Tending my yarn garden...
I'm really am trying to keep my Ravelry page up-to-date this year, and so far so good (hoping this encourages a friend or two (you know who you are!) to upload their projects, too!). With my garter lace triangle shawl finished, I was able to cross an item off my 50 before 50, a list which, by the way, sorely needs updating, I know. Anyway, it's exciting to cross even one item off! The fact that I'm on the verge of grandma-hood overshadows just about everything on that list -- yes, the baby girl will be arriving before my 50th in October. :)
My crochet hook has been my near constant companion this week, as I'm in love with the organic cotton that is becoming a summer blanket for said grandbaby. Wish you could feel how soft and light it is -- wonderfully perfect for this project which is, by the way, my second "Stitches" project. :) AnnaLynn and I tried to catch up on our granny squares this week, but we're still one behind; hopefully, we'll have pictures to share next week.
We finished The Scarlet Letter yesterday and had a good talk about the burden of unconfessed sin (Numbers 32:23). None of us particularly enjoyed this book, so we're glad to be done with it. We're still reading all the others pictured above and have started in on Doug Bond's Crown and Covenant historical fiction readers which tell the story of the Scottish Covenanters; the papa is reading these aloud in the evenings -- our second time through these family favorites (can it be that four years have past since our last tour through American history?).
So what's growing in your yarn garden? What books are you reading? Please share in the comments and join me at Ginny's, Tami's & Suzanne's :)
