A few weeks ago I saw that someone was reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and I added it to the growing list of books to someday read.
Well, when I saw it at a garage sale for 50 cents I snapped it up and I am so glad I did!
A Tree Grows in Brooklyn is a semi-autobiographical novel by Betty Smith about growing up desperately poor in the early 1900s in Brooklyn.
Her descriptions of the daily lives and social interactions of her childhood home were vivid, raw, often sad, but sometimes beautiful.
The knitting is a pirate sweater for the Younger. He is way, way into pirates right now.
The plan is to put a Jolly Roger pocket on when it's finished, and he asked if I could add an Imperial Navy flag on the opposite side.
He's so funny.
In other news, I have been flipping occasionally through the book that my midwife gave me at my first OB appointment a month ago.
Which means that we are expecting a third baby in the spring!
Thanks to Yarn Along, I won't suffer for great ideas for baby knitting!
Good thing I have a little time :)
What have you all been reading and knitting lately?
