Back to school time for us and we are shifting from trying to maintain momentum and knowledge during the summer to balancing schoolwork with hobbies and fun at home. This extends especially to bedtime stories. We love reading together as a family, so when I find books related to my passions and hobbies it is especially fun to share them with my sons. Who knows, they may become knitters themselves one day, but at the very least they can catch a glimpse into why I find knitting so fun and enriching – and how truly special those handknits we give them are.
