Knitting a Scarf, Homemade Playdough, and Reading On

 Hello Friends,

I hope you are doing well. I have cast on a scarf for Liam. I am following pattern Rough Rib Scarf by Cindy Colbert from Ravelry. I am using the yarn Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick and Quick in the colorway Navy. It looks darker in the photo below than it is. It is nice to be back knitting again, I had a break after finishing the stocking for Evan at the end of the year. I am about halfway done now and just switched to the second skein I had. 

I finished reading It Starts With Us by Colleen Hoover. It was good! I liked the first book of the series It Ends With Us better. There was just more drama I guess and so much happened that was emotional and just really intense. The sequel is more calm and a continuation of the story where they left off with a lot of reflecting back to parts I read already in the first book. I have started reading Tom Lake by Ann Patchett and just a few pages in but seems like it will be a good story and I like her writing. I did read her book Commonwealth and enjoyed that one.

I made playdough for Evan on Tuesday this week during his first nap. I used a recipe from Living Well Mom. I let it cool then put it away and played with Evan with it after lunch that day. Since then it has kept very well in a Ziploc bag in a Tupperware container. It lasts a few months according to the Erika on her blog. I will let you know how it goes! I want to make more in other colors. Evan really enjoys squishing it and he does taste it as well but I have peace of mind know it is safe for him if he has some because of the natural ingredients. 

Millie has also been doing well just relaxing and also zooming around. In these photos she is more relaxed. The photo on her cat tree is her favourite spot. Lately she is sitting on the chair I grab to sit with Evan when he are in the kitchen. She always likes to be a part of what we are doing.

Joining along with As Kat Knits for Unraveled Wednesdays. I link up with her knitting and reading link up parties once and awhile and it is nice to see what others are also blogging about and working on :)

Thank you for visiting my blog today! It is a snowy day here in Toronto and it motivated me to be cozy this morning reading and knitting, and then blogging in the afternoon. Hope you are enjoying the week! It is almost the weekend :) I will be back here on Sunday for another post see you then!

 Have a great day!


  1. I remember the play-doh days, so much fun!! Good seeing what you are up to these days.

    1. Thank you Karen! yeah playdough really interests him for so long. It is nice as he gets older to do activities like this to keep his interest and attention. :) thanks for visiting!

  2. I used to make play-doh for my boys too, also at school when I helped there.

    1. That's great Cathy! It is fun to be able to make it and know its safe for them to taste it. I have only made the one batch and want to try other colors too.
