Last week I was bemoaning my Knitting Woes and this week I am singing a happier tune. I bought new yarn...
And cast on a new project! I have been needing a blue shawl. It is funny, because blue is really not my favorite color, I like it, but you know... Anyway, I own a lot of blue clothes. I think it is because I was in my youth in the late 80's and early 90's. The era of black. If I could I would wear all black, all the time. But then you get comments like, "Where's the funeral?" So I think I started wearing blue, because it felt like a relatively safe color... for someone who likes to wear black... a lot.
So I figured it was time to make a new shawl to match most of my wardrobe. I saw this beautiful shall by Ysolda called Stac Shoaigh. It is gorgeous and I can't wait to see it all finished.
As for reading, I am reading a ton! You should see my nightstand right now. But I thought I would just simply share with you this book that everyone is talking about. Give Your Child the World by Jamie Martin (of Simple Homeschool) put together this wonderful complication of literature for children which can transport them around the world!
I was particularly excited about it, because I thought it would go well with the middle school world studies unit I worked on many years ago.
So far I am very excited about it. It looks amazing and I am looking forward to meeting some new books from her recommendations.
