Good reads and great knits

Knitting and reading today with Ginny’s Knit Along

After so many pairs of fingerless gloves (instant gratification!), I’ve moved onto a little bit more time consuming project, the Manda Ruth cardigan. Such a sweet pattern – ribbed trim, seed stitch, and a hood. I’m hoping it will fit my sweet Everett for the remaining months of his first year. Cozy and cute.

A moment of sibling love in handknits (one on loan, the other: February Girl Sweater)

And on the bedside table these days are a few great books.

WordPress for Dummies – nothing more to say about that!

The Complete Homeopathy Book by Miranda Castro – this was required reading for an online homeopathy class that I’m taking. I’m learning so much, and am thrilled to have more tools to bring myself and my family into a state of health.
A Householders Guide to the Universe by Harriet Fasenfest – this is a gem of a book that traces the year of a “householder” from sowing to growing to stowing. It is filled with helpful hints and humorous anecdotes and great subheadings like, “You’re Only as Hot as Your Kitchen.”  Love it.

What are you reading and knitting?

  1. Hello dear Teri! I am reading Felting for Baby, The Man Who Quit Money, Brava Valentine and Felt Furnishing. I am knitting tiny tea leaves for Saschy girl and also honey cowl for a friend. Also trying to figure out how to put a brim on a hat! Soooo…will you tell me what homeopathy online class you are taking? I’d love to take one! Blessings friend. Kris

  2. Teri, I love the crafts and you crafty Mamma! My grandmother knit and crocheted many things, but I remember the wool sweater with zippered front that was a hand-me-down from my two brothers. There were two different sizes, so I wore one and then the other for years. I will check with Mom to see if she has patterns that you might use or needles and such. Ed

  3. Thanks for the reading suggestions! I am currently reading The Neighborhood Forager and Free Range Chicken Gardens. I recommend them – especially to those of us still stuck in the suburbs.
