yarn along

I knit the sweetest baby bonnet (free pattern!) the other night and just need to attach i-cord ties to it.  For some reason I’m having a mental block about best way to attach?  Any recommendations, knitters?  I have a 3 stitch i-cord.  I feel silly that I can’t figure it out.  I knit this bonnet with madelinetosh dk twist in color way snake.  Love the color so much.

Also, I received this beautiful book, Hinds’ Feet on High Placesto review.  I first read this book back in college and it was very special to me.  Recently my sister-in-law sent Phoebe a child’s version of it, which she has treasured.  I am really grateful to have a new pretty copy of this book myself to reread.  This story is a classic, an allegory about journeying from the lowlands of fear to the heights of trust, similar in some ways to Pilgrims Progress.  The cover of this book is stunning and the watercolor paintings sprinkled throughout are truly breathtaking.  A few special features are some coloring pages of key scriptures in the back of the book, as well as some words from the author, Hannah Hurnard, about how the book came to be, and a brief autobiography.  I would highly recommend it to anyone as a great gift book, especially for someone going through a trying or scary season.

Linking up with Nicole’s weekly Crafting On.

  1. That bonnet is scrumptious!! I love to see all these tiny things you are making. ❤️ I haven’t read Hinds Feet all the way through… began it ages ago and I would love to finish it. The child’s version is beautiful.

    1. Thank you! Yes, the child’s version has some extra devotional material sprinkled throughout and really was sweet to read through together as she prepared for her last endoscopy. Plus, her favorite animal is deer, so it particular hits home with her. 🙂
