From where I stand…
I’m almost done with my hubby’s mitts. They are long over due, like most of my knitting <3 They are also a tester for some mitts for some really awesome teens!

I’m thinking about making some book buddies. Anyone local want to do a book trade with Indigo? I want it to be local to cut down on mailing/packaging costs.

I’m also thinking about preschool/pre-K curriculum and all the art I want to make this year.

Cheers!!!

Things We Do

As per our family usual, we are doing things at our own pace. With many different needs of our three very different kiddos this way of living suites us best and allows for optimal parenting choices. Needless to say, I was not on time for Yarn Along with Small Things once again but no matter (use link to find out more about this weekly online event). I figure better late than never. This lifestyle choice has released me from a lot of my stress. Stress that goes back to my childhood. There is less family arguments and more enjoyment in our outings, as it should be.
Love to you and yours,
Nico
P.S. Enjoy the pictures below. Summer is almost gone, bring on the Autumnal joy.

Yarn Along!

Yarn Along via Small Things: sharing your yarn creations and your current reads 🙂


Today I’m contemplating friendship and reviewing which tech-knitting book I would like to purchase for my birthday in May. I’m split between Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Knitting Rules! and Jackie Pawlowski’s Field Guide to Knitting.
I’m leaning towards the Yarn Harlot Stephanie and her simple yet straightforward advice. It also has other little tid-bits about life in the knitters lane to ease the rigidity that book guides can have. What do you think?

I’m still working on Sea Foam Progression Inspired baby legs, they are turning out wonderfully.

This week I’ve finished the hat and booties that my Mother ordered from me for a friend who’s having  a baby boy.

Join Ginny and friends over at Small Things for the weekly Yarn Along! every Wednesday.

Peace, love and baby booties!
