on my needles - still that same baby hat


The Nancy Drew kick continues -- I'm reading The Ghost of Blackwood Hall (that's the one with the fake seances), and just finished The Secret in the Old Attic (that's the one with the pointing skeleton and the black widow spider.) I think these are my two favorite books from the series.

Before the trip, I started a NICU hat with some baby yarn that has been sitting in my stash since 2004. That date implies that it was supposed to be a sweater for Quinn, who was two months old on that shopping trip. I'm glad that yarn doesn't come with expiration dates and can always be re purposed for something else.

Today I won't be knitting or reading. I've got a quilt to finish!



And check out On the Needles over at Patchwork Times.

Oh, Nancy Drew. I tried to get our seven year old to read a Drew but she said it was too scary. I LOOOVED those books and hope in a few years she's ready to get lost in the mystery of it all.

You know I have never read any Nancy Drew! Maybe that's something else to add to my list.

Every now and then I pick up a Nancy Drew and re-read it, funny how fast I can read them now, lol! I do enjoy them and wish I still had my entire stash of them. I would love to introduce a future granddaughter to them - my boys weren't impressed at ALL!

Back in the day, I read not only Nancy Drew, but the Hardy Boys and Trixie Beldon. I love revisiting the older books.

Fun! I read all those, too, and Sue Barton also. You might enjoy "Confessions of a Teen Sleuth" by Chelsea Cain, a parody that continues the story of a grown-up Nancy. It's funny! BTW, those baby hats are much appreciated in the NICUs.......
