I am pleased to introduce the Storm Cloud Sweater (or the Thunderhead Sweater? I’m not sure yet). It’s the same as the Sunset Sweater – a basic child’s raglan rollneck – but in a different color: gray mixed in with a little bit of dark sea-green and grayish-blue. It looks exactly like the way the sky looked tonight when I was driving home just before dark tonight. The Sunset Sweater is off needles, by the way – I just need to piece it and work the neck. I’m excited about both of these projects.
The book in the photo is Edward P. Jones’ All Aunt Hagar’s Children. I’ve had this book for many years – I bought it right around the time when Jones’ The Known World came out – but never opened it until last week. One of the stories we read in the workshop I took is in this book – the story is also called “All Aunt Hagar’s Children.” It was a fantastic story, and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the book soon.
And did I mention that I’m tired? I’m really, really tired. I’ve gone to bed before 9:00 each of the last four nights, and still I drag all day. I’m very much looking forward to a weekend of knitting, reading, writing, and perhaps a nap or two.
