After finishing up Emma’s sweater last week, I needed something easy. So, I am making dish cloths. They are so easy, just knit up a square and go! You can make them in a variety of sizes, and they are fast. I have already made three, and plan to make a few more. Since we are a paper free household, it helps a lot to use up the extra cotton yarn I have to knit new dish clothes. I think that it is a great way to use up old bits of yarn, and they hold up extremely well.
As far as reading goes this week, I received a bunch of books in the mail from Barnes and Noble that I am very very excited about. The one I am most interested in at this moment is Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health. I just started it yesterday, and so far so good. I have been really interested in learning more about herbal remedies for some time. I really know nothing about it, and because of that had a hard time finding a book that I thought might give me the information that I needed. It is hard to look for a reference book when you know nothing about the subject!
One of the other books that I got was A Charlotte Mason Companion. I have checked this book out of the library a couple of times, and I never seem to be able to get through the whole thing. There is a lot of great information in it, and it is something that I wanted to have to refer to as we begin our whole homeschooling journey.
I have stopped adding books to my library list for a little while so that I can get through the books that I just got, and also finally get around to reading The Lord of the Rings, which I borrowed from my brother-in-law several months ago. I started reading it to the kids before rest time yesterday, I like to read exceptionally long books to them before rest time, it helps them fall asleep faster 🙂
I’m joining in with Ginny and her yarn along today! Can’t wait to see what everyone else is up to!
