I have made a lot of fun royal blue wash clothes...
knitting on the PATH train to NYC, the subway in NYC,
at my friend's house in Pittsburgh,
at this conference which I highly recommend listening to
so insightful, powerful and such love...
I met a lot of dear ones at the Conference,
though I was careful not to get too peopled out,
as I wanted this to be something fun,
not an overwhelming experience for me,
a cross between introvert and extrovert.
So there were a lot of people who I know from them being online,
but I did not introduce myself to them as it would have
been too much in such a short time.
That said, I really enjoyed myself, felt it went really well
and between that and an earlier visit to the
Elwood City Monastery, so beautiful ...
God gave me this feeling of peace, of joy, of love,
that I had not felt like that in a very long time,
as in that abundance, like I was floating along by God's mercy...
one of those rare times of blessings,
I am so grateful for that.
So it's been nice to be knitting simple
wash clothes... and in so many places!
I have a few more I need to weave ends in...
I think I will not start any bigger projects until the Fall as
the heat makes it hard to do much else!
I am hoping to sew more though,
and began the beginnings of a simple pillow,
the picture below is of the front of this pillow...
As for reading,
I am dipping into this Psalter, which is so lovely,
reading slowly this book of letters,
which I am pondering and learning so much from;
still a bit in shock about it),
and am reading tons of cooking things, including this new to me blog,
and ordered new stack of cookbooks and memoir cookbooks
to enjoy in the coming months!
I am so glad Ginny is doing the Yarn Along once a month now,
even though I have not been able to join for some time!
I have met some wonderful blog friends through Ginny's Yarn Along
and am grateful for it and them!
If you create with fiber/yarn,
yarn along with us!
