My project to read all of the Newbery Medalists in chronological order continues and I’m still reading Invincible Louisa: The Story of the Author of Little Women by Cornelia Meigs, the 1934 winner. I’m about halfway through the book, but haven’t had a lot of evening reading time since I’ve been spending my evenings knitting. My daughter has a birthday coming up in early September and I am working on a surprise for her in the evenings after she goes to bed (I’ll try to get a picture sometime when doing so won’t spoil the surprise!), which is cutting into my Newbery reading time! But I hope to finish up the book this week and move on to the 1935 winner, Dobry by Monica Shannon.
I’m also knitting on my second Baby Surprise Jacket. For those who have knit it before, I have just reached the part where you put some stitches on extra needles to hold them while you knit a flap of stitches for 10 ridges in garter stitch. Those of you who have knit this jacket before also know that it is an “almost done” point in the project. Yay! Maybe next week I’ll be showing pictures of a new book and a new project. What will it be?!? Decisions, decisions….
