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 made good progress on my shawl this week, wanting really badly to reach the first lace panel.  I’m a little ways into the chart now, so this shawl has gotten a lot more interesting, but also a lot harder to work on.  I’ll only be able to work on the lace panels at night when everyone is asleep!

I’m mostly doing homeschooling related reading right now, but I’m also reading Then There Were Five to my girls.  This is by far my favorite of  the Melendy books, and my girls agree.  It’s a fantastic read aloud.

Celebrating Saint Teresa of Calcutta {In the Loft giveaway}


My little girls have a small, beloved collection of Sue Dow’s hand painted wooden figures.  Each of them also has a wishlist of those they would like to add to their collections.  They fussed at me recently when Sue sent me St. Teresa of Calcutta and I told them that she was for me!  I love St. Teresa as so many do, and I am excited that Sue has added her to the saints in her shop, In the Loft.  I think most of you who read my blog regularly know Sue’s work, but if not, you can read more about her and her art here.





Today, Sue would like to give one Small Things reader a St. Teresa of Calcutta hand-painted wooden figure.  In addition, she is offering 10% off all saint figures in her shop using the coupon code ALLSAINTS10.  The discount is good through Friday.  All Saints Day is coming up soon, followed closely by Advent!

Thanks, Sue!
