This week has been productive in terms of knitting. I am 99% finished with the Baby Surprise Jacket. I just need to finish weaving in the ends and to sew on some buttons. Just a word of advice, if you find something you really like on etsy, don't pin it on pinterest; it's almost a guarantee that someone will buy it before you do. This is what happened with the buttons I was hoping to get for this sweater (and on several other occasions); I think I have finally learned my lesson.
This morning I started working on my next project. I am knitting a Lacie Prairie Shawl. I wanted a warm and practical shawl and this pattern definitely fits the bill. Lets hope I finish it before all of the cooler days of early spring have passed. It'd be a shame to have to wait until autumn to try it out.
Reading wise, I am still reading and enjoying The Art of Fermentation. I am getting more and more excited about fermentation. I just need to figure out what I want to ferment; I am drawn to the idea of pickling lemons so perhaps that is where I will start.
