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 finished The Diary of  Country Priest! It feels like an accomplishment, because I have attempted to read it several times in the past and failed. I’m really glad I saw it through this time. A friend told me it would pick up and be easier to read after the 100 page mark (or maybe a bit before) and she was right. I actually really loved it, and it made for a great book group discussion. Now I am reading The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything. Don’t we all need a spirituality for “real life”? I do. James Martin is very readable, so I hope to stick with this one.

I finally pulled my Mirry Dancers out of hibernation. Not much progress yet, but getting the second one cast on is a really good start!

  1. I wonder if you ended up finishing/liking the James Martin book. I have been trying to read it since you suggested it (I even bought it, I liked it so much, plus I was hogging the library’s only copy!) Finding time for reading anything more involved than a recipe is tough so I haven’t made it far. I like his attitude, his writing style, and his balance of being entertaining yet also serious and a mentor. Suggestions on other similar authors are welcome…

  2. Ah! You have flowers blooming, fairy houses, your bees are out and a bunny! Spring has arrived for you! I look forward to what is to come this Spring for us as well. All of your pictures give me hope that Winter won’t last forever.

  3. Ooh lovely knitting! The book sounds interesting

  4. I really want to read that BOOK! Thank you!!!

  5. I love James Martin and Jesuit’s Guide is one of my favourite books. I hope you enjoy. He also wrote a wonderful book called Between Heaven and Mirth that’s worth checking out.
