This week, I'm still working on my scarf. I've moved on to a new color, a creamy winter white. I'm enjoying working with wool. It's not as scratchy as I always assumed it would be. It even feels soft on my face and neck (I test it often). The scarf is about six feet long already but I think I'll add one more section of color. I can't wait to wear it. I've been clearing out my closet and dresser drawers lately, trying to streamline my wardrobe. I have a lot of scarves and have been weeding through them as well. I think it will be nice to keep the ones I've made, or have been made for me, and send some of the others on. This will give me an excellent reason to make a few more for myself too. I already have a general plan in mind for at least one more. I like having an assortment; it's often warm enough here in the winter, due to the sun, that I can just throw on a scarf with a sweater, no coat needed.
I'm reading the final book in Jennifer Worth's series, Call the Midwife: Farewell to the East End. I finished Shadows of the Workhouse over the weekend. That was a very sad book but I'm glad I read it; I like to know what other people have experienced. This last book is my favorite so far of the three, I think. I really like reading about pregnancy and birth. I had difficult experiences myself, and sometimes find it hard emotionally to read about certain aspects, but in general I'm very interested in the work of midwives, and most of these stories do have happy endings. I have to say that one thing I love about this book is the cover, especially the photo from Chummy's wedding. I haven't read about her wedding yet but I'm really looking forward to it. I like all the midwives, but Chummy is my favorite.
