This week I have actually made progress on my Baby Love. A row now, a row later... they begin to add up! It's been fun seeing this pattern take shape. When I finally finished the first row of blocks and saw hearts... It really was baby love! The pattern is now available at Meg's Little Bit of Knittery Etsy shop.
I'm using Fishermen's wool by Lion Brand Yarn. I'd like to say that I chose this after an exhaustive search considering look and feel. But truth is, I was eager to cast on and this was the only wool I had enough of in my stash. Although this was a rather humble beginning... I'm loving it! I love the deep brown color and it is knitting up soft with a wonderful drape. I think I'm going to knit one red heart! Fun.
With school just around the corner I'm doing what every other home school mama is doing. Putting together curriculum for this fall. One of our favorite subjects is nature study. We each have a nature notebook where sketches, important identification information, poems and tidbits are recorded. Every year we purpose to be more diligent in our entries but we really are better fair weather naturalists. But this year...
I received this beautiful rendition of Edith Holden's 'for real' nature journal as a gift from a friend. It's an absolute beauty and definitely inspires one to perfection. We may not achieve Edith's standard but we enjoy the push none the less.
