Yarn AlongPosted: May 26, 2011
I’ve decided to keep myself accountable in both my Crocheting and my reading I am going to start joing the Yarn along over at Small Things. The idea is to post about both the book your reading your yarn project!
Right now I’m finishing up reading Simplicity Parenting: Using the Extraordinary Power of Less to Raise Calmer, Happier, and More Secure Kids. I am seriously loving it!!! A lot of the thoughts go along with things my husband and I both already believe, such as less toys, minimal screen time (if at all), fresh foods. The idea is the simpler life is in childhood the more adjusted adult your child will be. I only have a few pages left so hopefully tonight or tomorrow i can finish the next book which i have been reading. 🙂
My current Yarn project is a big one. I am in love with Dottie Angel’s patchwork blanket. So i decided i would attempt it, seemed easy enough. Especially for me a novice of almost 15 years (that’s how little i do this) who’s never done a project of this size before! I’ve had a few little mishaps so far, and lost count a lot! but its turning out good. Mine was gonna be 4 squares across but i’ve decided to add a 5th for balance with the colors i have randomly placed amongst the light grey wool felt i am in love with!!!
Well i off i go to work on those exact two things! a little reading time and then a movie with my hubby while i crochet away. I’m half way done and can’t wait to see it done!
Now head over and see the other projects and books!
