~ 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 clue one of my Tales from the Isle of Purbeck mystery knit along shawl yesterday. Two conclusions that I have reached are that I love the Hole & Sons yarn, and I love the pattern so far as well. Some of you asked what a mystery knit along is. This is only my second one. In a mystery knit along the designer releases one portion (called a clue!) of the pattern at a time. You have no idea going in what your finished object is going to look like. It really adds a fun twist to knitting! I don’t think it’s too late to join this one, because the first clue knit up pretty quickly. And really, if you get behind it doesn’t matter. I finished my last one way later than I planned, but still really enjoyed the process. I will likely get sidetracked or busy and fall behind on this one as well. No big deal!
I had kind of an emotional week with several days to myself (a combination of amazing and hard), and found myself needing doses of Heather King. I focused on her reflections on the Gospel of Luke in this book, and they were just perfect for where my head and heart were.
