Knitting: Thrifty, by Kelly Brooker, in Drops Nepal.
This red version is for the big boy and I’m now just about to finish the front shaping. After that, only the applied icord edging is left to do.
The little boy’s orange version is already finished (Ravelry notes here).
They chose the yarn for their vests some time before Christmas, but hopefully they still get some wear this winter. I am adding some extra length to both vests so, fingers crossed, they will still fit for the next cold season.
Reading: The Outcast by Sadie Jones, as per recommendation from my Dad. A dramatic start and so far a good read!
Also, the big boy and I read a chapter of The Seven-year-old Wonder Book every night. I wholeheartedly recommend this book; it’s a lovely combination of stories of a little girl and her life throughout her 6th year. She hears a fairy tale like story every day, and at the end of her day she leaves out her “Wonder Book” for the rhyme-elves to leave a picture and a poem over night. It is all very magical, and we both love this book. Sadly, we only have one or two chapters to go!
