a cowl to knit and some books to read

While Charlotte practices Christmas pieces on the piano, reminding me of the approaching season, I do my own prep of sorts with the knitting of these cowls to be given as Christmas gifts. With fifteen inch needles and requiring only one skein of  *Lion Brand Wool Ease* yarn, they are extremely easy, very quick and so inexpensive to knit. I thought some of Ginny's yarn-along readers would enjoy making some also.

For concentrated reading, God is King by Tom Wells is an excellent book on God's sovereignty.  By my bedside is a book by Lynn Austin, Eve's Daughters,  which meets my need of before bedtime reading material when I find books must be of a lighter fare, but still must be an engaging story.

The cowls beg to be touched, the yarn looks so soft and has wonderful texture. If Christmas was mid winter here, there would be gift options like these also. :)

Both your books look like great reads too.

Those look so cozy and as Karen says, they make you want to touch them. The colors are yummy, too!

Beautiful! I love mine! :) I need to learn how to make them. I will have to get Priscilla to teach me!

I would love to slip one of those cowls on right now. You have been busy and I like all those pretty colors.

Funny how little things scurry into my mind these days. Things "au nouveau" that prick interest, the voice in the back of my mind ...
