Yarn Along


Well, the knitting came with me on the trip, and I made a little bit of progress. I love how my shalom is knitting up and hope with the long weekend coming up I might get it finished for next week. Fingers crossed.

I have just ordered some more of Linda's lovely patterns, a few requested by my little man. It looks like I will be knitting up a wolf, fox and dog in the very near future.

Doula reading is going well and I am trying to finish up When Children Love to Learn before I get started on another book. This magazine has been taking up a little of my reading time too.

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

Joining in with Ginny and Nicole

    1. Thanks Lydia! I love Linda's patterns, or at least the one I have tried. I knit up the whale for Reece for Valentine's Day. Great patterns, easy to follow and quick to knit up. I think they would make great gifts.

  15. Your book sounds really good! I am still trying to figure out what type of "homeschooler" my family is. I have decided on eclectic because I like too many different philosophies :-) And my oldest is not yet 5 :-)

    1. We are in the same boat. I actually don't think we will fall into a type of homeschooler, we will just go with the flow and use what works when it works. My little man is only 4, so right now is all about play, play and more play :)
