Playing with paper

I have been playing around with paper lately.
I made these little 16 page books. Then added
a book cover to them. They are made from a single sheet of paper.
they are kind of tricky to make. But a Fun little project. I watched videos
on Youtube to learn how to make them.
This is something that I am going to for sure show my Granddaughter how to make.

My sweater is coming along slow but sure.
This is the right front half of the sweater.
I have finished making the decreases for the V in the front.
Now I will start the increases to make the left side of the front of the sweater.
That is a very deep V in the front of a sweater.
But stitches will be picked up in the front making a Yoke on the sweater.
So far the pattern is very easy.
I just Need more time to Knit!!!

I have decided to knit a sweater.
I have knit the swatch.
I usually don't swatch, but for
this pattern if you do not swatch,
you will not know how many stitches to cast on.
I am using size 7 needles, and I have cast on 115 stitches.
