Yarn Along


More baby knitting in these parts: although this week, I am becoming slightly more pragmatic, working on a short sleeved Rhino Romper in cotton, so hopefully the little one can wear some hand-knit items in the summer.

And, in another change of pace, I am actually reading a book for myself (along, of course, with several books to the littles): a hand me down copy of One Thousand Gifts. This book is absolutely beautiful: not only is it filled with spiritual insight and wisdom, but it is done so through the metaphors of life at home with children, with utmost humility and honesty. My days have been filled with little gratitude pauses, and those of you who have embarked upon a practice of gratitude know how transformational it can be!

I'm playing along with Ginny and friends again this week-- I'm looking forward to gathering up some knitting and reading inspiration.

You are a knitting fiend! It looks great. I'm glad you're enjoying the book! You should write your own one of these days... :)

Thanks for all the feedback about the colors! I'm still figuring out the whole "boy clothing" thing, so I had a moment's hesitation about my color choice. For the time being, I'm embracing a wide palate of colors for this little one. :-)
