Small Things for this week's yarn along. This week I am finishing up both Stolen Harvest by Vandana Shiva and Wake Up and Smell the Planet. They are both quick reads. Reviews on both of those to come soon! I also just started Freedom, by Jonathan Franzen, which is the book that my new mama book club is reading! I have always wanted to be in a book club, and now it finally happened, although I think it may be more of an excuse for some mamas to get together for a few hours without kiddos than actually about what we read. But hey, I am OK with that!
On the needles, I am working on a knitted peacock as a surprise for Finn. We go to an awesome bluegrass music festival every summer called String Summit, and the place where it is held, Horning's Hideout, has peacocks. A peacock theme is intertwined throughout the festival, so I figured that Finn should have a peacock of his own. Have you ever heard a peacock call? It is pretty creepy....especially when you are in a tent in the woods in the middle of the night! I am also working on Debbie Bliss' baby shorts pattern found in Essential Baby. They are on tiny needles and are taking awhile- I feel like they may never get done!
