Yarning Along with Ginny this week …
on the needles: Still working on a Christmas scarf for Spud. Today he ‘casually’ mentioned that he would like a stocking cap for Christmas. Tonight he told Cowboy that that’s what he thinks I’m working on. Guess it won’t be much of a surprise, but it will be appreciated!
off the bookshelf: I’m reading the latest edition of The Read-aloud Handbook by Jim Trelease. I picked up an earlier edition a few years ago, but never really got into it. This time around is a different story; I really appreciate his common sense approach to the value of reading aloud. He backs everything up with research in a way that’s accessible and easy to understand. Spud and I continue our Little House marathon (he will not hear of reading some other sort of book). I think it’s been going on for over a year now. We just slogged through another go-round of the The Long Winter, and now we’re on to happier times in Little Town on the Prairie.
What are you knitting and reading this week?
