|I just noticed how color-coordinated my book, knitting, and bag are!|
I'm currently working on The Dudester scarf for Al. His birthday comes so soon after Christmas, and I made him two hats that were ready on time, but this scarf is a little late. It's a dressier look and goes well with his black dress coat. I'm using Lion's Wool-Ease worsted in Oxford Grey. When I'm done with this one, I think I'll choose a more casual scarf to make him that he can wear with his everyday winter parka. Maybe this one.
I also wanted to show off my new little project bag. I found it in the clearance section of Walmart for $1.50. It's called a "document file", but it works so much better as a knitting bag! Most knitters don't care for zippers on their project bags as they can catch the yarn inside, but so far, I've had no problems.
Right now, I'm reading Anything by Jennie Allen. Can I be honest, here? It's not really rocking my world like I was hoping it would. Maybe the problem lies with me, because really, there are some seriously Godly women I know who have been deeply changed by this book and are on their second and third time through it. What I am enjoying are the Friday morning discussion group meetings with some of the women from church. Not only are we spending time in good conversation, it's giving me the opportunity to get to know some of these women better and to feel even more like I'm part of our new church community. Maybe I'd get more out of it in a second reading. More likely, I'll probably grab that copy of Call the Midwife that I saw at our library the other day...
