Yarn Along: The Artful Parent...


Several months ago, Ginny mentioned a book called The Artful Parent.  I put it on my Amazon wishlist and forgot about it.  Fast forward to my good friend's August birthday.  I decided to order her one and on a whim I popped one into my cart for myself as well.  I didn't have any art ideas for my kindergartener (Sugar Plum is still knitting!) and I thought that this might have a couple of suggestions for me.  Boy was I wrong!  This book is phenomenal!  It should be in every parent's library! Jean Van't Hul not only has wonderful activities that engage all of my children, but she has a book that really helps parents create a lifestyle that surrounds their children in beauty and creativity! 

I was able to knit ten more inches of my Shale Blanket!  I only have two more skeins of yarn left (I started with seven), so I am anticipating this project taking me two more weeks.

This looks like a great book!!! I could do some of those projects with my niece.

Looks like a fun read! Your blanket seems to almost shimmer! Pretty.

Thanks for the book recommendation. I've seen that one and wondered. Adding it to my cart... (Pretty knitting!)

I've had this on my wish list since Ginny mentioned it. Do you think it is appropriate for a 3 1/2yo boy or should I wait a bit?
