yarn along

It’s not terribly interesting, but I’m still working on the Lori Shawl and nearing the end.  Methinks I will need another skein of Quince + Co Sparrow in order to finish.  I am trying to figure out what my next project will be and sort of itching to cast on to something else, but haven’t decided on anything yet.

I picked up The Year of Miss Agnes from the library this week, just a quick, whimsical read about a teacher who comes to the small Athabaskan fishing village on the Koyukuk River.  She proves to be unorthodox in her methods, supposedly, so I’m curious.  Plus, Alaska.  Enough said.  I was re-watching Anne of Green Gables recently with my Phoebe girl, and reminded of what a great impact her teacher, Mrs. Stacy, had on her life.  I love the way she taught, the way she had the kids outside doing calisthenics, climbing a tree to see a bird’s nest, doing nature journaling, etc.  It’s helpful for me to cast some vision, I suppose, as I head into homeschooling in the fall.

Joining in with Ginny at Small Things today.

  1. Just came across your blog. I love how you incorporate knitting, reading, and your faith into your posts. I find that I am either on a reading spree or a knitting spree. Curious how you find time for both. I am going to pick up the book Wild and Free on your suggestion. Thanks for sharing!

    1. I sure do hope you like the Wild + Free book. I am almost done with it, will post a review soon. There were some aspects of it I loved, others I didn’t, but overall I still think it was a worthwhile read. As for finding time for all the hobbies, I guess I try to squeeze in a little bit of knitting and reading each evening before bed. Some days I can actually squeeze in a little more knitting sitting outside with the kids (though it’s usually pretty interrupted) or over a weekend, but I don’t usually have longer chunks of time to get a ton done. It’s frustrating sometimes, but the reality is just little bits of time here and there add up to a knitted project finished, or a book read, eventually. I’m glad you found my little blog and I’m happy you’re reading along! Hope you find time for your knitting + reading, too. 🙂
