~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
It’s finally time to start the decreases on Keats’ hat. I am following this pattern. I will be so very glad to be finished with this project! All the ribbing is making me want to knit lace, but I am afraid that I would end up with a big mess of mistakes if I attempted anything complicated right now.
I started reading Ann’s new book, The Greatest Gift, over the weekend. For the past few years we have celebrated the Jesse Tree with our children during Advent (this is my favorite Jesse Tree devotional book for children.) The Greatest Gift is essentially an Advent devotional for adults, centering around the tradition of the Jesse Tree. The length of the readings is really manageable, so it should be easy to stick with this, especially since I love Ann’s writing. I think that reading this each evening, once my kids are in bed, will help me maintain my focus on what’s important this season.
