Yarn Along-4046

Just a little bit of shawl knitting this week, but I started a new book, Searching for and Maintaining Peace: A Small Treatise on Peace of Heart.ย  It was recommended as a good book for the start of a new year.ย  I really like it so far.ย  Lots to think about and practice, but not too challenging to read, even at bedtime when I am tired.

  1. I’m reading “Sense and Sensibility” by Joanna Trollope (a remix of the original) and knitting a baby blanket right now. Love the color of your yarn.

  2. I think we could all use a small treatise to read. Whew! Your yarn is very lovely, too. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. Ginny, That is a book I am going to look into ordering. Thank you for sharing and hosting this too! Love, Tonya

  4. Tanya Bailey says:

    I’m doing the exact same pattern right now! I’m about 1/2 way done. I am doing it in Peppermint by Mountain Girl Yarn. I’m loving it. Such an easy knit.

  5. I dont always join, but I always spend time reading the others who join you weekly. I love it

  6. I love how your knitting and reading match :). Looking forward to seeing the finished shawl…it is a lovely color.
    My last yarn along was roughly a year and a month ago. Oh how I’ve missed it so. But all this baby knitting has encouraged me in drumming the old blog back up! Thanks for your continual Wednesday inspiration!!

  7. I was looking at that shawl a couple of weeks ago when I was hunting for one to knit and noticed some people on Ravelry had quite a peak at the top center and some had none at all. I passed it by not knowing why. I wonder, is yours straight or peaked?

  8. Fr. Jacques Phillippe’s books always come highly recommended. I’ve begun one but abandoned it. I should dive in again.

    I love how your books and yarns always seem to match each other! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  9. That book is going in my cart! I could use a little help with that.

  10. Beautiful yarn. I look forward to seeing it finished. I think I may have to take a look at that book myself. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. The colour of your yarn is beautiful. I wonder if it’s yarn you’ve dyed yourself?

  12. I L-O-V-E that book. LOVE.

  13. Hi Ginny! Your shawl looks pretty! Take care of your sweet self. I SO needed a little nap every day when I was pregnant.

  14. I am ordering your book, sounds like something I need to read right now.

  15. Probably a silly question, but how/where do you store all your handknit shawls? Folded flat in a drawer/chest? In a closet draped on hangers? Although I think I recall you writing about having few if any closets…just wondering how those who wear (and knit) several or many shawls keep them when not in use. I still need to finish my first shawl. Wish I could wrap up in one today…well below zero windchill is no fun.

  16. love how your shawl and the book match ๐Ÿ™‚ Seeking and keeping peace is a life long goal !!

I love to hear from you!
