Yarn Along- Kitty Sweater DONE

 In Threes Baby Cardigan

I wonder what the record is for weeks months spent on one baby sweater.  I might be approaching it!  The good news is that the sweater turned out bigger than expected, which means it will fit my 20 month old...rather than a newborn as I had anticipated.  So that's kind of fun.  Finally finished it up.  I added kitty cat buttons that I had.  I can't decide if they are cute or creepy, but my Little Bee LOVES them and meows whenever she sees them, so they stay.

I am about a third of the way into a new book that I randomly grabbed off the "new fiction" shelf at the library.  It is called What You Wish For by Kerry Reichs.  It has the feel of a silly, fun, somewhat shallow thirty-something slice of life book...but the topic is intriguing.  It follows the story of five different characters, each of whom is going about building their family in a different way- none of them have a traditional nuclear family.  So far I am finding it very interesting...a good reminder that families come in all shapes and sizes and that there is no one way to build one.

I need some suggestions for some good fiction reads.  I will be perusing other Yarn Along posts in search of my next book!

Happy Knitting!

Linking up with the Yarn Along once again.
