Knit the Classics

I'm turning into such a joiner. I've just joined Knit the Classics. We read a classic novel and then create a knit or crochet project inspired from the book. I think there is a swap involved, but I'm not exactly sure how it works, will have to go over the blog site and make sure I'm following along.
Still haven't decided what to make for my secret pal. I create bead kntted items that I think she might like, but am tempted to make something from the book. Decisions decisions, what to do ?
I'm getting ready to send the July swap, I want to make some stitch markers, I've been inspired by all the great markers I've seen on the blogs.
Have a great Canada Day long weekend.

From my secret pal

Hey knitalie, thanks for the great skein of bamboo yarn. It is a beautiful hot pink. I've been eyeing the bamboo and wanting to try it. My daughter is expecting her first baby in a couple of weeks and we are all hoping for a girl, I have 3 grandson. This will make a perfect baby bolero, or petal bib, I can't wait!!
Thanks again knitalie, it is perfect.

I am participating in One Skein Secret Pal exchange. Haven't gotten anything yet, but am amazed at the great exchanges I have seen on the web site. Pals are very generous. I have sent my pal her gift and she said she liked it.
