I am very pleased with how the little striped booties are turning out except that they will be totally too big for the intended baby! Oh well. I may try to downsize the pattern. We are just about to finish The Silver Donkey. A wonderful story, I don't know that I would recommend it for young children, but I would for ages over nine as a read aloud, maybe over age twelve for independent reading. But do read it aloud - big ponderings come hand in hand with this one on courage, heroism, loyalty, and faithfulness.
Merry Christmas to Ginny at Small Things and all the participants of the yarn along!
