Anyway...you never know what you're going to learn about on public radio. It's funny - I'm baking bread and listening to public radio, I've given up on wearing makeup or doing much of anything with my hair, and I'm on a serious natural food and anti-consumerist kick. I'm turning into my mother. Or rather, my mother twenty years ago. Mom was the ultimate hippy when I was growing up, when I wanted nothing more than to be left alone to Aqua Net my hair, read Seventeen magazine, and save my pennies for a new pair of Guess jeans. When I went to college, Mom went to graduate school and now she's the one buying convenience foods and dressing for success. I find it a bit fascinating how we've switched places.
I'm almost done with my first pair of socks (remember me complaining about the two pairs of socks and sweater I have to finish by the end of the year?) and waiting for the yarn for the second. The sweater is yet-to-be-started (but I'm not worried, since I should be able to get 'er done in about two weeks). In the meantime, I'm trying to figure out how I can knit some toys for the kids for Christmas. For Owen, I'd like to make some Dinosaurs. For Sydney, I've been meaning forever to make a doll or two out of the fabulous book Dream Toys. In all of my spare time.
(PS - the reason I don't do affiliate links to Amazon and instead link books to Powell's is that Powell's is our local independent bookstore and I'd much rather direct people to them than to Amazon!)
