Ginny over at Small Things hosts a wonderful link up called the Yarn Along. Each week, we share a photo of what we are knitting and what we are reading. How can you ever go wrong with books and knitting? Thank you, Ginny, for hosting and for giving us the chance to see some great projects and books!
Life has been even busier than usual in the last week or so and sadly, I haven't had much time for either pastime. I can't entirely do without, though, so some things have gotten done. In terms of reading, I finished reading The Ragamuffin Gospel by Brennan Manning and overall, I enjoyed it. It wasn't a "faith changing" book for me the way that other report that is has been but there were parts that really spoke to me. I'd like to go back and read it again in a few years since it is the kind of book that does seem to have something new to say with repeated readings. I have also been slowly moving through The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. I like it but not love it. I really enjoyed The House at Riverden by Morton and this book made the list from Anne Bogel at Modern Mrs. Darcy so I intend to keep going - she has never steered me wrong yet! Finally, I'm reading Craving Connection: 30 Challenges for Real-Life Engagement from the (in)courage community over at Dayspring. They have been posting a weekend challenge that links to the book on their blog and I liked what I had read enough that I decided to buy it. My plan is to read one challenge a week and see how that might work for me.
In terms of my knitting, that's been REALLY slow. Pk wanted a hat like her brother's and red is her favourite colour. They both have really liked the "Pink Pussy Hat" pattern from Kat Coyle and it's SO easy, it works for me, too. I got a red one done and another pink one. I think I have four or five more pinks to do before I get one for each of the friends who have requested one. Finally, the "Able Cable" blanket slowly proceeds. My friend's baby is due March 25, so it's time to get that off the needles!
