Yarn Along and a Haircut

Made good progress on my yellow sweater this week. I'm almost complete with the body! Hoping to have this finished by first weekend in May for the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival.

If you remember, last week I was reading a book, Water From My Heart by Charles Martin.
Last week I wasn't sure about it. Well...after 100 pages the book completely hooked me and I stayed up late to finish it. It's now our book club pick for next month!

I started reading, My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout. I have read two of her books and I loved them. I'm loving this one too. One of my favorite books by her was Olive Kitteridge. I have friends that didn't like it at all. To each is own I guess! So far this little book is a joy to read and I wish I could just sit and read it in one sitting. (It's that kind of book)

And now to the HAIRCUT....
Mr. Chase decided on Friday afternoon that it would be a wise decision to CUT his own hair. Right in the front. Short. Very short. And also filled his hair with half a tub of thick gel. My husband was home with him and quickly discovered Chase's "new do". I came home and we both shook our heads, then started to laugh. Good thing he's a boy and it's easy to fix.
Off to the hairdresser we went.....going to be a while until those pretty curls grow back!

Have a great week. What are you knitting and reading?
