I also began some overalls for baby gifts for a couple friends of mine expecting a boy at the end of the month and one with a girl the same age (to the day!) as my second son.

|Taken in good light. True to original yarn colors.|
|Finished...all I need are buttons!|
Still reading The House of Mirth, although very slowly. I am enjoying it though.
Went to a Reagan dinner on Sunday in honor of the former president and Veteran's Day. A man who defected from communist Czechoslovakia told the story of his family escaping during the Cold War. It was very moving and it gave me chills. My husband bought his book about their journey to America so I will share the book with you once I start reading it. If you want a sneak preview it is called Journey for Freedom by Peter Vodenka.
Also, we hired a contractor yesterday (Tuesday) morning to replace our roof. Due to the season, it will be getting done by the end of the week so check back Sunday or Monday for before and after photos.
Have a wonderful week! Happy knitting!
