knitting and reading

I took a bit of a knitting break last week.  It was out of necessity!  I have had some very generous friends give me hand-me-downs for the new baby, and it is A LOT to go through!  I'm not even sure I will be done before our new little one comes in two months.

Needless to say, I am still working on the band around this beautiful hat.  And I am also realizing that I need another skein of this beautiful purple yarn.  I thought I would be able to eek out enough, but maybe my gauge is off.  It will be really pretty once it is finished know...if it gets finished!

As far as reading goes, I just picked up the newish book by Dave Ramsey, Smart Money, Smart Kids.  It is a really great read so far!  I love the ideas that he has in order to teach your kids about money.  There is a lot of really good information in here, and I think I am going to start incorporating that into our homeschool.  It is never too early to learn about money I think, especially with the way the economy is and how expensive everything seems to be.  

What are you knitting and/or reading this week?

Joining in with Ginny, Tami, and Nicole. 


  1. So very true about teaching children about money. I am knitting a Menehune Shawl and reading Do Hard Things by Alex & Brett Harris.

  2. I did not know you were expecting. Congrats! That sounds like a great book.

  3. The earlier they learn about the money the better it is for them. I hate running out of yarn! I had that happen on my last shawl and I had to cut the pattern short to make it work. Oh well.....

  4. So important to teach about money at an early age, and savings. I definitely will check out this book, looks like a great one.
