Knitting and Reading

I am hoping I will be able to link up with Ginny's yarn along today.
Often with dial-up I am unable to do the special link thing.

I have been knitting lots lately.
Using Peace Fleece yarn I have been knitting Plain Vests for my fiber shop.
I finally finished these little booties - it is the Stay-On Booties pattern from the book, Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick and Kristin Nicholas.
Finally, I am knitting a garter stitch blanket using all of the miscellaneous balls of dk weight yarn I have.

I am reading a book that is a quick read - fast and enjoyable, Orphan Train. 
Unschooling, a Lifestyle of Learning by Sara McGrath is also a great read if you want to understand more about unschooling.  I found it particularly helpfpul with supportive ideas to appease the state and am planning to order her unschoolers journal  to help me keep track of all of the daily learning that happens naturally.


  1. Those booties are so buttery soft, adorable. And I love the colours in your garter stitch blanket! Very timeless.

  2. What pretty baby knits. Knitting for wee ones is always so much fun.
    I read the Orphan Train and enjoyed it too.

  3. it seems as if a state like vermont would be more lenient when it comes to homeschooling...guess not. i don't really know too much about vermont though.

    1. I know you would think so wouldn't you Megan. But actually, Vermont is considered one of the five red states in the US.

  4. Interesting reading and beautiful knitting Tonya! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Very nice knits; I especially like the striping going on in your basket... What are you creating?
