I don’t have a minute to spare but I can’t resist popping in here for a minute to say hello! I went away for the weekend to a hermitage for some rest + solitude, and I hoped to get more knitting done than I did. I have finished Philippa’s birthday sweater, and it is blocking now, so it will be done in time for her birthday next week. I’m debating about casting on a little crown for her, too? Am I crazy!?
I finished the first sleeve on Phoebe’s birthday sweater, and maybe half way through the second sleeve. Then the hood, blocking, sewing on buttons and it will be done! I’m already gauge swatching for Noah’s sweater. (Both have birthdays the week of Christmas.) Busy, busy.
I began Hope Heals during my hermitage stay and just read luxuriously for hours on end. My sister-in-law sent it to me as a gift. Almost done with it! Quite the compelling story of a young woman in her late twenties and first years of marriage and motherhood suffering a massive stroke, miraculously surviving, and her journey to recovery. It’s written by both her and her husband, each telling their parts of the story. Beautiful and hopeful for me in a season with my own girl and her health issues, our continued battle for answers and hope. I need to remember that there really is power in hope.
Linking up with Ginny’s weekly yarn along to share our current knits + reads.

That sweater is going to be just darling on your girly! My daughter Lyddie turns seven today but alas, nothing handmade this time for her. Next year. Happy almost birthday Philippa!!
Wow, you are amazing – so much knitting at this busy time of the year! It will turn out adorable – I love the texture and the festive colour!
