Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up...Ginny of Small Things
It took me nearly the entire home school class semester (as that's when I have time to knit.)
It started as a project for me, but I soon realized that my gauge was off and I am not sized correctly either.
About half way through the project I changed it's purpose for someone else.
I learned a lot while making it as well.
I learned how to knit/purl in the front and back; I learned how to make button holes; I learned patience.
I frogged, I dropped stitches to fix previous errors, I found my knitting courage.
I love this pattern (shalom) and am going to make one for myself in the near future.
I'm thinking a nice heather grey.
I'm thinking three buttons (one for each tier.)
I'm thinking about not doing the shaping in order to have the front sides come together a bit more.
Yes, I have plans.
As for reading...I'm reading Harry Potter 4 (Goblet of Fire) to W.
We're also reading The Magic Tree House Series (for a home school class.)
And for me...I'm reading Anne of Green Gables (Yes mom...again.)
