Knitting and reading, there’s never enough time for either in my world. Here is the post that proves it – week after week of the same projects and books 🙂 Head over to small things to see what Ginny and everyone else have on the needles and book shelves.
I finished my BSJs so I got to cast on a new project last night. 🙂 The pattern is called “Irish Hiking Scarf” which is perfect for the project. It’s going to be a retirement gift for my mom who retires in November. I promised her years and years ago that when she retires I would take her to Ireland. And my dad retired seven years ago (wow, that long already?) and I think is looking forward to having a hiking buddy. So I’ll be making one for him too. But his will be a green not the deep purple for Mom. This is my first attempt at cabling and I’m not sure I’m not messing up the whole thing but it looks good in the picture 🙂
I’m about halfway through Signs of Life and still enjoying it. I think I’m going to have to add this to my wish list – it’s good for a reference and also for more spiritual reading with a quote to “ponder in your heart” at the end of each section. Next up when I finish this will be a book not from the summer reading list but one my DH picked up at the library. It’s about Amish faith and spirituality. And I can’t wait to read it. But it’s a good thing I’m still in the middle of a book because DH is reading it first 🙂
