Yarn Along

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time to Yarn Along with Ginny!
The Younger requested a hat that looks like a cat. We went to the Yarnery and he chose his own yarn, and now I am about 2/3 of the way through. It came out just a bit short, so I'll add some ear flaps after I get the cat ears done on the top.
Also, this week, I did a little revision on the hair of this dolly. To make her hair I crocheted a circle of mohair and attached it to her head. It came out a little renaissance looking -


so I gave her some buns and softened the lines around her face.

In reading news, I finished up Bossypants, it was (unsurprisingly) hilarious.
I was laughing so hard at one point I had to put down the book and take a break.
Now I'm back into A Dance with Dragons.
It's the last book in the series for now, and I don't want to finish it too quickly, but I really want to know what's going to happen to all of my favorite characters!
Joining Ginny this morning, head over there to see more knitting fun and great book suggestions.

That doll is adorable! I have heard that Bossypants is pretty funny, but haven't sat down to read it. It will probably go on my always growing list for the library :-)
