YARNING ALONG WITH A PUNK ROCK MEMOIRI am joining Ginny and her Yarn Along gang again, sharing our yarn work and books. To see more knits and books click on the button below.
This week I continue on the crochet elephant for Oskie. I have finished crocheting all of the pieces, now comes the daunting task of attaching them all together. It's tricky work, getting all of the pieces to attach and lay just where you want them too.
CLOTHES, CLOTHES, CLOTHES, MUSIC, MUSIC, MUSIC, BOYS, BOYS, BOYS - a long title for this book full of short, blunt, sentences. It is a memoir from Viv Albertine, band member of the pioneering all girl 70's punk band The Slits. I heard her interview on Q and thought she sounded interesting. I know nothing about the 70's British Punk Rock scene, am not that much of a rebel myself, but, the book is still very relate able. It's more of a coming of age story, how Viv finds herself in a world that looks down on 'punks' and women...and especially punk women. There is still that theme of sex, drugs, and rock & roll which I find pretty interesting - it's like taking a trip to a foreign world.
AROUND THE HOUSE - We've been reading tamer things with the kids. We seem to be on a Judy Blume kick. I've also started reading Lost in the Barrens to Lolli. At first she didn't think she would like it, but, we are getting into the exciting part when the boys become stranded...and she has changed her mind.
Funny, even though she is nine Lolli still loves being read to.
