I am really pleased with it and look forward to seeing it on one of those lovely babies arriving this fall. I will be casting on another one in the lovely rich merino wool above.
On Friday we decided to take a little trip to the mall. We don’t do this very often, but it was so hot and we just needed to find a cool spot to walk around for a bit, so the mall it was. We stopped in at Chapters and I was drawn to a book and have not been able to put it down. Family Wisdom From the Monk Who Sold His Ferrari: Nurturing the Leader Within Your Child by Robin Sharma has been by my side since Friday. It is a delightful read, a captivating story and full of little lessons and great quotes. I know after this first reading I will read it again, making notes as I go of the quotes I like and the little life lessons along the way.
What are you knitting and reading this week?

Beautiful baby vest!! I think the sweater looks lovely without cables. Maybe next time if you're in the mood. You are really knitting up a storm these days!ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I am really enjoying my knitting right now, baby knits are so much fun!Delete
Oh your Milo turned out so nice! Your choice for books this week sounds really great and I think would be very helpful while raising boys.(my boys, in particular) I will have to check it out. What color will your next milo be?ReplyDelete
Thanks. It is a really great book, and I think it would be great for any parent. It is more than just about parenting though, there are life lessons in it for all of us.Delete
Next milo will be in the orange coloured yarn in the picture. I have the top part done and it looks great.
You did a wonderful job on your Milo Kim and the yarn for the next one is very pretty. I am so glad you are enjoying knitting, it brings me a lot of joy too. I now wonder how I went all those years without knowing how!ReplyDelete
Thanks Tracey, I am really pleased with it. And I know, I use to knit way back when and stopped, not sure why, but so wish I had gotten back to it much sooner.Delete
Oh, that's adorable! I love the simplicity of it. I finally got around to sewing something for my fall babe, now maybe it's time to pick up the needles as well. It's interesting how different my energy level is with this second pregnancy. Any "down time" I have I run for the couch for a few moments of rest. Although, I suppose I could knit while resting. Maybe I'll give it a try. Maybe ;)ReplyDelete
Ah, the joys of a second pregnancy. It is not uncommon, I hear that from a lot of my clients. Having to chase a toddler around doesn't help either :)Delete
And thanks on the vest, I like the simplicity of it too. In fact I like simple with just about everything.
Your milo is very cute! I've just finished my third and have tried the cable, owl and heart motifs.ReplyDelete
Thanks Emma. I really like the look of the owl motif, one day I will try it.Delete
You did it! And it looks fantastic!! Hooray!ReplyDelete
I did!! Thanks :)Delete
That books sounds great and I really like your vest - you have inspired me to give that pattern a try.ReplyDelete
It is and thanks, happy to inspire. Can't wait to see your milo.Delete
Your Milo is adorable! I have that book somewhere. I will have to go and find it.ReplyDelete
I'm just finishing up a vest like this!! So cute. I'll need to check out that book.ReplyDelete
Can't wait to see it!Delete
Adorable! Your book sounds fascinating, I will have to find that one :)ReplyDelete
Thanks Kate. And the books is great, I still have more to read, but so far I am loving it and being inspired.Delete
A very productive week for you. Well done Kim. xxooReplyDelete
It was Julie, thanks.Delete
So cute! And the book sounds interesting.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the visit and encouragement, Kim :)ReplyDelete
Your milo is beautiful - I am sure the recipients would be absolutely delighted!
That book looks very good, too. I must look it up.
Oh yes - thanks for the tip on the amber necklace - Bea does wear one and we think it really helps.
Take care, happy knitting and catch you soon.
