Yarn Along: Christmas is Coming!

When we went away this past weekend, I brought along this gorgeous skein of Madeline Tosh yarn to make a Honey Cowl with.  I wish that I knew the name of the yarn, but I accidentally tossed the label when I was tidying up my knitting basket.  It is a gorgeous color and I knew the moment that I bought it who I was going to give the finished product to!

I am still working on my Edith Shawl, but I snapped one of my knitting needles in half when packing it into the car!  Whoops!  I'll be picking up a new pair (and maybe this time I'll go with needles in the round) on Thursday.

We're reading a lot this week.  Little Man received several Magic Tree House books for his birthday and we finished the last of those tonight.  We also have one more book left in Tumtum and Nutmeg:  Rose Cottage Tales to read aloud and we are listening to the Ramona books in the car when we run errands.  I picked up A Child's Christmas in Wales at the library today after seeing the gorgeous pictures on Ginny's blog and I am in the midst of Christmas at Thrush Green.

Ugh! That sucks about the broken needle.

I used to love the Ramona Quimby books when I was a kids. I'm glad your children do, too.

my Tyler LOVES Magic Tree House (all my kids have) ... we also recently started enjoying the Research Guides along with them. Jack and Annie are our buds now.

i considered the Ramona audios for Christmas ... and the Henry ones (Neil Patrick Harris) ... but over the month of November my boys discovered and LOVED the Your Story Hour CDs (which surprised me) so we went with those, and a few of their beloved Jim Weiss as gifts.

... since you guys read TumTum and Nutmeg aloud, I was wondering if you'd read Nest for Celeste?

enjoy your Christmas weekend
Love,
kathi
