Joining in with Ginny today on the yarn along http://www.gsheller.com/ .
Today I'm test knitting a pattern for Liz of The Sitting Tree ,http://thesittingtree.blogspot.com/2013/04/clyde-bonnet.html . I'm really excited about this pattern, it looks like it will be the perfect Spring/Summer hat for little Magnus. It took me a little while to figure out the provisional cast on, I kept doubting myself and thinking it looked wrong when I really was doing it correctly the entire time.

My wonderful husband ordered me a new book to read this week! http://www.amazon.com/Backyard-Homestead-Produce-food-quarter/dp/1603421386 .We feel that we are about 1.5-2 years away from being in a position to purchase our first home, which no matter how much space it ends up having it will promptly be turned into our homestead. I figured while I'm dreaming of our future homestead I might as well educate myself on the actual creation and running of it. So far I am incredibly impressed with this book. It is full of charts, sketches, and tons of information.
