I’ve not yet finished A Charlotte Mason Companion, but a big tempting stack of books came into the library for me and I figured I better start in on them in order to finish up before they are due back. Also, it’s nice to have a bit of time to think things over and digest before moving on.
I just finished reading The Snow Child, which was enchanting and just the right sort of reading for these grey winter days. Our current family read-aloud is Happy Times in Noisy Village which is keeping the middle set giggling.
I know I recently posted a picture of Iain’s sweater, but it’s really Mairi’s sweater, a fair isle featuring a snowflake motif, that I’ve been working on. In sock weight yarn with size 3 needles, it’s been slow going, but I’m finally getting close now. With no deadline and no pressure to finish from myself or anyone else, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying the process. I’m looking forward to seeing her wearing it. Just this morning I came to the conclusion that I do not have enough yarn to finish the button bands. sigh. I have an abundance of every other color. Just not that color. Meh.
