my first set of dishcloths are complete.
since i didn't follow a pattern,
i had a lot of fun free styling their designs.
i enjoyed knitting them so much,
that i've started another set in green.
this week, i'm reading
alice miller's the drama of the gifted child.
i have read this work of non-fiction as an undergrad,
a required reading for one of my women's studies courses.
i'm revisiting it again because it was mentioned so often in
meg wolitzer's book the interestings
(the book that will be discussed by my book club this month)
if you haven't read it, it is a classic worth reading.
it deals with abuse and the importance of rediscovering one's authentic self
in order to break the cycle of abuse.
i'm glad to be reading this again...
i'm getting so much more from it now, as a mother,
than i did as a student.
