Small Things again this week. I have the yarn to knit a sweater for Julia, but as Hannah,Dan,Sophia and Isaac are coming to stay this weekend I thought I'd use up some yarn from my stash and knit Get Ziggy for Isaac. I love the envelope neck and cables. I'll start Julia's once I've finished!
I am reading 'Farewell to the East End' by Jennifer Worth, it is the third in a set of books about the author's life in the East End of London in the 1950s when she worked there as a district midwife and nurse. It is a fascinating insight into life after WW2 and into the history of midwifery in Great Britain.The first book has been turned into a BBC TV series entitled 'Call The Midwife', if it makes to your screens in the USA I'm sure you will enjoy it, and if not the books are well worth reading.
