I feel like I'm cheating a little here with the yarn along this week. This is a project I finished a few weeks ago for a friend. It is my second In Threes pattern. I promised you two weeks ago that I would make three of these and this was my second. A friend of mine gave me some dark purple yarn to make the third but that will have to be after Christmas.

I quick took a picture at the end of the baby shower when I realized I hadn't taken a snapshot of the completed project. I also made her a bib and some pretty burp clothes. I almost want a sweater like that for myself!
I might have to make this one.
The book that I will be reading is Louisa May Alcott's Christmas Treasury. It is waiting for me right now at the library. I read it to the girls last year and I think that I will have to actually buy the book and make it a tradition. It is full of virtue and sacrifice. Maybe a little will rub off on us!
