Knitting and Reading again for the Yarn Along
I am knitting Emmy a little wool vest using this free pattern and Peace Fleece lavender yarn in DK weight on size 4 needles.
I took my tattered and probably 10 year old copy of The Charlotte Mason Companion. So much goodness in her methods and Karen writes in such a clear way and makes the reading interesting and gives so much food for thought.
We have an eclectic style of homeschooling but in the days and years to come, will be adding in even more of the Charlotte Mason style of learning as it just makes sense.
An important part of the philosophy (way of living/learning) is to be sure that your children each day have -
~ Something or someone to love
~ Something to do
~ Something to think about
Charlotte's Mason's writngs go on in much more detail what each of these three can mean and in The Charolotte Mason Companion, Karen Andreola does a wonderful job giving examples of each.
Looking forward to learning what you are knitting/crocheting and reading!
