Knitting and reading

Joining Ginny from Small Things and Nicole from Frontier Dreams for all sorts of craftiness.


The camera just does not do justice to this yummy yarn. It is Lion Brand Nature's Choice Organic Cotton in Almond. It is like knitting with clouds. I started out wanting to knit this, but then decided to do my own thing with that pattern as an inspiration. It will be so cozy, and because I live in Arizona, just enough for a cool fall or winter evening... since we get so few really cold ones.


And I pulled this off the bookshelf AGAIN. I so much need it right now, and so I am diving in and enjoying the swim.

As a youngish nana ;) helping to raise grandkids, I need this book :) Today is not a calm day at all, although I'm striving for it to be simple! Very pretty yarn ~ it's calming me as I type!

It looks lovely even if the photo doesn't do it justice. I think I need another go at Simplicity Parenting too - things are getting too crazy around here.

there are a few books I always pull back out for parenting. My bible is: How to Talk so Kids Will Listen and Listen So They Will Talk."

Beautiful yarn and something I will have to look for here since we don't have a lot of use for wool either.

Oh I can't wait to see your finished knitting. I so hear you about rereading SP. I find myself reaching for it all the time.
