I am on my third ball of yarn for the blanket - the new color is called Phoebe from Peace Fleece.
Also just wanted to share how much I am enjoying using Melisa and Erik Nielsen's curriculum with Sarah - A Journey Through Waldorf Homeschooling - affordable, interesting, simple to implement, and perfect for the way she learns.
I am knitting Emmy a spring sweater using a pattern from The Sitting Tree, Mira. I think this is going to become my new favorite sweater pattern - simple yet functional. The yarn was some from my stash. I think it is a 75/25 blend of acrylic/wool from my local yarn shop.
The book is an Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff and Alex Tresniowski. This goes against my usual calming before sleep read, but it is really good and hard to put down! It is amazing what one person can do to change another's life and it is also sad and horrifying to think about the harsh conditions tens of thousands perhaps hundreds of thousands of the children in this country have to endure in their daily lives, usually in the inner cities.
Looking forward to all of the sharing today at Ginny's Yarn Along.
