I finally finished my yellow shawl that I started last year! It's so warm and soft. I don't remember what the yarn is but I got it at Hobby Lobby on clearance so they probably don't carry it any more. I knitted it on a loom. I like loom knitting I think it's fun and easy.

I really enjoyed Two Tickets to the Christmas Ball by Donita K. Paul. I didn't find it overly preachy. My real problem with it was the romance. Cora and Simon's romance seems to revolve more around his sister than each other. But she's very likable so I overlooked it. It's a fun fast read.
Favorite quote: "Maybe we can invent the monkey trot."
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review.
4 our of 5.

It's Your Room: a Decorating Guide for Real Kids offers a nice overview of decorating your bedroom. Written and illustrated for kids it seems seems more aimed at teens who have a lot of freedom to do what they want.
