yarn along


Another "yarn along" with Ginny. (By the way- check out her lovely coral-pink yarn that she dyed)

The hat for Helen will soon be finished. She chose purple and yellow for her hat and she wanted penguins. (Bit hard to see the colours since I took this picture in the evening with poor light.)

I am reading "The English German Girl" by Jake Wallis Simons. A heartbreaking story about a girl that escapes Germany in 1939 with a Kindertransport, has to leave her family behind and start a new life in England. I am not finished yet and can hardly stop reading.

Those penguin hats are adorable! Makes me wish I had a little one to knit for. But my (26-year-old) baby lives in Florida, so no need for hats there!

The book looks interesting. We're reading Maus with our students right now, so I've got the Holocaust on my mind!
