The top-down sweater, mentioned here (I thought I had a picture – oops!) is ripped out and started again as a bottom-up raglan in the round. Just in time for a three hour training this morning! Kathmandu Aran, a lovely soft green with flecks of brown, blue, yellow. The Kid whirled the skein winder while I ripped. I imagine I’ll have a picture soon, but I make no promises!
This is the Kid’s take on our little car trouble Wednesday.
All that smoke was the car throwing up. And the taller (shop/garage) is the car doctor! And the grua (towtruck) is a car ambulance and took our car to the car doctor! I was brave.
Recently (and not so) read:
Cornelia Funke, Inkheart is a great kid’s adventure/fantasy story, and reading is an integral part of it. It’s a nice big book, the first of a series. I haven’t read the second yet, because, well, I’m not sure, no reason really. It’s a nice one to try when your Harry Potter withdrawal kicks in.
Jack Weatherford, Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World is pretty much what it sounds like. History/biography. Fascinating story. I’m working through it slowly, probably because it’s nonfiction.
Kim Edwards, “Spring, Mountain, Sea” from The Secrets of a Fire King – stories. Beautiful short story, so I bought the book.
