Oaklet Shawl, but then Tess climbed on me and several stitches popped off. Despite my best efforts, I wasn't able to get those yarn overs and the lace pattern back on the needles the right way. I forged ahead and when the next row of lace didn't line up with the previous row, I gave up and frogged the whole thing. I decided to use the same yarn to cast on the Saroyan instead. I'm enjoying this pattern much more than the Oaklet Shawl anyway. The tiny leaves on the edges are just so much fun to knit.
As for reading, I'm reading I Think I Love You by Allison Pearson. This is book club reading and it's about some Welsh girls in the 70's who are completely obsessed with David Cassidy. Well, it's more complex than that. It's really about the insecurities of adolescent girl-friendships set during the height of David Cassidy mania.
I just downloaded 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker after seeing that Elizabeth was reading it as well. Her goal is to combat the stresses of the excessive American life. As someone who strives for simplicity, this, I'm sure is right up my alley.
That's it for today. Don't forget to check out more yarn and book adventures at Ginny's!
