Some of you may remember that on the last yarn along I joined in on, I shared a picture that looked very much like a brown knit baby hat.
I need to knit it up one more time to make it exactly what I want. If I can get it right, I will share. I think I might also reverse the colours so that the nut is lighter and the cap is darker. Stay tuned.
Reading: Last time I joined in, I believe I was just starting to read the "Conspiracy 365" series that my son wanted me to catch up on. Well, I am done now. All 12. Good thing that being kids books, they only take about an hour to an hour and a half to read one. I think I would recommend them for teens - in fact my almost 10 year old is starting them. I did struggle with them as mistakes jumped out at me in almost all of the books. Things like -he was walking as casualty as possible in stead of as casually as possible. That kind of thing bothers me. A lot! And I found a few. S either didn't notice or didn't care because he never mentioned any of them...but it is one of my biggest pet peeves in printed works. The series does get a bit old (granted I read them pretty much back to back - which I am guessing was not the intention) with the never ending "narrow escapes" but the boys are loving them...and I think it's good for them to see that not everybody has it so easy. There is a wide variety of family dynamics. The ending is a predictable (for an adult anyways), but like I said, the boys are both really enjoying them, and that is what matters, isn't it?
Another children's book I read in that time (I had to wait for S to finish one of them before he would let me pass him) was The False Prince by Jennifer A. Nielsen. This one I would definitely recommend. It is sitting on N's bookshelf waiting for him.
In the kitchen:
I shared the recipe for these cookies over here.
I'll be joining in again with yarn along at small things on Wednesday.
