Joining in with Ginny for a look at what I'm Knitting and what I'm reading.
The cardigan is from a Sirdar pattern(1707) using a stitch that I haven't used before, K1B Knit into the stitch below. A simple stitch that gives a lovely texture I think. I found the yarn in my stash and find that it's knitting up nicely. And who is it for? Come back Friday and all will be revealed!
The book is Family Friendly Farming by Joel Salatin. I love what he has to say on many things. At one point he talks about children's memories being about special events, birthdays , holidays, etc. But his most precious memories are about ordinary everyday life on the farm, and how rich they are. I like this idea that we do not need to fill our children's lives with outside experiences for them to have fulfilling , joyful lives! I was expecting a book on farming but it is so much more.
