Yarn Along: 17th August

I was a little discouraged last week if you read my post about not being able to get much crafting time into my daily life. I am hoping with Trahaearn's medication for reflux and my avoiding the dairy I will get more time with a more happy baby and therefore a little more wiggle room in our family life and some craft time for mummy.

I did finally remember I had an easy pattern I had been savng for a long time.
Tonya from  Plain and Joyful Living has a sweet little gnome pattern for free that I have started. Since taking this picture last night I have also knitted an arm. It really easy easy knitting and I love the wool I am using. I am not sure what it is as the little children have taken the wrapper.

AS part of our book order we had earlier i the month I had recieved Heaven on Earth: A Handbook for Parents of Young Children, 
so now I am slowly working my way throught this one.Once again it jsut emphasises the need for rhythm in the home and a childhood filled with wonder and joy, which I totally agree with.

This week I   am joining  Ginny and the other ladies with a much more joyful heart for Yarn Along.
I hope to see you there.

Blessings to you and your homes,

Your little gnome is going to be adorable! I want to knit one of those this year, too -- perhaps one for my daughter and one for my nephew.

Do you think Heaven on Earth would be a useful read for someone with older kids, or is it really aimed at families with very small children?

How wonderful that you have started this cute pattern. I have seeing it at her website and find it delightful!

Have a blessed day Gae,

Thank you for your comments.
I am enjoyin gthis book when I get to it.
Kathy I think it is designed for younger children but the idea of creativity and rhythmn in the day can be an encouragment for starting with older children. We have older and younger children. I realy am not a long way into the book yet to tell more than that.
I have finished the knitting of my gnome and just need to sew him up. I will be knitting another soon too.
