…Joining Ginny’s YarnAlong, sharing what I’m knitting and reading…
I saw Andee’s Abalone and loved it. I’d been wanting to knit something that we could photograph our handmade shawl pins on, to post in the shop. After seeing her project, it looked like the perfect thing for that. (Plus I’ll get to wear and enjoy it too, of course. So much knitting for me lately, which feels like such a treat.) The yarn came from Black Sheep Gathering last year. It’s handspun and has a beautiful variety of natural colors. Bracken saw me smelling it and saying how much I liked the smell (that comforting scent of sheep) and now he comes over to sniff my knitting regularly.
I wrote recently that I was happy Bracken likes chapter books now and we’ve really been on a roll with them. It started with Jeff reading ‘The World of Pooh’ to him. At the time I thought he might be too young for it to keep his interest because there weren’t as many pictures as he was used to, but he loved it. Awhile after they had finished it, Bracken asked me to read it to him and we usually went through a chapter each night before bed. Then we started ‘Little House in the Big Woods’. We just finished both of those books. Now Jeff is currently reading ‘The Children of Noisy Village’ each night before bed. We’re all enjoying it. I came across it some time ago and felt drawn to it, what a delightful find it’s turned out to be. Any favorite children’s chapter books you’d recommend?
How about you? Knitting? Reading?
