Today I'm linking up with Ginny at Small Things for her lovely Yarn Along.
This will make the umpteen billionth time I've unraveled this cowl and begun again. **Sigh** First I hemmed and hawed over what pattern to use, and I started and stopped and piddled about. Then, when I settled on a pattern, I got quite a ways through and figured out I didn't like how large it was going to be. I almost left it, but then....deep breath....I pulled the needles out and decided on some adjustments. So, here we go. Maybe this time will be the charm....or maybe I'll pull it out yet again and turn it into this.
Now onto the book...I've just finished The Quotidian Mysteries: Laundry, Liturgy, and Women's Work. My attitude about housework is in dire need of an adjustment, so I'm reading about it (you know...instead of actually doing it). The book was good but not what I would call a must read. There were some wonderful elements, but overall I thought it was scattered and a bit unfinished which I guess is fitting considering the subject at hand. Any good books suggestions for a rather impractical keeper of the home?
