Knitting and Reading again for the Yarn Along

Joining with Ginny at Small Things again this Wednesday - don't the weeks just go by so fast?  I am knitting these sweet little Mary Jane style wool booties for our shop.  They are a quick and easy knit and again from my favorite knitting book, Vintage Knits for Modern Babies.

With just a few pages left to go in Deeply Rooted, I am looking for another bedtime book.  Deeply Rooted is again, a great read if you are passionate about food, and specifically about keeping our food choices local as much as possible and out of the hands of big business.

This little book, Small Acts of Kindness, is a children's book that was recommended and how wonderful to go along with our kindness theme.  It is just great - starting with one small act of kindness from a little boy giving his mother a hug in the morning and how that leads to another act of kindness from his mother to someone else, and so on and so on....

Looking forward to finding out what you reading and knitting or crocheting.


  1. I love the idea of a kindness theme...

  2. The booties are just adorable.
    I just added Deeply Rooted to my list,
    I think my husband and I would both
    enjoy reading it! Thanks.

  3. Sweet booties! I've enjoyed so many of your book recommendations and now I have one for you- Evolving in Monkey Town by Rachel Held Evans. Wow!


  4. I have that pattern saved for my newest little one...just have to find time with the needles.

  5. I'll have to search for the kindness book and that vintage knitting one too. Such sweet booties.

  6. I love the booties - I am hoping to crochet some similiar very soon. And thank you for the tip off on "Deeply Rooted" - your description reminders me of "Animal Vegetable Miracle" - which I love!

  7. I've always wanted to make a pair of Mary Jane booties. Seeing yours is inspiring me on. I know I have a Debbie Bliss pattern somewhere.

  9. That kindness theme is just so lovely... and those booties!!! Just gorgeous!

  10. Adorable booties! I have been out of knitting for a while and am thinking of learning crochet for something new and exciting..and faster than knitting! Let me know if you have any good resources for learning to crochet!

  11. the booties are so sweet...I just love little baby feet. We just finished up a book club read this week ans so I'm ready to start our new book. Sarah's Key....I'll let you know if I enjoy it or not. Have a great week!
