Still working on the ripple knit blanket and my granny squares which I hope will become a blanket as well.
I am looking, though, for a new pattern to try, something that isn't a long term commitment like the blankets.
I am reading a great book - Small Feet, Big Land by Erin McKittrick, recommended by Renee.
Erin and her husband are quite remarkable as they go on excursions into the wilds of Alaska with baby and toddler in tow. They call home a somewhat remote homestead in Alaska where they work to fish, gather and grow much of their own food and live lightly.
Here is an excerpt -
"My lack of a shower and a toilet seemed to me to be a calculated and perfectly sensible trade-off between convenience and freedom. Freedom to stay home with a kid or to be off adventuring with him for months at a time. Freedom to work a lot or not work much at all. Freedom to work for free or work on my own schedule on the work I feel is important at the moment.
We live on the doorstep of wilderness, with a million-dollar view, space for a garden, a close-knit community, a cheap and debt-free lifestyle, and a schedule nearly entirely of our own making. Could I have all that and all the conveniences of urban life? Maybe, with enough money. But what would I give up to earn it?"
Joining in with Ginny.
