I am joining Ginny and others for this week's sharing of knitting and reading.
On the needles this week are a hooded cardigan for my eldest. I started this some time ago and needed to sew all the pieces together before carrying on. It is not my favourite part of a knitting project as I find I need time and space and I don't have much of either. 'Tis done, so I have picked up the stiches and am working on the hood. The yarn is Rowan purelife cotton.
I have managed to find some time to read a bit this week which has been lovely. I am reading Unschooling Handbook by Mary Griffith lent to me by this lovely mama. It is an interesting read but I have yet to find anything in the book that I feel I will adopt in our house. I think it would be more useful for parents who are considering home education or are looking for a different approach to their current one, but I have yet to finish so maybe I will find inspiration further through the book. I only came across the concept of unschooling very recently it seems to me to be a strange label for education and not one that I intend to adopt, nevertheless it is interesting to read about it.
