Yarn Along

Linking up with Ginny's Yarn Along this week.  I have been dreaming about Veera's Color Affection for some time, now.  Just trying to figure out if I can use yarn I have - or do I need to get something to go along with what I have.  This lovely alpaca came from Charlottesville and a trip to Stony Mountain Fibers with my sister last spring.  I loved the color and bought two big skeins not even knowing what size needle to use or what to knit with it.  It is LUSH-ous.

The novel Pope Joan is a fast read - I love historical fiction and this fits the bill.  Huh?  There was a woman pope, ever?  Interesting, indeed.

Last week I finished 7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess by Jen Hatmaker.  Month by month Jen gives up something - almost like fasting in different areas of her life.  For the first month - food - she eats only 7 items all month long.  This book really gets to how we spend and do without thinking and how taking a break from some or all of it - in even small bursts - can rejuvinate and restore us in our thinking about how and why we were created.  Loved it and would read it again.

  3. I just stumbled upon your blog by accident, and I'm so glad I did! What a coincidence, I just finished 7 as well! I LOVED it, and I feel like it has changed my perspective forever. At least I hope so. Thanks for sharing!
