I'm feeling a little guilty because it seems as if my life lately has consisted (beyond school and housework) of getting together with others for tea and knitting! Four events in the space of five days! Here is my Homeschool Knitting Group that came on Monday. We always have fun and I love seeing what the girls have been knitting.
I've completed the first week in the Jimmy Bean Downton Abbey Knitalong! These are going to be Violet's gloves. I like how they are turning out!
I also got another crochet hat finished and Christina stitched up the flowers. Our friends left today for their journey to China to bring home their daughter!
It was so exciting to win The Quiet Home's pattern giveaway last week! These are the three patterns I chose -- they are so cute, aren't they!!!!
As for reading, I've not completed many books recently but have my hand in a whole lot of them!
Augustus Caesar's World by Genevieve Foster was completed last week with the children. It was a very readable, interesting to children, way to learn about the reign of Augustus Caesar and also to understand some of what was going on throughout the Roman Empire.
My Heart's in the Lowlands: Ten Days in Bonny Scotland by Liz Curtis Higgs was useful in gathering information for our upcoming trip. I am not a big fan of Higgs, but the book did serve to pique my interest in the Lowlands of Scotland. I know much more about Central and Northern Scotland than I do about the south. Perhaps we'll be able to spend a bit of time exploring the beautiful countryside Higgs describes.
Hills Is Lonely by Lillian Beckwith is a book I've just begun today. It was recommended on another blog and our library happened to have it. The book tells the adventures an English girl who goes to live in the Hebrides. I will let you know how it goes!
