This is my first time joining Ginny's Yarn Along. I'm reading Charlottes Web to the kids, a chapter a night at bedtime. I think I missed out on this one as a kid, because the story is totally unfamiliar to me and incredibly enjoyable. This very old copy is falling apart at the spine and I'm not quite sure how to fix it. Its like all the old glue has gone brittle and cracked.
I'm knitting a Tea-Leaves. This is number two for me. I finished the first one around autumn this year and I've worn (read - trashed) it every day since! Its holding up well despite the fact that the wool is a relatively cheap merino. I'm using the same wool for this one in a black this time. I haven't decided whether I'm going to keep this for good wear or rotate it with the current one. Such a beautiful, simple and easy to wear cardi.
