Books Read / Reviewed in March

I’ve been really good about reading books off my bookshelf. So far, I’ve only strayed a little bit to read The Girl in the Green Raincoat, but I think I’ve earned it. I did buy some new books adding to my book pile already reaching epic proportions in my tiny apartment. I also brought home a sizable stack of books I had left at my mom’s house. Luckily, those books are read, so now I just need to find a place to store them. =/

1. A soft place to land

2. French kissing

3. Old school : a novel

4. Not buying it : my year without shopping
5. A reliable wife : a novel

1. A Soft Place to Land – Susan Rebecca White

2. French Kissing – Catherine Sanderson

3. Old School – Tobias Wolff

4. Not Buying It – Judith Levine

5. A Reliable Wife – Robert Goolrick

Knitting has been slow for me this month. I spent a lot of time working on a puppy sweater for my friend’s little girl, Penny. This was my first ever dog sweater and it really gave me some trouble. I haven’t bought any new yarn since the Knitting Convention in Feb, but I haven’t really used any of my current yarn either.

My other crafting sessions have been making buttons. Thanks to the wonderful Chronicle Books, I won the Button Factory from a giveaway on their blog last week.

<——– The Button Factory

Comes with buttons, fabric, and the handle button presser.

The buttons! This is a great way to use up scrap fabrics (or fat quarter pieces). I plan on adding these buttons to my knitting projects. My favorite button is the baseball one. I think it deserves its own close-up. =)

How perfect is that?

You can find The Button Factory available on The Chronicle Books site, at Urban Outfitters, and at Barnes & Noble,
