Tending my yarn garden...
1/14/15




A single skein of KPs Cotlin in "brown sugar" destined to become a beanie to match a tiny cardigan knit for a dear friend's little man. A story that I look forward to reading at least a chapter of before nodding off each night, and THE story of stories that starts each day. Four washcloths finished and tucked away in my kitchen drawer. And a treat to my eyes...our Pastor's newborn daughter modeling a knitted gift from me. :)

Lot's of baby knitting going on 'round here of late. And a project I can't share just yet. What's on your needles? What have you been reading?

Joining Ginny :)

  3. You are having MUCH better luck than I did with Cotlin. I tried to make a washcloth with it and it was a MESS! Any tips?

  13. Baby knits! They never get old for me. I always whip one up when I get a chance and mail it off to friends or tuck it away for the future;)

  14. cute baby!! I also love baby knits - they go so fast... I really like the color of the yarn on your first picture, yay...seeing all the pretty yarns on yarn-along makes me want to have a yarn-shopping-spree...but I told myself - no more yarn until I reduce my stash and make it fit in one basket :P

    You top photo looks so familiar. I love Jan Karon's books and your Bible is exactly like mine. I went to replace my 30 yo Bible and was very distressed they do not print the Open Bible anymore....

    1. My Open Bible is my night stand Bible; it's the one I've had the longest and I love it. The one I use and carry to church is my New Geneva Study Bible (now sold only in ESV as the Reformation Study Bible -- I prefer the NKJV, but that's what I've used my entire adult life).
      Blessings! ~Lisa
