Yarn along, read along, get along


I'm in the middle of a few things that aren't quite ready to share yet, but you can find me over at Blessed is She today talking about prayer...specifically about calling God "Father" and what that means for our relationships with each other.

In other news, fall always makes me feel like knitting. I've been a dormant knitter for a while, but I pulled out this cowl this past week that has been unfinished for a long time, and I got back to work.



I still really like it! This is significant, because usually when I've had something hibernating for this long, it just doesn't make me as happy to work on it as it did before.

Nora says the needles are "more impressive" than the cowl. (I am really smitten with those, too.)



Our much-anticipated book club meeting is this Sunday afternoon, and I still have to make my way through about 40 pages of The Death of Ivan Ilyich. It's not exactly a light read, but it's not long, either. That's okay with me. Next month, we'll be reading All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. I'm pretty excited to be leaving Russian classics behind for a little bit.

What are you reading? What are you making? I'm linking up with Ginny at Small Things for the first time ever, because I always mean to and never seem to get around to it. (If you go over there, please be kind and don't compare my knitting to those folks'- it's amazing and inspiring what people can do with yarn).
