It's Yarn Along time, thanks to Ginny for hosting!
I am knitting the Last Christmas Stocking of the Year!
I can't tell you how excited I am about that.
There has been little in the way of trips to the zoo, or the woods, or the museums, or anywhere much at all, for about a month an a half while I furiously knitted the other 11 stockings on my order list this year.
If I finish this one quickly, I might even be able to get in some serious work on a sweater for the Younger.
He wants one with a dragon on it, and I must obey an order for knitwear from the kids, who knows how long they'll be interested.
As for reading, I finished Outlander last week, and now we're into the Christmas books.
Nothing says Christmastime to me like pulling out an old favorite from the basket of picture books.
The latest read was Santa Calls by William Joyce.
I love reading picture books with really beautiful art, and interesting stories filled with whimsy and imagination.
William Joyce always fits the bill.
I highly recommend Dinosaur Bob, and The Leaf Men and the Brave Good Bugs too, if you're new to his work.
