Just take a look at the chapter titles:
A Proper Welcome
Place for Chatting
A Bit of Quirk
Spots for Books, Drinks & Feet
A Doted-On Bedroom
Bath as a Room
Dinners with Friends
A Personal Narrative
A Sense of History
Don't you love those titles!!! I know, it makes you want to just sit down and read right through the book. I just wish there was a companion book with the title "The Perfectly Imperfect Wardrobe: How to Dress and Live in Elegant Comfort. I'm not sure I'm qualified to write that one.......
As for the wool----
I don't think I ever posted this sweet coat I knitted for Laura last spring. Really, it's only begun to fit her this spring.
For more ideas on what to read and knit, hop over to Ginny's blog for the weekly Yarn Along.
