I have the uncanny ability to give away what I knit before taking a final picture. Why is that? I think, perhaps, that I get a little too excited to give away something I have made, that the actual documentation portion of the craft falls a bit short. I had hoped to take a picture of the three little pockets that I made for the girls this past weekend, unfortunately, it didn't happen.
I was really happy with them, and the girls really liked them. The entire day was a success! I even had the opportunity to show my niece how to finger knit, and she picked it up immediately. She made an adorable "skinny" scarf out of the left over yarn from the pockets. Of course I didn't get a picture of that either...
As far as reading goes, it is the time of year when I start thinking about local eating, and how I wish all of my food came from local sources. Yet, I am still drinking tea and coffee and buying bananas every week :-)
I think that Plenty: Eating Locally on the 100-Mile Diet and Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life were the first books about eating an entirely local, seasonal diet. These books have been on my shelves for a couple years now, and every spring I seem to want to read them again. We are able to source the majority of what we would need, food wise, locally. However, I haven't made the jump yet, to say that I will only eat was is available locally. It is something that I think about a lot though. It is something that I have talked to my husband about doing for years. Maybe this year will be the year we make that leap.
Do you source the majority of your food locally? Are you scared to make the commitment to only eat locally, like I am?
I am joining in with Ginny and her yarn along this week.
