Another week, another post with the same book and same project. So it goes. At least its a good book and a good project 🙂 Check out Ginny at small things for more inspiration.
I, of course, am loving this BSJ. After solving the hole in the sleeve issue it has been pretty smooth knitting. And to be honest I am incredibly proud of myself for being able to take out the problem rows and catch all the stitches so I didn’t have to rip the whole thing out and start over.
The 10 Habits of Happy Mothers is enjoyable. I think at least some of it falls into the “well, duh” category but sometimes we just need a little reminder. She uses lots of illustrations of moms who have changed their thinking or behavior and how that has improved their lives and their family life. I also like that she gives concrete steps at the end of each chapter to help readers make the changes they need to be happier mamas.
Next up, I have a couple books waiting for me at the library. And I want to see if I can find a copy of Boys Should Be Boys while we’re there. Anyone have an opinion on buying The Help ? I am #244 in line for it from the library! I’m not sure I want to spend the money but I would also like to read it sometime in this lifetime. Knitting-wise I’ll probably start the second half of my mom’s retirement gift. Either that or the start of the boys’ Christmas gift. Or maybe a sweater-like something for me with some pretty lavender yarn I was given. Oh, the endless possibilities 🙂
