The medium-sized Squishie from Itty Bitty Toys is complete and Silas looks as if he would like to devour it.
Which would be okay by me; whatever makes the little nipper happy, right? I'm going to take a break from these for awhile, but I have grand plans to knit a bunch of them in different sizes and string them up as a knitted "planet mobile." Steve thinks that Pluto should still be included in such a project, but I think that he's livin' in the past.
As for reading, I picked up quite a few things at the library last week and have read a couple pages in most of them. I've made the most progress in Thriving Beyond Sustainability, which explores different ways that our society might cope with the changing ecological world in which we live. It alternates between depressing me and inspiring me. Inspires because it shows how resourceful people can be, and depresses because the most peaceful and resourceful cultures are also the ones that get trampled over. I'm also diving into The Family Dinner, which I picked up because another Yarn Alonger was reading it, and it is very good. I'm missing my reading time! I think I might just start offering to nurse Silas when I feel like reading. Maybe I can talk him into going along with it...
