On the needles, the Chloe for Amelia who is 4. I am knitting this in Berroco Vintage washable blend. I am using a very pale pink color. I love the color. I am having a problem with this pattern and the sizing and the number of stitches I have when it is time to separate for the sleeves. I could of swore I followed the directions exactly. I looked on Ravelry convinced that others have had the same problems I did. But, after reading what everyone else had to say, I must have messed up somewhere. No one mentioned any issues. So, I continue to knit and forge ahead and see what happens!
As for the reading, It is all about homemaking of some kind, knitting, and bread making. I really need to start baking our own bread again. I was commenting to Terry the other day about how much better we ate when we lived on the farm. We had a busier life in terms of our daily work, but I always had time to bake bread, make yogurt and cheese. I am not sure what happened. I feel like I never have time now. I am re-committing to trying to get more whole, homemade food into our diet.
My library stash:
Boho Baby Knits: Groovy Patterns for Cool Tots- I saw a very sweet vest in here that I thought would be so cute for John Paul.
If you will indulge me with one more picture-
John Paul woke up early from his nap so he cuddled up with me on the couch and fell back to sleep in my arms. What else should I do? Knit of course! I think this is the thing I love most about knitting, really, with all things handmade. It is the moments and memories that are woven in with each item. I will never forget that afternoon nap.
