Yarn Along, Reading and CD Giveaway



Happy to be sharing with Ginny and all the others  joining in with this week's yarn along.
I have started knitting another vest using this sooo simple pattern with this beautiful shade of yarn from Peace Fleece - Lena's Meadow - gorgeous shades of green with specks of color throughout.

I have started reading Radical by David Platt.  I have always had stirrings inside that I don't live my life radically for Jesus and that there is so much more expected of me.  In Radical, the author challenges the readers to begin a journey of authentic discipleship - I mean would we really give up everything to follow him?  And what would that look like?

I also recently bought this music CD - seeds of praise - and it comes with an extra copy to give away!   It is fun CD for the whole family.  If you would like to be entered to win, just leave a note in your comment.


Looking forward to reading about what you are knitting and the books you are enjoying.
Warm wishes,
Tonya

  8. I just finished knitting a child's sunflower hat. I am so glad to be done with it, as it wasn't an easy knit...but I love how it turned out!

    I always love to see what you are knitting! :)

  11. Thank you for that pattern linking. I think you just found me my next knit. I've been needing a simple knit to work on during this busy time. Just printed it and now I get to pick a wool for it.
    I'd love to be entered in the giveaway. Thank you, dear Tonya!

  12. The colours in that yarn are so pretty.
    I have been meaning to get around to reading "Radical" for some time now. I've heard lots of good things about the book.
    David Platt is a very convicting speaker too!

  16. Can I be entered into your giveaway, thank you. I am currently knitting a large chicken (here in Australia we call them chooks) which will be felted. Her name is Henrietta and she will be an orangey greenish colour with red comb...eventually. I am using a Tepako (NZ) wool that felts very well.

  18. Oooh, I love the vest and the yarn. Simple is wonderful; I'm working up a simple 4-row repeat cowl for a friend and am loving it. Thanks for visiting my yarn along post earlier today...always nice to meet new knitters. :)

    Blessings,

    PS: Would love to be entered in your giveaway for the cd's. Your book sounds challenging since I've had the same feeling from time to time. :)

  19. I have heard about the book, but have not had the pleasure of reading it. It takes a strong commitment to truly be radical for Jesus!

    Your knitting is always so lovely Tonya :)

  24. Ohhh, that book looks so good Tonya! I'm really going to have to get a copy. We have Seeds of worship, and would love to have the seeds of praise cd. :-)

  25. Belated Mother's Day wishes! It looks as if you had a happy day. That yarn is just lovely. Unfortunately, I can't knit with anything that contains mohair, which I believe the Peace Fleece does. I would love to be entered for the give-away. I love to listen to praise music when I have to take the car any distance.
