I have been working on this sock-striped sweater for The Boss for a really, really long time. The needles are so small, the wool so fine, and I need to follow the chart so closely that I start to get cross with it quickly and have to put it away for a few weeks. By the time I go back to it I've forgotten what size I decided to make, and where exactly I left off. I'm hoping my frustration won't be too obvious when it's (eventually) finished. It's called Macy, from a Rowan Kids pattern book.
Though I've actually finished this book recently, I think my book group back in the UK is selecting it this month (with a little pressure from me admittedly). I doubt there'll be many times in my life I get the chance to revel in a friend having had a book published, but this is the first! He's officially an author now, and I'd say a critically-acclaimed author (as in there were great reviews in all the papers) and a celebrated author (as in lots of us went out for drinks after the launch = celebrated, yes?). It's about the loss of his brother in the Indian Ocean tsunami, so though it's very emotional, it's also a true monument to brotherhood. So, if you've got some book tokens lying about, I commend it to you.
