I've been wanting to knit something with this lovely skein of lace weight merino a friend sent me from New Zealand several years back. I finally found a shawl pattern to try. The wool is finer than the pattern calls for but I did that on purpose and it will kind of be an experiment to see how it works out....The pattern is Henslowe and can be found on Ravelry.
Transforming Grace: Living Confidently in God's Unfailing Love by Jerry Bridges is an amazing book! Why have I not known about this book before this year? My friend Candice recommended it and I'm so glad that I checked it out of the library. This book gives such a beautiful picture of God's grace and what His grace means for us. It will be one of my most highly recommended books of the year.
The House at Riverton: A Novel by Kate Morton is set in England both in modern times and the 1920's. If you are a fan of Downton Abbey this is a great novel to read. The story is told by an elderly woman who served as a lady's maid in one of the manor houses of England. It involves a suicide (or murder?) and plenty of interesting twists.
You can find more wool and words over at Ginny's Yarn Along.
