Yarn Along: October 4
My, my, my. Wasn't I here a few weeks ago waxing about how I was just about to finish Lily's sweater? And here it is, still on the needles, albeit with a sleeve and a half more than where I left it. I guess knitting gets the backburner when life's little obstacles get in the way. But I am happy to report that after a couple of weeks of such little obstacles (sniffles, and long commutes, and the ever-present household chores), we are all feeling back in business. And even during those challenging couple of weeks I have made some progress, and it is close, oh so close to being done.
I'm going through Little House in the Big Woods, one chapter a day, with the two little girls, and we all love it and love to recount what we read to Ben at the dinner table. I really believe those books never get old, don't you think?
Oh, and I must add, I was sitting right there, beside the cute little baby and the knitting and the book the second before and after I snapped the photo: doesn't it look just a bit precarious? And you'll see the handiwork of two little "gardeners" who took out the dirt from the basil pots and did some planting of their own on our deck. I suppose God gives us rain for a reason.
Linking in with Ginny and friends at the Yarn Along today!
