Yarn Along Squirrel Style.

amigurumi squirrel and skunk showcase the yarn and the book The Big Acorn Race.Happy Wednesday! This is my contribution to yarn along  generously hosted by Ginny from Small Things and where we share what we are reading and making. I am having fun reading The Big Acorn Race and am also almost finished Ragnarok by A.S. Byatt. The yarn is what I have chosen for a CAL (crochet along) hosted by Jennifer at Squirrel Picnic. We are making a cushion cover from her book and you can join too by clicking on the cushion in my sidebar or emailing me. It starts on the 19th of April. I am also working on some Nativity Cows, and some spinning news which I will post soon. I love to hear what others are reading so tell me what is on your reading list?

  1. Thanks Cynthia, I love Christmas and it has always been a big dinner in the middle of a scorching day with friends and family and “I’m dreaming of a White Christmas” booming in the background. LOL! ❤

  2. The idea of an Aussie nativity scene sounds great! Since the blogging world has enlightened me, I am hoping and wondering about the ways that people in the southern hemisphere can make these traditional holidays more relevant to the real seasons and places where they live, instead of those from an inherited idea of what it all looks like….can’t wait to see the cows, and all the others too!


  3. It’s great that the person you know was able to get treatment as a kid. From what I’ve read, that makes a huge difference. Uptight and Off Center isn’t very well written/edited but it does seem to have a lot of good information, so far. There’s another book that just came out – Making Sense by Rachel Schneider. I read it last week and I found it helpful, although mostly for realizing that I probably have this condition. Maybe it wouldn’t be interesting to someone that already knows and has received treatment. Rachel also has a blog called Coming to my Senses. It looks interesting and I plan to go back and visit it when I have more time.


  4. He is a unique and prolific writer! I love that he mentions authors that inspired him that I read first such as Richard Matheson. I recently read Stephen king’s 11/22/63. I literally could not put it down! Sometimes I have to peek between my fingers though because scared when reading him! 😀

  5. That book sounds like something I would love. I think I would like to read it next. I bet your nativity set was great and can you believe it? I have never had one even though it has been on my to do list forever. But this year I am making a few pieces every month. I plan for it be an Aussie Christmas with Roos and Koalas as well as sheep and other farm animals. 😀

  6. This sounds very interesting and an interesting subject. Thank goodness this has been discovered because a young man very close to me who is VERY intelligent has it and if his parents hadn’t picked up on it and got him outside school help, he would have gone under. Of course it wasn’t understood back then. He is doing very well and part of his treatment was where to sit if in a classroom type environment. i have written this down for myself and his parents.


  7. I once had a whole set of hand made Nativity animals 🙂 Probably nothing as nice as what you would produce, but they were well loved for many years. I’m now reading a really lovely novel by Diane Chamberlain ‘Pretending to Dance’. I haven’t read her before and hope to read her other books now.


  8. I love, love, LOVE all the squirrels in your photo! I look forward to seeing the nativity cows too – they sound adorable.

    I am reading Uptight and Off Center, a book about Sensory Processing Disorder. It’s explaining so many of the things I’ve struggled with most of my life. It’s interesting but I’ll be ready for some lighter reading material soon!

  9. Thank you Easy, I had to look up Boris Askin and his books sound really interesting. I am going to add him to my “I want to read this ” list.
