Knitting: I have been wanting to knit Eirin a cardigan for a while now, but she is in that age where everything I suggest is stupid... But when I showed her Saga Eskimo from Kofteboken (a norwegian knitbook with new designs on old jackets or kofter as we call them) she nodded and agreed that it would be a nice jacket for her. But not with yellow and it had to be in a yarn that didn't itch... So when I found out that Sandnes Garn was about to discontinue the yarn Duo, which is a cotton and merino blend, I searched the net for a sale and found a shop that had it for half price :) She picked out a purple instead of yellow and now I am just crossing my fingers and hoping she will like it when it's done.
Drinking: Today I am having a cup of one of my go to teas - Blackcurrant tea from Twinings.
Reading: I picked up a stack of books at the library last week, and one of them was Looking for Me by Beth Hoffman. It was one of those books where the cover drew me in, but as I started reading, the story had me after a couple of pages too!! So I will have to check out her first book too - Saving CeeCee Honeycutt.
Teddi Overman found her life’s passion for furniture in a broken-down chair left on the side of the road in rural Kentucky. She learns to turn other people’s castoffs into beautifully restored antiques, and eventually finds a way to open her own shop in Charleston. There, Teddi builds a life for herself as unexpected and quirky as the customers who visit her shop. Though Teddi is surrounded by remarkable friends and finds love in the most surprising way, nothing can alleviate the haunting uncertainty she’s felt in the years since her brother Josh’s mysterious disappearance. When signs emerge that Josh might still be alive, Teddi is drawn home to Kentucky. It’s a journey that could help her come to terms with her shattered family—and to find herself at last. But first she must decide what to let go of and what to keep. - From Goodreads -
