Yarn Along

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading and I love sharing my projects and current reads here. I would love for you to join me every Wednesday to share a single photo of what you are knitting (or crocheting) and reading too! Share your photo on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us!~

I am enjoying Gilead more than I have any book in a long time.

I pulled out my Stepping Stones sock to work on this week…sure wish I was on the second sock, rather than the first! I think these socks will be really cozy if I ever finish them.

  1. I love the sound of that book. While I had a wee break from my ‘bussy-ness’ after Christmas, I took the opportunity
    to look through the books you recommend and I ended up pinning a whole bunch of them. I am a Christian ( but just not Catholic), yet I have always enjoyed and been inspired by books about Saints; especially woman. Thank you for sharing your ideas, life & things that inspire with us all.
    God’s richest blessings to you and your family this year – Linda

  2. Giliad has been recommended to me by so many people, over decades — I have a feeling that this will be the year that I finally read it! I appreciate your recommendation.

  3. Ginny, I tried to delete my previous link/photo but was not able to – from coffee thyme in the big woods. That WordPress blog crashed and I was unable to fix it so I just went home to blogger. Please feel free to delete that one. Sorry for the bother.

    Ginny, do you knit socks for Jonny? If so, can you suggest a pattern? I want to knit myself a pair of over-the-calf tube socks but I haven’t come across a pattern yet on the ‘net. Help! Thank you in advance. Richard.

  5. Diana Smith says:

    But don’t you feel satisfied when you finish that second sock? I always have a pr. going on size 1 needles and fine yarn. Have considered learning some of the faster methods of two -at-a time but have made so many prs. I don’t have to think what my hands are doing.

  6. Ginny, love the colors of your sock. They will be nice and warm!

  7. It’s gotten really, really cold here today. Those socks look absolutely perfect for a day like today!

  8. I’ve made those socks! Keep going, Ginny!! You’ll love them when they’re done. 🙂

  9. Lovely sock! I have two partially done with yarn that I dyed myself, I am hoping that I’ll get them done one day! One had been completed… but then I decided that the toes were too tight, so I have cut the toe off and need to pick up stitches and finish again.

  10. I have real problem finishing the second sock & my Christmas tree is decorated with far too many lonely socks as a result (& baby mittens). Happy Belated Birthday, Ginny! xx

    • Considering that I’m having a problem finishing the first one (I had planned for these to be my “hospital socks” when I had Mabel) I think I’m in trouble!

  11. Gosh, I love your sock! Both the pattern and the yarn.

I love to hear from you!
