After taking last week off to rest (and read) some more, I am back for this week's yarn along, and with something new on the needles!
I ended up casting on a little shrug in some purple cotton yarn that I have had forever. It is knit in a rectangle and then the arms are sewn together by piecing the ends together. It seems like a very easy knit, and something that Emma will love. She is all about the knit by mama items lately, unfortunately most of those items take weeks and weeks to finish. I'm hoping that this one will be quick! We shall see! I do need to put it on some circular needles though, because my needles are not long enough for the amount of stitches.
As far as reading goes, I recently finished The Best Yes by Lysa TerKeurst - amazing book! I absolutely loved it! I am having a good month as far as reading goes, all of the books have been amazing, and that is saying something. Typically I will read one good book and then a couple of just OK books, but I have been happy with all of my selections recently. In case you haven't been reading here recently, the other books I am talking about are:
Interrupted by Jen Hatmaker
Make it Happen by Lara Casey
Own Your Life by Sally Clarkson
Now I am starting 7 by Jen Hatmaker. I bought this for kindle when it first came out, but I don't think I ever read it - not sure why! But, I am reading it now, and it is quite good. I just finished the chapter on food, and I'm not sure I could only eat 7 foods for one month...I mean of course I could do it, but it would be difficult. After reading Interrupted I have been thinking a lot about how much I have and how little others have.
What are you working on this week? Reading anything new?
