Despite my setback I am loving knitting this shawl. Its so much fun watching the leaves appear and I keep hearing myself say "just one more row" in my head . . . its quite addictive.
I came across a great kids book this week. I got it for my daughter, but I ended up reading it in the car while waiting to pick my son up from Kinder. Its called 'The Giggler Treatment' by Roddy Doyle. Hes an Irish author, you might know from his book 'The Commitments' which was made into a film in the 90s (if you are old enough!). He is very Irish and very Dublin in his writing and he writes about the exact part of Dublin that I'm from. How funny to find it in an op-shop in Melbourne! Anyway - this book is hilarious and just perfect for my 7 year old right now. Its got fairly big writing and a kooky sense of humour. She loves Roald Dahl and its along the same lines.
