read this week is a Playaway of Atonement by Ian McEwan that I borrowed from the library.
