Heart Beets Shawl Yarn Along
My good friend (who happens to knit!) gave me the book Tuesdays with Morrie by Mitch Albom. She loves to thrift and when she sees a must read book she buys them to give away. Lucky me! I'm nearly through reading. My only wish is that I was reading this thought provoking book on life and death and it's meaning during the summer. Winter is not the time for me to read about death. It just isn't.
My daughter was reading The Story of My Life by Helen Keller while on break, I decided to revisit an old friend. I read this book when I was thirteen years old. This book along with a few others started the burning desire to read instead of socializing in my free time. I thought this was a good habit but my best friend did not. This book also started a list making habit of "books read" during the summer. I wish I had the list!
I'm still reading Blowing on Dandelions by Miralee Ferrell-nearly done! I hope I can finish before it has to be returned to the elibrary, I can only renew once and I feel the pressure :)
Don't you love that feeling of loving a new knitting project? Well, I started a new shawl with my beet yarn . The pattern is Go Fly a Kite even though the pattern is easy for someone who has dabbled in lace knitting, the instructions are a bit thin. Still I'm having fun! Here is the project page
