My hands have been very busy this week, mostly engaged in DIY with a little knitting on the side. I have been sanding and painting architraves, door ones. To look at my knitting you would think that there has been no progress on last week and physically there hasn't really. I am good with that. I finished the twisted rib and started on several rows of stocking stitch before deciding it looked odd, the twisted rib needed a garter stitch edge to complete it before starting on the stocking stitch. So I ripped out the six or seven rows I had knitted and added in a garter rib. I am liking this process, it is slow and steady but I feels good a stepping stone to designing my own patterns.....one day.......maybe!
I have been reading the wonderful Kith this week. When you choose to parent differently from others it is sometimes hard to stay on that path, the draw to not have to 'justify' your decision making because it is different can be strong. When you read a book like this, that confirms your decisions are good ones, it makes me happy to be forging the path that we do.
