I haven't participated in the Yarn Along Wednesday for a couple of weeks now, so I thought I would post today. I like to post when I have new things to show but it is also nice to keep consistent and I love doing these Yarn Along posts. When I think of Wednesday now, I associate it with Ginny's Yarn Along link up. I posted a blog entry about finishing the back piece of the sweater on Monday this week, and since that time, I have started knitting the front piece of the sweater. I am still working on reading Amy Shumer's book which is hilarious as one would guess. I love her style of writing because I feel like she writes exactly how she speaks so you feel like she is speaking to you. I loved her in the movie Trainwreck and have been a fan ever since. I see some similarities from the movie in her autobiography, she probably used some experiences from her own life for the movie. Below is a photo of the knitting I have done so far for the front piece of the sweater along with the book The Girl with The Back Tattoo by Amy Shumer.

Here is an updated photo of my plants. Two of the African Violets are thriving but one is droopy and has no flowers. I gave them all Africa Violet food this afternoon so I am hoping this helps them. The aloe plant to the left was a gift from my friend and it is doing very well, the two succulents are still doing well. The rhoeo plant is doing okay but it is not as tall as when I got it. It is a tropical plant so it is probably having a hard time with the lack of light on the windowsill. I have a bamboo plant on its own in the kitchen and it is doing very well too. I read an article in the Toronto Star about how people in Toronto have a lot of plants now and they treat them as their babies because they can't have pets in their building(like us), and don't have children yet.. I can relate.
