I have been out of action on the blog for a while, but this week have decided to join in the Wednesday 'Yarn Along' with Ginny from Small Things
As very much a beginner knitter, I was very pleased to finally finish a slightly more challenging project of these toddler longies. I enjoyed making them so much......but, the toddler in question does not like them at all and cries when I put them on!! To be fair to him, they are on the tight side and he doesn't like the wool pressed against his bare legs. I knitted the size for a two year old, and he is a smallish 21 month old so I'm not sure what's gone wrong. Anyway, I'll now pack them away in the hope that another little person may one day come along into my life and wear them.
I have been reading Easter in Autumn by Collette Leenman to find ways to work this traditional Spring festival into our own season of Autumn. It is a lovely book and very helpful.
Nourishing Traditions has been by my side for the last two weeks - I am stunned by this book! It has arrived into my hands at just the right time as I have some diet related health issues that I am dealing with. This book makes so much sense to me - even as a vegetarian. I am shocked that it has convinced me of the rightness to including meat in the diet. But after looking into the availability of humanely raised and slaughtered meat I have to say that I am going to try all the other tips first. Because in Australia there basically is no humanely raised and slaughtered meat, so unless I grow my own or become a hunter I just can't support that industry. My plan it to try the fermented foods and start to utilise the wonderful raw milk we are now getting weekly. I am also going to eat more good quality eggs, and then see how my health is after a few months on this diet. I had never considered myself to eat much refined foods, but this book has me convinced to abandon them as much as I possibly can.
