I have wanted to join in with this wonderful group over at http://www.gsheller.com/ sharing a WIP and a current read,for awhile now and finally am ready on the right day.
On the needles, a Yule gift for my Dad, big, thick, manly hand warmers, pattern from Last minute knitted gifts. A quick and easy knit, a tube of double rib with a gap left for the thumb, adding extra length after the opening as pattern was abit mean with length on hand.
Some current reads, my Amish interest is fed by these gentle books by Beverly Lewis, a treat from Florida.Tales of buggies, cooking, knitting and all things homely are perfect for the end of the day, afew chapters snuggled down in bed under a patchwork quilt, bliss.
Another book picked up in America and the last Little House book I had to read, always a treat although this thin, little book was full of struggle and hardship for Laura and Manly, and although I knew somewhere in those pages was the loss of a baby boy, when it came, described in 2 short lines, ofcourse it left me a weeping mess.
What are you reading ?
