The next morning Bilbo woke up with the early sun in his eyes. He jumped up to look at the time and to go and put his kettle on - and found he was not home at all. So he sat down and wished in vain for a wash and brush. He did not get either, nor tea nor toast nor bacon for his breakfast, only cold mutton and rabbit. And after that he had to get ready for a fresh start."
Today was the bridal shower for my brother-in-law and his bride-to-be! My mother-in-law and I hosted and I was in charge of the desserts and children's fare. Have you tried the Summer Fruit Galette that Alicia posted awhile ago? I lost count of all of the compliments that this recipe received! Delicious! I put four out and by the end of the shower there were only a few slices left. You should make it!

I am still kind of in shock that I had a nearly complete sweater on last week's Yarn Along and then decided to rip it all out and start again. It was the right choice though. I would not have worn a sweater that was too big and that would have been such a waste for all of this pretty yarn. I have finished the decorative part of the yoke and now have about five inches of stockinette to knit before I can divide for the sleeves.
I am reading through New England Knits. My mother and father gave it to me for my namesday, and it was a huge surprise! I also picked up a copy of Country Living UK at the bookshop last week and have not yet opened it... I save it for as long as I can because I enjoy reading it so much!
What are you reading and knitting? Come join us for this week's Yarn Along!

I'm sure that everyone has seen this but me, but I thought that it was such a great how-to video for scarf wearing! I love the look of scarves and oblong ones are my favorite! I have a bunch for head covering in church and it would be nice to incorporate some of these techniques to use my scarves to their full potential outside of services!
