It has been a long time since I’ve joined The Yarn Along, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy knitting. The children slept in this morning, and I made some progress on fingerless mitts (the WIP ones are for Bea’s upcoming 11th birthday. I will needle-felt designs on them when I’m finished.
The Yarn Along is about what we’re knitting and reading. I’m not currently reading any novels (because lately I’m up typing book chapters late at night while the kids are in bed, instead of reading), but a whole bag full of books we ordered just came in at the library. George is fascinated with camping and bison, so we have several books about both right now.
When Hal finished his Explode The Code lesson, the boys worked on polishing play kitchen utensils with our homemade beeswax-orange oil wood polish while I read to them.
Just like his mama, sometimes it is hard for Hal to sit still and focus on one activity unless his hands are occupied with a task. He does not know how to knit yet, and simple handwork projects like this one appeal to him.
I hope you have a restful and regenerative weekend.
