I finished reading Knitlandia this week, and loved reading about all the different knitting conferences.  I started reading O Rugged Land of Gold yesterday, but I am not sure that I am up for the story right now.  This time of year is a little stressful and this book is about a woman: pregnant, injured, and stranded in a remote part of Alaska.  Maybe not what I need right now, but intriguing nonetheless.

I am close to finishing my Emiliana shawl, but am struggling to find time to knit.  Soon, I hope!

  1. Just recently discovered this blog of a lovely Christian woman who deals with a lot of books that are more calm, beautiful and good – healing even – for the soul. http://laniersbooks.com/ I still have to read more calm books; my go-to healing/beauty/deeply Christian author is Elizabeth Goudge. You may love her _Scent of Water_ or _The Dean’s Watch_ … God bless you! and yes, good to know what books are right for you at the time you are in!

  2. That shawl is so pretty!!

    Your shawl is magnificent! Love the colors! I may check out the book. I’m reading the Outlander series. Just going to start number 6, but in between I try to read a different type of book. This one is Cold Sassy Tree by Olive Ann Burns. It’s a great read! I dont write much on these but I lovevthis site, thank you.

  4. Ha! “intriguing nonetheless”
    I found that funny. I like to watch serious dramas, when really I shouldn’t, because they affect my mood by bringing me down. I’m trying to watch more comedy movies.
    You tend to read serious stuff. I think you need more light hearted material.

  5. I just finished knitting Silverleaf by Lisa Hannes and after seeing your Emiliana it is next on my list, I love yours.

  6. The book does sound fascinating, but I am wth you… maybe not this time of year.

  7. That purple and cream is such a nice contrasting pattern. I’m eagerly watching your Emiliana grow!

  8. your shawl is beautiful. and i might add the perfect color. many thanks for hosting, you sure are a busy lady!!

  9. Oo that book looks like one I will need to add to my reading list! (Alaska!)

  10. Um….you need to shelf that book so it doesn’t trigger unwanted anxiety! I haven’t read knitlandia yet but it’s on my list. that never ending list!

I love to hear from you!
