I finally finished Callie's beret. She loves it! Kate has asked for one too, but I would like some hand warmers for myself, so she will have to wait. Except for my first hat, I haven't made anything for myself, so I told her she had to wait her turn since she had two hats and two sweaters. I'm just thrilled that they like the things I make and want more. I'm also thrilled to have something to work on while at ballet and 4H meetings. Those times and in the car are the main times that I knit and it's nice to have something to do. I'm not too good at reading at those times. I can't seem to focus when there are a lot of other things going on.
I am still reading As Always, Julia: The Letters of Julia Child and Avis Devoto.
Callie and I have been reading Gentle Ben by Walt Morey. I had never heard of this book, but it was recommended by Ambleside so I thought we would try it. This would be a classic example of not judging a book by it's cover. I really wasn't sure if this would be a good fit for Callie, but we both love it. It is very well written and I have really enjoyed it. It would be a great book for learning about Alaska. It is definitely worth getting and reading for boys or girls.
