Since last week, I have finally cast on Wren’s birthday bunny sweater. The yoke has a sweet bunny motif and I think she will love it. Now any time she sees me knitting on something she asks if it’s for her. She was thrilled when she heard this project finally was for her (though she hasn’t quite figured out the design on it yet and I do hope to keep it a surprise). I have about a week to finish it and hope I can make it. The yoke is knitting slowly because it’s fingering weight yarn, and the pattern isn’t intuitive for me and needs constant checking. Once I’m past the yoke I hope it flies and I’m able to finish it in time. It is really nice to work on though, giving me lots of spring feels. All other projects are on hold until this one is done.
I’m nearly done with Lila and am reading it in the evenings. In my morning reading time I’ve been reading Delighting in the Law of the Lord, which has been so very rich and good thus far. I bought it a few years ago and never have gotten around to reading it, and now the time is right. I appreciate Barrs as an author and it has been good to read something theological again. Though I’m coming to this book with my own personal wrestlings, it is remarkable how much it is speaking to our times and the philosophy/worldview of our age and is bringing clarity for me on a lot of what is going on in the world and culture around us. I highly recommend it! It is theological without being heady, and is engaging and readable.
What might you be reading and making this week?
