This week I’ve been working on several projects, but I am knitting on my grey goose shawl the most because it is so easy to work on during the day while I am with my kids.  Funny thing about kids, the way that the older ones run if they notice the camera, but my youngest always want to be in pictures.  Beatrix is a regular photo-bomber these days.  If she notices me taking pictures, she is sure to insert herself in the frame.

I’m reading Simplifying the Soul, and while it is written to be read over the weeks of Lent starting at the beginning, I just started it.  I actually bought it a few years ago, but put it on a shelf and forgot about it.  I am finding the first part on simplifying space to be really helpful.  Proof is in the fact that I cleaned behind and under my refrigerator today.  The assignment was to clean a hidden space and not to tell anyone in the family.  Of course they all know because they were in the room….

The exciting news is that I have a new Yarn Along button!  The wonderfully talented Leanne made it and I love it! Don’t worry, the old ones still work, but if you would like to swap out your Yarn Along buttons for the new one, you can grab the code below:

Just before Job was born, I was gifted a beautiful shawl knit in The Fibre Co.’s Meadow yarn.  That shawl has become one of my most worn knits, partially because it’s lovely to wear something that someone else made for me, but also because I really love the feel of that yarn.  It’s fine and delicate, yet sturdy.  It isn’t soft in the way a pure merino yarn is, but it is soft in it’s own unique way.  I can’t really describe it!

So now I am knitting with Meadow myself, a shawl that is meant to be a gift as well.  The colorway I chose is called Larkspur, and I think it’s beautiful.  (My Ravelry notes are here.)

I’m still reading Don Camillo, but am also reading a new to me gardening book, Vegetable Gardening in the Southeast.  I’ve been gardening for an embarrassingly long time to still be as terrible at it as I consider myself to be.  Information doesn’t stick with me, I have to look everything up all over again every year.
