I have been working on Faith's Tiny Tea Leaves cardigan quite a bit since the recitals (I picked it up when I was sitting with the girls backstage). I am almost finished with the body. I hope I have enough yarn left for two sleeves, as this girl just keeps getting longer every day. I like the color and the yarn except when I am knitting, the pea pod green fuzz ends up all over the front of me. I hope that stops when I block it.
I am reading Second Nature by Jacquelyn Mitchard. I just started it, so I don't have much of an opinion, but I have loved everything else by Mitchard so I imagine I will like this one, too. I finally finished Something Other than God by Jennifer Fulwiler, and enjoyed it. I can't say it was over-the-top like I expected it to be (because of everything I read about other people reading it, not because it wasn't a good book), but it was a great conversion story.
Speaking of great conversion stories, I remembered what else I was going to say yesterday. Doug and I attended the Greater Columbus Right to Life dinner on Monday night and heard Abby Johnson speak. You might remember Abby from her book Unplanned, about her conversion from being a director of a PP center to being vehemently pro-life. Abby has also converted to Catholicism since that book was published and is now very pregnant with her fourth child. She was a great speaker, very funny, and I would embrace the opportunity to hear her speak again any day.
My other project, one I have been working on as much as possible, is a baby quilt for a tiny little boy who is probably growing as much as my tall, skinny girl, so I really need to wrap it up. I now have the top finished and will attach the back and quilt it, hopefully by the end of the week. I love the colors. They look so clean with each other. I think when my boys were little guys they probably wore reds, blues, and white with khaki almost all the time. I do so love little boys.
