Today I finally cataloged the group recording of “Heimatlos –  Geschichten fuer Kinder und auch fuer solche, welche die Kinder lieb haben” (roughly translated: Homeless – Stories for kids and also for those, who love them) by Johanna Spyri. She probably is best known for “Heidi”, but I love her other books too and will surely do a couple more for LibriVox in the future.

The book consists of two wonderful stories – “Am Silser – und am Gardasee” and  “Wie Wiseli’s Weg gefunden wird” for kids. Both stories are about orphaned children. In the first it’s a little Italian boy, who goes out into the world because of a song his father used to sing and in the second one a little girl has to go and live with a relative after her mother dies… and though both stories are very sad at times they both have a happy ending.

Here is one of the chapters I read:

Now something totally different. I’m down with a rather nasty cold at the moment and so I had quite a bit of time for knitting. So here is another sock to show off:

Acutally the first sock is almost finished by now, I just haven’t had time to take new pics. But there will be a couple soon.

After knitting those black beaded socks I blogged about last time, I wanted to try something a little more complicated. I didn’t find good pattern for working with beads online, so I’m kinda making it up as I go. It’s superfun and I think the socks will look wonderful when they are done. 😀
