A new sweater for Willow from the leftovers I had hanging around. I am living in fear that I am going to run out of the green but I think I might just squeak by. I have had to take it apart 2 or 3 times and, really, I probably should again! I definitely screwed something up on the last leaf row but I think I might just grin and bear it. She is moving so fast now hopefully no one will notice!
I love these wooden needles, too. So nice to work with. I scrapped the curly plastic metal ones. I couldn't
handle it anymore.
We made the ocean bottle that Ginny mentioned one of her last posts. It was so fun and easy! Eliot had to make a 'bottle of blood', too. The zombies are taking over apparently.
The practicing on the chanter is going well, too. I'm trying to sneak in practice whenever I can. It is starting to sound a little better! I'm working on the first lines of Amazing Grace. Slow progress.
As for reading - it has mostly been seed packets. I am in the throws of the garden and seed starting plan. I hope to make some progress this week. Hopefully I can get to Home Depot with the two kids in tow and someone will take pity and help me cut pvc the pipe I need. I try not to take advantage of the mom card but ya' know sometimes it comes in handy.
And the baby is really taking off with her exploring. She is reaching over head to grab stuff and is experimenting with letting go now and then. She is becoming much more expressive and meaningful with her language, too. I can't wait to hear her talk!
Yarning along over here...
