I finished the body and am onto the first sleeve of Philippa’s birthday sweater, which I’m knitting with yarn I dyed myself. I’m really happy with it! It’s probably time to hunt for buttons. The weather has turned colder here and I always feel a bit caught by surprise when I start digging through bins of children’s winter clothes and layers and discover what we are short on. It seems wren needs a few more warm layers, and I’m wanting to cast on all the things.
I didn’t finish Home Education Vol. 1 (affiliate link) but it was due back at the library. I made it about half way and I would recommend it and probably should buy it for myself. The Liturgy of the Ordinary (affiliate link) is a book Brandon gave me for my birthday back in June and I’ve been forcing myself to wait to read it. If you’ve been around my blog for any time at all, you know that this theme of the sacred found in the ordinary is the theme I seem to orbit around the most and find the most fascinating. I’m planning on going on a little solo retreat early November and was hoping to read it then but I couldn’t wait, so I started it the other evening. I love it already.
What are you reading and making lately?
