With a virus going around, I am taking the opportunity to rest lots which means knitting lots. I finished the Matinee Jacket from my favorite knitting book (which I have probably mentioned here far too many times), Vintage Knits for Modern Babies. I used the heavy worsted weight Andes wool from Knit Picks and size 10 circular needles. I cast on for the smallest size that the pattern gave (3 - 6 month) and it came up about a size 3/4. It is too big for Emmy right now.
I am reading an older book, Kinds of Love by May Sarton, that I found in our little library. Our library is kind of special because they have held on to a pretty good size collection of older books. It is a novel set in a fictional small New Hampshire town and is about the people that make up that town and how one finds a sense of being.
This year I have made a pledge to keep my new book buying to a minimum. I am thinking of coming up with a book budget for our family. Of course we always keep our eyes open at book sales, thrift shops and yard sales, but sometimes it is hard to be patient.
So, with wanting to keep our spending much less this year than last, I am going through all of the books we now own and weeding out what I don't think is worth keeping. Through this process, I am finding lots of books that I would love to read again. For the Family's Sake is one example.
Joining in today with Ginny.
Happy New Year everyone!
