I have loved to read since I was little. I would borrow many books from the library and still borrow to this day, but I also purchase books (mostly for my kids) and freebies on Kindle. I read as much as I can daily. Sometimes I read several books at one time. I don't have a preference of paper book over an ebook, I just love to read. Keeping lists of what I have read is a good way for me to remember.
When my girls were little we would go to a nearby Lutheran Church and a wonderful lady there would bring in her sock monkeys when she would do the children's sermon. My girls eventually became enamored with sock monkeys. I bought this book when it was reduced/free priced and put it aside to make when I had some free time (getting less every day it seems). I think this pattern is super simple to make and will still make for my girls.
