|That little book is my Knitting Journal.|
For the first time in a long time I am not knitting every day. My best knitting time is when the children do math, or when they read to me. Since school is out, I am busy with more hands-on things. We spend all morning making and playing with play dough, and then moved on to paper machè. And I cannot really knit while they do that.
I really want to read more, but I did not do much of that, either. (The house is much cleaner, I should just add.) I reread a bit of "The Creative Family" by Amanda Blake Soule. I am listening to "The Borrowers" - I loved the movie (The Secret Life of Arrietty), but the book is a bit darker and ask more questions. There is a lot of distrust, more than what I am comfortable with, so far. I appreciate that the author addresses the fact that they are actually stealing, but the characters are just a little bit too flawed. I mean, "Because of Winn-Dixie" is not all moonshine and roses either, but at least the characters were likable, and the book had a message of hope. But maybe I should not judge too soon, I still have to listen to about another hour. Jean loved the movie, but hated the audio book, so I am not too optimistic.
I am joining in with Ginny's yarn along over at Small Things, again. I love it, it is like a weekly play date!
