I am working on another yoked sweater. A very small one this time for a new little extended family member. I'm going to make a matching bonnet as well. I love knitting little sweaters, not only are they cute, I find them a good way to understand techniques. I can how it all comes together much faster when knitting for a little person!
Sketching and then coloring the Jesse Tree ornaments contines to be so much fun. I love going over the scripture passages and then finding a way to represent them in art. How lovely and soothing the act of creating is!
I finished Middlemarch and I liked it despite the fact that I was not as impressed by Ladislaw as I think I was supposed to be. I was not convinced that he was right for Dorothea.And I didn't feel like I knew him well enough to be convinced.
Of I the couples in Middlemarch, Fred and Mary were certainly my favorite. They would be, my husband and I are high school sweethearts! Following their story was a lot of fun.
I love that Middlemarch was so much about married people. So many books end with marriage but this one kept going, for better or for worse. It made me think productively about my own marriage and I am thankful for that.
The book in my photo is an old used book of children's poetry, Here, There, and Everywhere by Dorothy Aldis. My kids and I have been having a blast reading the poems over! She has such delightful humor and good insight into how children think. Her other poetry books are definitely going to the top of my wishlist!
