I'm joining in again this week for the yarn and book sharing fun over at the Yarn Along. If you're looking for project inspiration or an interesting book recommendation, you should check it out!
I love knitting baby washcloths. They're quick, small, easy, and don't require lots of attention which makes them great projects for those times when you're riding in the car, visiting with friends, or watching a movie. Mine are made using Lion Brand's organic cotton yarn which I love using because even the dyes are organic!
The white cap is a crocheted work in progress. I've been trying out some new stitch patterns and am fairly pleased with this one which is a half double crochet in the front loop and then the back loop of alternating stitches. I do plan to redo the edging to add a little flair. For this one I'm using Cotton Ease by Lion Brand.
Health for Godly Generations is a book I picked up a couple weekends ago at the Vision Forum booth while at the Christian Heritage conference. I've been skimming it and finally dove in to read it cover to cover. I've only just started, but I'll share this quote to give you an idea of where this book is going:
"Being an American with many food choices and opportunities of food to consume, and many conflicting suggestions from media about what contributes to health, has influenced the angle from which I share...Undeniably, health problems are around us; now is the time to think like Christians for the glory of God and the benefit of His temples, our bodies...health is directly linked to food consumption and other lifestyle factors. Only in the previous century has the prevalence of degenerative diseases and newfangled foods risen noticeably and simultaneously."I'm really looking forward to working my way through this one!
So, what are you reading? What's on your hook or needles?
