I am making some mittens that I love. I broke the yarn fast today, buying some bulky Madeline Tosh in a colorway called "Molly Ringwald." The shade is pale pink. I don't know why I resisted this pattern for so long. I guess the strange gauge (2 1/4 stitches per inch) and the woven cuff scared me off. I shouldn't have been afraid. The pattern is in Speed Knitting by Kris Percival. She has never led me wrong yet.
I finished The Blue Bistro and am a little bit in mourning for it. I added a bunch of Elin Hilderbrand books to my library hold list. Now I'm reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, which doesn't grip me as much as a novel would, but is quite interesting. Bear in mind I almost never read nonfiction.
