Nearing the end of November and the beginning of the Advent season now, and it has been weeks now since I posted. I do hope to have my computer issues remedied soon but there just has been no time or energy! I’m a bit technology adverse too so I’m sure that doesn’t help. I do have so many photos and things to share which does motivate me to press through the tedium of technology changes to get photos uploaded.
For now, just a simple yarn along post to pop in and say hello, to share what I’ve been knitting and reading lately. I finished Philippa’s birthday sweater in good time for her birthday and she really loves it. Pretty quickly afterward I cast on Noah’s birthday sweater. I’m knitting him a beautiful cabled sweater, which does move a little slower for me and requires more attention, but it will be worth it.
The kids and I have been reading Secret of the Woods aloud. It was a bit slow to get into, but we are really enjoying it. The way the author describes his observations of animals in the woods seems to slow us all down and immerse us in that natural setting, having such a calming effect. The stories are memorable, too. The kids often recount things learned from this book as we encounter an animal in our own nature explorations.
I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving and may you have a sweet start to the Christmas season.
