Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

DSC_7654I picked up the front band on Beatrix’s Leksak tunic last week and finished it.ย  Two sleeves to go.

A couple of weeks ago I started working on a reading list for my nephew and someone suggested Ishmael Or, In the Depths.ย  It’s a free Kindle download and somehow I found myself reading it.ย  I had never heard of this book before, but I am enjoying it-thoroughly engrossed at this point.

(Thank you for all your support over the past week and a half.ย  I really appreciate you guys.)

  1. Hi Ginny,
    I’ve been reading your blog for awhile now, and it blesses me so much; it’s my favorite one to read! I love your pictures, and knitting, and book recommendations. I’m sorry to hear about your friend, and will pray you receive comfort, and, on the other side of mourning, are changed in a good way. I wanted to tell you that I’ve read Ishmael (and loved it), and there is a sequel that you will want to read when you reach the end! It’s called Self-Raised, or From the Depths, and it looks like there is a free Kindle edition. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You are in my thoughts! So glad to hear from you, see your knitting and next book that you are reading!!! Keep going- Sarah would want you to!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Stopped by to Yarn Along and am only now reading about your loss. I am so sorry and am sending you and your friends my deepest sympathies. I hope memories of better days help you all through these dark times.

  4. Very pretty blue ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Ginny, what a beautiful color for your tunic. Keeping you all in my prayers…

  6. So much love, Ginny. The sweater is beautiful.

  7. This is the third book recommendation I have taken from you and I have yet to be disappointed! You should start a book club. ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Thumbs up, Ginny, for keeping going.

  9. I can’t imagine your pain. This loss has made me hug my babies tighter and made me try just a little harder everyday, although I fail miserably most times. I do pick myself up again, by gods grace. You aren’t alone Ginny, you are in my prayers.

    Grace and peace!

  10. Knitting is a good salve for the soul, I have found. xx

  11. I hope getting back to knitting has helped ease your soul. That sweater is quite pretty. Still praying for Sarah’s family and you.

  12. I love the color of this tunic. You do such beautiful work.

    Praying for your family and Sarah’s as you process this loss. ((Hugs)) Your post the other day about taking a chance gave me tearful happy memories. I made a wonderful friend by forcing myself to do just that when we lived in Okinawa. As a military kid and now military spouse, I had the bad habit of turning in and not reaching out. Luckily I decided I was going to stop doing that and try to make some friends no matter how long we – or they – would live somewhere. I kept seeing the same lady in the magazine aisle of our base store, and finally approached her to ask how old her baby was and if she’d like to meet up to go walking and discuss books and magazines. Turned out she lived one building down from me and we became best friends. We had almost three years together as neighbors. My heart aches for you and for your dear friend’s family. Thinking of you all!

  13. Sending love and prayers for your family and Sarah’s.

  14. Still praying for Sarah, her family, and you.

    I love the peaceful and deep color.

  15. Ginny,

    Praying for you and Amanda’s family. It is so terribly sad and when in these trials happen, it is so difficult to believe that God has a plan. I’m pray His love and strength shows you everyday . His grace is sufficient . May His healing arms hold each of you, in Jesus name.

  16. I love this tunic pattern as well. Precious.

    Still praying, every day.

  17. That tunic is just beautiful.

    I linked up for the first time today. I’ve been pretty shy, before now.

  18. That is beautiful. I hope that you have been able to find solace and comfort in knitting, I know that it really helps me.

  19. A very pretty knit and color of yarn.

  20. Your tunic is beautiful Ginny and hooray for sleeves.

  21. Beautiful shade of blue that you are working with and it matches your ereader cover!
