have been really enjoying my knitting project!
a sweater: harvest moon
a top down knit that has kept my interest,
even after having to frog it because i miss understood the pattern.
got it now though !

loved, loved the "children's blizzard"!
a true story of the blizzard of 1882 that swept through the entire heart land of the country.
man those settlers were something else, what they endured to settle the open plains...

another book i just finished was "nothing to tell".
stories of women homesteaders in montana.

my favorite reads are stories about real people in real life.
and i especially enjoy reading about women and their daily life's.

so if you need a good knit and or books, i highly recommend 
" harvest moon" sweater
and both of these books.
linking with ginny
in yarn along.

Hi Eileen,
