Words and Wool

We are approaching a change in the seasons and that means time to sew more felted flowers! 

I'm just about finished with the second sleeve on Laura's Tea Leaves Cardi.

And once I finish the cardigan I need to figure out where I am on my own Mondo Cable Cardi and get this finished up so I can wear it this winter.

Also, did you see Susan B. Anderson's newest doll pattern?! Too cute!!!!!

As for books......

It was so exciting to receive in the mail this week my brother-in-law's first book!!!! JK has re-written a classic from the 19th century, making it more accessible for us today. Messiah the Prince was originally written by a Scottish theologian in the early 1800's and is a very important theological work on the role and rule of Christ Jesus as King. I can't wait to read this!!!! You can find more details here.

The Nesting Place: It Doesn't Have to Be Perfect to Be Beautiful by Myquillyn Smith is an awesome decorating book. I love it! I'm reading it through as if it were a potato chip novel. She is so inspiring and completely down-to-earth-reality. I should probably buy a copy to keep on my shelf!

I'm in the middle of several other books which I will tell you about when I finish them. :)

Seeing your knitting projects reminds me of my mother. Before her stroke she always had something going. I'm finding memories lie in the little things.

I made the Mondo Cable Cardi last fall for the 30 day sweater challenge and I love it!

Hi Heather! I love what you are knitting and I DO love the new doll pattern, too!
I've looked at that book. I might have to buy it!

I am working on a similar green sweater for Ellie now! I love that we have similar projects going!
I will have to send you a photo when I am finished.
