Joining with Ginny for Yarn Along.
With granddaughter's first birthday coming up soon, I thought it was time for a baby knit.
So I have cast on Little Vintage Sunday Coat to make for her.
It is a gorgeous pattern, and very simple, from King Cole Baby Book No 5. I have Book 5, 6 and 7 and My daughter was having a hard time choosing what she would like made! I think I will be knitting quite a few patterns from these books in the near future.
At the moment, I have two books on the go. One easy fiction, War Babies by Annie Murray, and a non-fiction, Free To Learn by Peter Gray.
I always enjoy reading about World War II, so this should be a quick and fun read.
Free To Learn is about how we have let unstructured play all but disappear in our childrens' lives and how this is affecting their ability to learn from the world around them and their own experiences. I seem to keep coming back to these books that just reinforce how I feel about schooling and the current education system. Like rubbing salt in an open wound; but I can't seem to stop myself.
