Yarn Along

I finally got it together to join another Yarn Along hosted by Ginny! I finished (well 99%) the bear I was working on for our Little Bear but haven't been able to get him back to duplicate stitch around the neck and make it tighter. She named him Mr. Tunyon and he is well loved. The last finishing touches (eyes, nose, and mouth) are not as perfect as I would like so I have been reluctant to take pictures so far. I had intended to move on directly to knitting a little cardigan for Belle for next fall but when it came down to it, after swatching and everything, I just couldn't make peace with the colors. When I ordered the yarn it seemed perfect but now I am not so sure that an eggplant cardigan with black collar, button band, and cuffs is what I want to knit for her. In the meantime, Belle has been asking me to knit her "something pink". She found some light pink Debbie Bliss cathay yarn I had in my stash and has been wanting to play with it all the time. I am pretty sure this is the yarn she had in mind. So I cast on a lacy little spring cap for her a couple days ago.
Reading has been sparse around here lately, except for children's books. Isabelle has been enjoying Dr. Seuss lately, Fox in Socks especially. She as also been liking the Saggy Baggy Elephant, a Golden Book from my childhood. I have mostly been reading blogs and a page here and there from the books in my previous yarn along posts. So what are you knitting and reading?
