Yarn Along and Give away winners!

Sadly I can not post a single picture! I am having an "issue" with my blogger account, it is saying I have used all of my photo space, and yet when I got to look at it, it says I am only using 23%. Confusing!

Anyway, I have been busy knitting gnome hats (some of these and then some from here) I just have three more hats to knit... for a total of 8! And I started a pair of mittens from the Taproot issue 3, and I am still working on two sweater vests. I am toying with making my dear husband a scarf to go with his hat and mittens, that is if I have enough yarn AND enough time. (Maybe if I stopped reading blogs and checking Facebook I would have more time to knit. haha)
I am reading "World War Z", my oldest son suggested it, and so we made a deal, he reads "Omnivores Dilemma" and I will read "World War Z". It is actually pretty good, and I guess they are going to make a movie out of it. Should be interesting to see how they make it into a movie, as it is written as if the author was interviewing people 10 years since the war ended.

I LOVE goat's milk soap and lotion. I scent my body oil with nag champa too! I love the blue yarn your making the sweater vest out of.

You are not the only one having problems, I have read several blogs with the same issue, something must be out of sink with Blogger.
Sounds like lots of knitting is going on in your home, the count down is on ;)
I read Omnivores Dilemma and had my son read the teenage version, it opened the door for a lot of great talks.

Hope your account gets iced ASAP! We all really enjoyed listening to The Omnivore's Dilemma on book cd as a family. We followed it up with Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. The kids and I learned s much. I hope you enjoy it as we'll.

I have been meaning to read that book. How frustrating to not be able to post your photos! Good luck finishing everything in time.

It's hard to picture World War Z as a movie --- maybe one of those fake documentaries?

Noémie said...
