Joining with the Yarn Along at Small Things, Thanks for hosting Ginny!
I am crocheting actually two baby blankets using the same pattern (two day blanket) but two completely different yarns. I ran out of yarn on the other and am waiting for the order to come in. I find the traditional baby yarn one above to take longer and not look quite a nice. Both are very soft and washable.
I am reading Thyme of Death by Susan Wittig Albert. I am most of the way through and thoroughly enjoying it. It is about a lawyer who decided to change her life, slowing down and enjoying it, she now sells herb in a small shop in a small town. It is a murder mystery as well. I just happened to notice the puny tittle while walking past the stacks in the library. So glad I got the second in the series at the same time. I recently read The Urban Homestead, it was a great inspiration all about starting now and not waiting until you have your farm or the 'perfect' plot of land.
