~ I just have to add the buttons to the vest
~ Started on a pair of woolen booties, adapting a pattern from Vintage Knits for Modern Babies, using some soft beige wool yarn my son, Isaac, bought me for Christmas
~ Reading parts of a book that I refer to every couple of months, A Handmade Life, In Search of Simplicity by Wm. S. Coperthwaite
Here is one excerpt ~
"When we produce an article of clothing for others with concern for their welfare, we knit this concern into the garment. Those who recognize that extra quality will feel a greater sense of care and affection - as well as warmth - when they wear the gift. For those who know this, the hand-knit mittens are more beautiful. Our sense of the beautiful is greatly influenced by knowledge."
