Super Soakers #YarnAlong

Last week, I decided to knit another soaker for Lil' J. I completed the curly purly soaker, back in June, on the ride home from Canada, but I have not been able to find it since arriving home. I have no clue where it is. I decided to try a new soaker pattern-super soakers. Super soakers is a free pattern on Ravelry. Size is 6-9 months. Since Justin is in 18 month size clothes, I decided to hold yarn doubled and use up scraps!

Last night, before Charis went to bed, I read Colors Everywhere: Counting and My America. She borrowed both of these books from the library.

Colors Everywhere: Counting. A book about different colors and counting. There are 10 colors featured throughout the book, and each page features objects from a single color. It involves children by asking, "What else do you see?" After that question is asked, it would ask another question more specific to the page, for example (on the green page) it asks "Which ones are vegetables?" The last question it asks is, "Can you find (insert number) objects?" I liked the fact that for the color white, the author included a sheep (see picture below).

My America. Illustrations bu Ashley Bryan and Jan Spivey Gilchrist. Poem by Jan Spivey Gilchrist. Overall, my response to this book is "meh". I was not too impressed with it. The illustrations help show the diversity that is in America, but the poem is not my favorite. All it does is ask questions, "Have you seen my...? Seen my...? Seen my...?" Nothing to impressive.

What are you reading or knitting?
