Itching for something new on the needles, I cast on the Daphne scarf last night, having fallen in love with the pattern online a couple weeks ago. I'm using some of the yarn that my sister Colleen gave me for being one of her bridesmaids, and this particular yarn is KnitPicks Shine Worsted in the color wisteria. This is just one pattern repeat of the scarf (12 repeats to go), but I'm loving the delicacy of the leaves. I've never knitted a pattern like this (I've already had to look up how to do one of the stitches!), but I'm an eager learner, and so far things seem to be progressing well!
I also just started reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. I like it so far. I think the author does a wonderful job of telling stories, and unlike many memoirs, it doesn't feel cliché or overly-contrived. The stories truly speak for themselves.
