French Kids Eat Everything (Plus Knitting and Dyeing)

  Joining Ginny for Yarn Along today.  I’m reading – and loving! – French Kids Eat Everything.  This book rocks, and I can’t summarize it because there’s so much good info.  The story of a family who moves from Vancouver to France for a year, and discovers that their daughters (who only eat pasta and […]

Knitting & Reading

Joining Ginny today for Yarn Along – knitting and reading!  I know I just talked about Nourishing Traditions last time, but guess what?  They just released a book on Baby & Child Care, which I love love love.  We’re carrying it at the bakery, and I find it so satisfying to send home with people!  […]

Knitting & Reading

Joining Ginny today with knitting and reading for Yarn Along. I’m working hard to finish some lingering knitting projects – no new ones until I’m finished! I finished Gabriel’s Plain Pickle, and now this World’s Warmest Hat for my mother in law is almost done (only two years on the needles, ahem, sorry Nana!). Love […]

February – A Poem & A Sweater

Maybe my Gift of a Year is starting to sink in – since this gift arrived last week while driving Ella to school. Plus, I finally finished the baby’s birthday sweater. Sweet. February I saw it this morning – the dark clouds mounting the sky, and the sun climbing up anyway. The wind that blew […]

Yarn Along – The Gift of a Year

A few weeks ago, I saw this book on someone’s shelf.  It jumped out at me, and I immediately wrote down the title, and ordered it from the library.  The Gift of a Year.  I don’t want to say too much about it, because the book says it so well itself.  The Gift of a […]

Yarn Along – Plain Pickles & Yoga

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along . . . (Sorry for the dark photo – I’ve got to remember to take my yarn along shots earlier in the day!)  I’m about halfway done with Gabriel’s Plain Pickles cardigan – the body and one sleeve are finished.  It’s been nice and easy, just as I’d hoped, and […]

Yarn Along – Phoebe Sweater & Warmth

  Joining Ginny for Yarn Along . . .   Ella’s Phoebe sweater is coming along.  I have solid hopes that I’ll finish both the wee ones’ sweaters by Christmas.  For a moment, I got a little too excited and also started this hat for Ella, and a vest for the little babe.  Hmmm.  Like […]

Yarn Along – the first Molly Curly Sweater

Joining Ginny for Yarn Along . . . At last, after what seemed like a lot of work deciding on a sweater that I could make for both of my wee ones (it’s always faster to do the same pattern twice, and winter will be here before I know it), I cast on for the […]

Yarn Along

It’s been a while since I did a Yarn Along post with Ginny.  But I have slowly, slowly been working on my Oaklet shawl, and it’s getting big.  I’m on the lace border now, with my fingers crossed. I got French for Children for Ella from the library – after reading a lot of reviews […]

Yarn Along – Householder’s Guide to the Universe

Joining Ginny today for Yarn Along.  Books and knitting – so good.  I’m reading Steiner’s Discussions with Teachers, as prep to begin teaching Ella her letters, and really enjoying hearing his actual directions to teachers, instead of just hearing other people’s interpretations of his words.  Also, I’m reading, and loving the Householder’s Guide to the […]
