tending my yarn garden :)
Reading continues to be Psalms and Proverbs in the morning; a Psalm or two during the quiet hours before Dan makes his way downstairs, and after breakfast the kids and I take turns reading a Proverb -- yesterday was the 18th, so we read Proverb 18. Verse 10 was underlined years ago; often I write a note to myself in the margin reflecting upon the passage. Wondering what was on my mind when I drew those red lines as I left no commentary...
I have abandoned Daniel to make his way through the Bahnsen on his own and am instead reading all I can about natural sprays/treatments for fruit trees. I am determined to pick some fruit from our trees this year. :) Bedtime reading is still Little House, although I tend to nod off easily these days, it's slow going even though I adore Laura's stories.
On the needles is my adopted blanket which is coming along quite nicely. Having discovered that the four row repeat only requires special attention on row 1 (rows 2-4 are all knit or purled as the stitches present), I threw caution to the wind and rid myself of those pesky row markers! :) If I had nothing to do but knit, I'd have it done in a day or two, but I'm aiming for the weekend.
Baby boy socks were gifted on Sunday morning and the extras were set aside for future baby showers. The gals in our congregation keep the babies coming which keeps my needles busy; just the way I like it. Newly cast on (yes, a new project...couldn't help myself) was a pair of red booties which were requested by Charlotte's mama. Couldn't say no. Would you? I didn't think so. :)
What are you reading/knitting/crocheting? Please share in the comments and join me at Ginny's. :)
