yarn along ~ january 19

Stop by Ginny’s Yarn Along and see what others are knitting and reading this week.
On the needles: My first longies are almost finished.  Instead of ruffled cuffs I went with ribbing to match the waist.  Still debating whether or not I will add some sort of embroidered embellishment—I want to see how well they fit my niece first, and I still need to make a drawstring.  I’m also knitting a gauge swatch for a Five Fruits Sweater for Spud; it won’t have the rainbow stripes, but I really like the style of the pattern.
Off the bookshelf: We’re reading a lot of Richard Scarry’s The Best Word Book Ever around here.  All 70 pages of it . . . over and over again.  I love looking at the detailed illustrations as I read, and Spud is obviously soaking all of it up like a little sponge.
