I was in Gunnison, Colorado this week and while Eric was at meetings I explored the little town.
I picked up two books at a cute bookstore called the Bookworm. This book store had a little of this and a little of that. I enjoy small town book stores to find local history books, but not this time. I guess I have been in enough small towns that I have read the ones that interest me, so settled for a book on grammar. I can always use help on that subject.

Yesterday, I was knitting on my pi shawl and was overwhelmed with the fact that I have 3
huge knitting projects going and feeling “I will never get done”! I need a finish! So, I casted on for a infant baby sweater using Berroco yarn I had in stash. Hopefully I can buzz through this knit and feel like - "yes, I have a finish”, “I  can get things done”. 

Please join me at YARN ALONG and my blog friend Ginny. If you have never been to Ginny’s blog it is well worth a pop into for a visit.

i read eats, shoots and leaves a few years ago at the suggestion from my writer daughter and i loved it. I also love that you are knitting baby things. I love them too for the quick knit they are. I am currently knitting the Follow my arrow shawl and it's BIG and i am getting a bit bored!!!!

Eats, Shoots, and Leaves is a lot of fun -- though I can't help myself, I have to mention: she's a Brit and we do some things differently over here in the US of A. Not all those rules cross over.

Good choice to finish the baby knit, love the colour.

mm I totally know what you mean, when you have big projects you need something so you can get a quick hit of "finished!" I've just finished a big cardi so I'm whipping up a soaker for my toddler and polishing off some WIPs that just need zips and buttons before I dive into something bigger. Like the two shawls that have been WIPs for yonks!
