Yarn Along Christmas

I finished my new ribbon scarf this week, it was quick, easy and fun to make. I’m not sure if I should keep it, sell it, or find someone to give it to…

Meanwhile, I’ve been reading the next book in the Little House series (and thoroughly enjoying it!) and The Littlest Angel–it’s a tradition in my family to read this book on Christmas Eve, so I read it aloud to Husband every year (he usually falls asleep somewhere in the middle). If you can ignore the erroneous doctrine (it’s a story, after all, not Scripture), this children’s book uses some of the richest vocabulary I’ve ever heard. When I was a little girl, I remember loving this book because although I didn’t understand what all of the words meant, I loved the sound of them–the cadence, rhythm and richness.

Yarn Along reading Secrets by Robin Jones Gunn.

I’m still working on last week’s knitting and reading, but I also dove into a few new things this week. Robin Jones Gunn was one of my favorite authors when I was a teenager, and her books bring back many memories of sitting on the window seat in my bedroom for hours and hours with her books. And I decided to try out a new boutique yarn–Red Heart Boutique Ribbons–just for fun =).
