A Bracelet and a VERY Good Book

 I knit a little i-cord with some roving yarn and sewed the fancy buttons our Kelli gave me onto my new accessory!  I know it's kind of an old lady thing to do, but I tried my very best to sew neatly with the needle and thread and I like looking at my bracelet instead of my FitBit!  
 As soon as Susan Branch's new book arrived I began reading and I couldn't put it down.  I love her smooth and articulate writing style and her disclosure is touching.  Her artwork and her photographs make the book even more enchanting.  

It's going to be hard to wait until May to read the second half of this story.  
I continue on with my alpaca vest.  It's a pure and lovely pleasure to work on it.  The Napa knitting store wound the extra skein before sending it, saving me some growly frustration.
I'm joining good Ginny for Yarn Along today!

Cute button bracelet! I like your FitBit too. My DD just got a FitBit and she likes the encouragement it gives her.

The Susan Branch book looks like a fun one too. I should get it. She's a special lady. And YOU are too! Have a Happy Day!

Very nice bracelet and something I may have to do so I don't have to look at my Garmin.
I Love Susan Branch, all of her books are amazing.

What a sweet little bracelet! I love hearts as you know, but I think those little square buttons are actually my favorites in this group. Another Susan Branch book! Thanks for the alert. Her artwork is wonderful, and of course, her stories too. Have a lovely day!

Alpaca wool sounds so rich and wonderful. I sometimes think I should learn to knit; just what I need: one more thing. The books sounds intriguing and I just read the first page! enjoy. Making sals today from all of those tomatoes.

I so loved her book about her travels in England that I related to on so many pages. I was wondering if I should try this new book, too. Maybe I'll hold off till May and get both...

The Susan Branch book looks very interesting. Glad to see you indulging in so many fun and crafty projects! Cute buttons! You are an accomplished knitter. I'm proud of your skills! :)

Alpaca is gently encouraging me to refind my tank top. It needs a new name. Tank top sounds too hard and threatening. mmm. Something to ponder as I tidy the school library until lunch!

Your bracelet is very pretty! xx

I MUST ask Adam to by that Susan Branch for me for Christmas. I waited much too long to get the last one about her British voyage. This one sounds fun -- I like her description of her mother! Happy knitting.
