Well another hat is done! Four Christmas presents ready to go, and yes it does feel good. I am taking a break from Christmas knitting now and casting on some baby knits. I have quite a few friends expecting this fall and winter so some lovely knits will be most welcome during the long, cold, dark days of winter. I think I am going to try my hand at the Milo. I have seen it many times on Yarn Along and really love it. I have downloaded the pattern and now have to convince myself that I can knit in the round. I have tried a few times without much success. Wish me luck!
On the reading front, I needed a little break from all the heavy reading I had been doing – Coyote’s Guide to Connecting with Nature and doula reading, while both enjoyable, I just needed a little break. So last week when Reece and I went camping I brought along Up by Patricia Ellis Herr. It is a very easy, enjoyable read which I finished up on the weekend. It is the true story of a mother and her five year old daughter and their adventure climbing the forty eight highest peaks in New Hampshire. It was a delightful read and now I really want to visit New Hampshire.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
