Yarn Along--Two down, four to go
I am back, joining Ginny for another fun Yarn Along, this time feeling somewhat jubilant because I finally have this sweater done (Ravelry notes here)! Well, officially, it is not really done, as I still need to make a drawstring for the hood and sew a casing for it, and sew on a button. but all the knitting is done, and I am ready to cast on again. Almost ready. It is supposed to be 102 degrees today, and playing with wool isn't quite as appealing as it might be with a chill in the air...
I am still reading loads of books! In the morning, besides scripture and Divine Intimacy, I occasionally read a few pages of a biography on St. Elizabeth Ann Seton. I am still reading aloud Redwall to the kids (so much fun that one...dinner's been late a time or two because I couldn't stop myself!); on my bedside table are A Little Way of Homeschooling and Real Learning: Education in the Heart of the Home. With so many to read and so much time spent in pursuits other than reading, these books will be with me a while!
