yarn along

DSC_0015

Good morning, friends.  It’s another rainy Tuesday here in which it’s hard to find good light for photos.  That’s okay, though, I love the moody light on rainy days.  This week I’ve cast on for a birthday sweater for my Philippa who will be turning five exactly a month from today.  Sob.  This should knit up quickly as it’s a chunky weight sweater.  Last year Philippa didn’t really care for her birthday sweater so I thought I wouldn’t bother making another, and she has gone back and forth about whether she wants one, but I think if I knit for all the other kids and not her she will be bummed.  So, I’m trying to using some yarn that’s fun and colorful (which she picked out) and make an easy pullover and hope for the best.  She has requested socks and I hope to get a pair of those done, too.  Socks are really her favorite. 🙂

Also, I’ve begun On the Road with Saint Augustine.  This one looked really interesting to me and I’ve had a hard time putting it down thus far.  I think I will really enjoy it, but it’s a bit early to say.  There are some things already that I’m not sure I agree with.  However, it is a very timely read for me personally.  I have loved The Confessions by Saint Augustine since college and I’m eager to spend more time with him on these pages.

One thought on “yarn along

  1. Looks like a great book… I can’t wait to hear more about it as you make your determinations. Also- you have such a knack for yarn colors! That yarn is positively stunning. And I think you are right about erring on the side of MAKING- it would be sad if she felt left out on her birthday without anticipating feeling left out. 🙂
