I've slowed down a bit on the Shale blanket (I'm up to 13 inches), only working on about one repeat of four rows a day. I'll start knitting furiously again soon! I've read through the August issue of Country Living UK and the children and I are listening to a lot of Sparkle Stories (have you seen that they have a free podcast?! Awesome!). It's almost time to start reading through the Little House books again!
