As the summer winds down, so does the time available to try new things. Archer is going to language camp for the next two weeks here on my campus -- Spanish next week, and French the week after that. Both the kids now have hand-me-down two-wheelers with training wheels, thanks to Freecycle, and they are working hard to master them.
I'll be trying something next in three weeks -- Fair Isle knitting, also known as stranded colorwork. This is the kind of knitting that produces beautiful, colorful small-scale designs like those associated with Norwegian sweaters. I'm starting out small, with these super-popular fingerless mittens.
What are you doing this summer that you've never done before?
