Knitting Baby Toy and Reading On

 Hello Friends,


I hope you are doing well. I haven't been blogging for a few weeks simply because I finished the other baby gifts, then didn't know what to knit next. I have so much of the baby yarn left from the blanket and the hat, that I wanted to knit some more things for my nephew Luca, so I am now going to work on a baby toy for him to snuggle with. I found a pattern called simple bunnies on Ravelry by Julia VR. I seem to be drawn to patterns with the word "simple" lately. Maybe because there is a lot going on in my life right now and a simple knit appeals to me. I am liking quick knits and simple patterns that I can do in the midst of a busy time. 


I casted on the bunny toy/blanket so far and I like how it is forming the blanket part of the toy. I like the eyelet stitch detail around the blanket. for this pattern, I am using snuggly wuggly yarn by Loops & Threads in the colorway soft gray. I am knitting on size US 6 4mm circular needles.

For reading, I am still reading mostly the Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin and started reading The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood. I have a lot of books on the go that I pick up and read here and there. I want to work more on finishing some of these books soon, since I have had so many piling up.
