First–I finished Beatrix’s sweater!! I will try to get some photos of it today. She’s really pleased with it!

Completing a big project makes me want to cast on something new, but I have several projects already on the needles. I need to finish this pink jumper for Mabel if she’s going to get any use out of it. I started it last spring with cold January and February days in mind. I set it aside to wait till closer to the time Mabel would be wearing it, wanting to get the fit right. The yarn is some I dyed with madder root right after finding out we were having another little girl.

Beyond my Advent journal, I haven’t been reading much, though I need to start thinking more about getting strong and trying to put my self back together in a sense. So, I picked up Katy Bowman’s book on Diastasis Recti. She actually makes it entertaining to read about what might otherwise be a boring topic (though an important one for some of us!)

I’m truly in the home stretch on Bea’s Sunday Sweater! I’m halfway through the second sleeve. The neckband is already finished, so I’ll just have ends to weave in, blocking, and buttons (they’re already picked out.) Of course, first I have to finish that sleeve…

I’m in Advent reading mode now, focusing on By the Manger in the Morning, by my friend Elizabeth Foss. It’s a beautiful prayer journal that includes the daily Mass readings along with reflections and journaling space. Elizabeth is a gifted writer and seems to always touch my heart with everything she puts on paper. This journal is no exception. Hard copies sold out, but you can get a digital version and print it!
