On My Needles
Nothing on my needles at the moment, still 🙁
I have traveled to Mexico and where I am right now is hot and humid.
My youngest has a knitting project on her needles, and I have been helping her a tiny bit.
It takes all my resolve not to take over, as I am super keen to do some knitting.
I found a local haberdashery store that sold yarn. Alas the only type they had was acrylic, which did not inspire me.
I will have to live vicariously through my youngest’s work in progress for the time being 🙂

They keep on going because being creative is rewarding.
I have enjoyed the creative space my knitting provides in my life.
Creativity is something that drives all brilliant minds, from inventors and crafters to writers.
My youngest loves reading, and naturally, she came across one of the rare writers who has limitless creativity. J.K Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series.
My youngest has got into reading that series, and she loves it.
Hence the theme for this week’s roundup…
