Still working on my
As I have written before, I knit
while driving to church...
so thought I would show two pictures I took
this weekend of the evening vigil service
We are all going towards the Cross right now
but I listened to a homily yesterday that
was so encouraging,
that Christ's glory is streaming from the Cross,
that we can be strengthened in our difficulties...
I love this spot with St. Nicholas' icon...
and it is wonderful to have such a beautiful church
to drive to while knitting...
So here's more pictures of how this blanket is going:
I did various blue squares...
still have to weave in the ends...
Wanted to show you a snapshot of the wonderful
bag I am now using to keep this project in!
I won this wonderful bag
from Wanda's Reinventing Mother's new endeavour:
These bags are gorgeous, durable, lightweight and seriously
a cinch to use!
I was not surprised in the least that Wanda is selling these bags,
at her newly opened Etsy store,
I am so excited for her!
She is offering the knitting world (and beyond) a wonderful
set of bags that are not only beautiful but work really well!
The bags I used before for knitting did not close at all and
I was always worried about losing things.
Now I just put my beloved
blanket squares in the bag,
and Cinch it!
Perfect for knitting, quick stowing, a real
grab and go!
Cinch it closed and I am off... :)
Keeping it simple is one of my knitting goals and
having my yarn, the squares and scissors in
this bag is a real delight!
And since it is a cloth bag,
I just put it in my much used red purse and I am good to go!
And, as you can see from the pile above,
I am slowly accruing more knitted squares for this blanket!
I am on a real Madeline L'Engle re-reading kick right now.
I think my favourite book of her's, at least of her YA fiction,
is her book, the Young Unicorns.
NYC, mystery, beauty, music and
really good writing.
I am loving it all over again.
So tell me,
what are you reading and creating?
Yarn Along with us!
