Yarn Along 2016 {two}

Over the weekend I cast on another Ericka scarf. I knit two last year, and I love them (check them out here and here). I probably should not have cast on a new project, as I am already knitting a shawl for myself and a baby blanket for Mary Rose (you can read the details of Mary Rose's birth here if you like that sort of thing). The truth is that I have not been able to sit long enough with my hands-free to make it through one or two rows at a time of either of those projects. I want to knit, but I need a smaller, simpler project to focus on right now, and I also had this beautiful new yarn from Willow Tree Yarn that I was anxious to knit with, so I finally settled on knitting another Ericka scarf. 

After reading about it from several women that I trust, I started reading Hold On to Your Kids. I thought I was done reading parenting books, but having a baby reminded me that I am not too old to up my parenting game. I am enjoying it so far. The ideas that it presents about attachment and peer orientation are fascinating. My sister-in-law and a couple of friends are reading the book, too. I know that we will have a great discussion about it soon.
