to knit and to read

It seems almost to good to be true, almost a daily diet of knitting which has allowed for another yarn along with Ginny this week, especially since the matter of being in the process of reading is never a problem for me.

Fingerless mitts in a jade green wool with flecks of navy blue, I like to call this a tweed yarn. Do any of you have the proper name for it? I am reading a book worthy of attention for all women, What Is A Family? by Edith Schaeffer. But then any book by her might be worth your attention. Just as the sun was heading toward the west a quick photo was shot on the paved stones outside.

I am certainly enjoying this yarn along, thank you Ginny!

"Daily diet of knitting"... that's what I need! Recommended at least a half hour! lol

Tweed sounds good to me :o). I've read one of Edith Schaffer's books before. It was a very interesting read.

Blessings!

I'd call it tweed too. The picture is gorgeous with the sun hitting the yarn like that!

Terrific color for your fingerless'. Just perfect for these pre-spring days.

Edith Schaeffer is wonderful. I love her books. What is a Family, along with the Hidden Art of Homemaking are two that I have re-read several times over the past 18 years...

Blessings, Debbie

I just finished a cowl scarf yesterday. I'm looking through my stash of patterns to decide what to make next. I love to knit and crochet more-so in the cooler months, it seems.
That book has been on my to read list for too long. I must get it.

You seem to create such a peaceful environment in your home. Even the color of your yarn is soothing. =)

wednesday granola

A Wednesday morn in May appears to be a very good day to begin a binge of healthy eating once again.  This granola is super easy to make...
