Tending my yarn garden...
Digging deep into the bottom of my knitting bag, I brought a few old friends out of hibernation this week. That, my friends, is the jade hitchhiker I took with me in July thinking I'd be knitting away during all those miles of travel across the US...and the other project is a pair of Perfect Fit Newborn Socks I cast on somewhere early this summer. Ravelry notes here and here. :) While digging I also discovered my Tea Leaves and thought, "you poor thing!" Sigh. One simply cannot do it all! Sneaking a minute here and there to knit a few stitches is pure bliss these busy, busy days...I'll take what I can get. I still hope to finish the Tea Leaves in time for my 50th this fall, so feel free to cheer me on!
Practicing Hospitality continues to be an inspiring read -- when I can find the time to read it. A page here, a paragraph there will have to do. But in this busy season of life I'm in, I am truly appreciating the encouragement to pursue hospitality as a means of taking my eyes off of myself and casting them on to another. Considering how I can meet the needs of others rather than simply focusing on my own.
So how's your yarn garden blooming? Please share in the comments and join me at Ginny's!
