Finished

I finally finished my Jaunty Jacket. The collar was very easy to finish. I really just had to actually get it started.
It fits perfectly. I am so happy! A much better result than Mom's vest. 
I think that now I will return to my Granny Square Roses. 
I am sort of tired of seeing them hang around my house. I can also work on these anywhere which make them easy to work on anytime. I believe I will make these into an afghan. I just have to decide how large I want it to be and whether I want to break the rose squares up with plain colored Granny Squares.

I am joining Ginny for Yarn Along this week. What are you knitting/crocheting? What are you reading? Pop on over to her site to see what other bloggers are up to.

As for reading, I seem to be on a romance novel kick. This is not for any reason except that I have been able to download them for free from the Apple Store on my mini-iPad or on my Kindle through Overdrive. I don't have any large chunks of reading time right now so these fit the bill. 
I have finished reading Since You've Been Gone by Anouska Knight. I never really cared about any of the characters in this book. I found the story fairly bland. I would not recommend it.
I also read Country Heaven by Ava Miles. This was a fairly good romance novel that actually had you interested in the characters. I even teared up a couple of times. I would be interested in reading the subsequent books in this series to find out what happens to the secondary characters. 
I have just started reading The Beach Quilt by Holly Chamberlain. This appears to be a mothers/teens relationship book. So far it is an easy read.

Thanks for stopping by!

Really beautiful jacket, Cathie--I'll bet you're so relieved that it fits. I don't knit, but I always wondered about getting something to fit well...
