A magic box with a never-ending supply of yarn? A little girl who knits sweaters for every living thing in her town? An evil archduke who wants the box for his own?
Yes, please! Every knitter should have this book on their shelf.
We are also loving Kate DiCamillo's The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane...I sat to read a bit of this while eating my lunch yesterday and read the whole book. A wonderful, wonderful read...one of those full-circle type stories with themes of attachment, abandonment, loss, grief, and of course, love.
Jude's been into Greek Mythology so we've been reading up on King Midas and the Olympian Twelve. We may need to order a book that he can read himself!
I've been playing Bingo at our library. We have a Bingo card with different types of books on each square (e.g. Read a book everyone has read but you, read a classic, read a book you heard about on the radio). I've read 14 books so far, and have 10 more to go. Right now I'm reading a book I should have read in high school: The Catcher in the Rye!
And knitting? Well, I am afraid I don't have much time for that these days. I'm poking away at my sock (for those who asked last time, it's Regia World Circus, colour 3754!), and am preparing to cast on for this Christmas project (because there's no sense in waiting till December, right?) This will take me awhile! I just love it and enjoy picturing it on top of our piano next winter.
