Wife, Mummy, Nurse: Almost No Knitting Progress {Yarn Along}

Almost No Knitting Progress {Yarn Along}

Before we left for prayer meeting this afternoon.
Yes, she's moist from sweat, not a bath.
I originally was not going to write a Yarn Along post this week. I'm not knitting anything new. I have not finished any previous projects or made significant strides in them either. It's been warm hot this week, and our AC has not been turned on yet, so I don't feel like knitting too much. Today it was about 90 degrees. Charis and I walked to the library today where I checked out Organized Simplicity and Incredible Edibles.

When we were at the library, the 3-5 year old story time was about to start. One of the librarians asked if we were going in. I said, "My daughter was only 2." She said, "That's fine. She's welcome."  I asked Charis if she wanted to go in, and she said no. I asked if she wanted me to read to her, and she replied, "Yes." So, I read to her instead. She's been to story time before, but doesn't interact like the other children do. She just stands from afar, sucking her thumb. Though, we've only been twice, so if I made a habit of going things might be different. I was able to get far more interaction with one on one reading.


What are you reading or knitting?
Join me over at Ginny's Yarn Along.

    1. All of our windows are on and the balcony curtain is closed during the hottest part of the day. I noticed your Steelers mug in your Yarn Along post.

  2. Just finished listening to Men are From Mars, Women are From Venus. Just finished knitting my Top Down Cardi-Wrap from Knitting Simple: http://ravel.me/stringmaker/22gw3 Very pleased with the knitting. The book had some interesting food for thought but some of it was silly.

    1. That's lovely. I like the brown. Is this the pattern you were telling me about a few weeks ago?

    2. Thanks! Probably... I started it at the end of Feb. It is quite satisfying to know that I spun that yarn myself and it turned into a nice wearable sweater. It has been a fear that it would not turn out well.

  3. My daughter was very shy at age 2, too. But she is the most outgoing 4 year old now!

    Unfortunately I'm not reading anything because I'm out of books, and not knitting anything because I can't knit. :(
