My awesome friend, Anna, gave me a few skeins of some yarn- homespun from her brother's sheep farm. It is really rustic and awesome, and I decided that it would make the most adorable little stuffed sheep for someone's Easter basket. There is something kind of funny and fitting about taking wool from a sheep and knitting it back into a sheep. It is knitting up quick and easy and I am having fun with it. Hopefully it will look something along the lines of this:
I am currently reading Hold On to Your Kids: Why Parents Need to Matter More Than Peers, by Neufeld and Mate. I picked it up for a nonfiction bookclub through a local homeschooling group (though book club was last night and I certainly did not have it all read. They didn't mind...the sign of a good book club!) So far it is pretty good- it definitely hits all the usual attachment parenting ideas. It is a bit heavy on worst-first what-if thinking for my taste- if your children are more attached to their peers than to you THIS AND THIS AND THIS AND THIS AND THIS AWFUL TERRIBLE THING WILL HAPPEN. All valid, but not likely. But it certainly worth the read. Note to self...next time get the audio book...then I could read AND knit at the same time...and possibly finish one, if not both, of these projects!
