This year has been so crazy, that I’ve missed blogging some projects I have finished. I’m working on those “missing” posts. They will come along in what appears a random order (I’m not going to post-date the actual blog post), and a few may be missing some of the information I usually include. Thankfully, I keep my Ravelry pages updated regularly, so much of the information I need is there.
That’s what’s going on blog-wise. Crafting-wise, I’ve got my attention focused on my Garland socks. I’ve completed the first and intend to finish the second soon, so I can cast on something I really want to knit, which is…
… an Asagi short-sleeve linen top (pattern by Bristol Ivy). Of course, it likely won’t be worn until at least spring time, and Sprout does need a new winter hat for this winter, so I may be self-disciplined and knit the hat first. Happily, preschooler heads are fairly small, yet. 🙂
Motherhood-wise, I’m changing up Sprout’s schooling a bit. I’ve ordered “official” curriculum (maybe I’ll explain why in another post), worked on some more quiet bags, looked into good preschool-age read-aloud novels, and I’m making plans for a more structured start to the school day (like including prayer, Bible verse memory work, and keeping some sort of records). And trying to plan that stuff around JB’s needs and schedule; considering what we can do with him at the table coloring in a book versus what would be better done while he is occupied or asleep. Also, I’m keeping in mind that much of this may (will?) change when this new baby begins having more of an impact on the family outside the womb, next spring…
Life-wise, I’m still growing a baby. 😀 I’m in that not-uncomfortable-but-definitely-feeling-pregnant stage. I know there’s a little person in there, though I’m not feeling him/her much yet. I am reminded whenever I try to stay up late or turn over in bed too quickly… and when I use the bathroom before driving the 20 minutes to town, but need to use it again as soon as I arrive.
Oh, and family-wise, we are enjoying our new house. There is a lot to see and do. Here is the view from our porch.
Peaceful. Beautiful. Windy. Wonderful. I love it. 🙂
