Yarn Along


From Ginny~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog, on Instagram (#yarnalong), or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~
I wanted to just back on the bandwagon and join in this week's Yarn Along over at Ginny's Small Things blog.  I have to admit I don't read much (knitting and crocheting take up most free time), but I am between paying jobs right now so a woman can always dream.  
I have started, and found quite helpful, Father Jonathan Morris' book, The Way of Serenity-Finding Peace and Happiness in the Serenity Prayer.  I have been searching for a book that would be easy to read and comforting to the soul. This book is both! It needs to be easy to read because my concentration level right now is quite low. 
And this leads us to my other very easy, light, read: A Patchwork Murder--by Jan Fields. Cozy mysteries are just about my speed these days. 
Since I am between paying knitting jobs right now, I have dived head first into some charity knitting.  The charity I am knitting and crocheting for right now is The Preemie Project. There is a great need for these little items for the most precious little patients around the country.  The Preemie Project website offers patterns and sizing...which is very, very helpful.  
It's the middle of the "4th of July" hat and bootie drive.  We want these babies all decked out for the summer holidays.

You do such beautiful work! I envy your skills. I know what you mean about a short attention span right now. I have two books going and can only make it through a page before daydreams and responsibilities distract me. Hang in there though. In spite of this rain I know that God is going to send the sun and warm weather again. Love and prayers to you. I have been praying for Matt and his wife too.

Such sweet baby knits! I spend most of my time with my yarn so not much reading gets done on my part either.

I love those baby knits! Such a great idea for charity work. I'm sure the recipients will love them.

What lovely baby knits! I haven't had time for charity knitting but I have always wanted to do some. Both of my babies came home from the hospital with a knit hat and I have saved both. I wish I could thank the knitters!
