Knitting and Reading

This wonderful week of "in between" finds me finishing up some mindless but enjoyable knitting.  I am on the last color of my basket weave stitch blanket using Peace Fleece yarn.

I just finished what is not my most favorite Christian nonfiction, The Secret Thoughts of an Unlikely Convert - so good!

My before sleep read is a simple book that requires very little intelligent thought but helps to clear my brain enough to fall asleep.
The yarn in the picture with the books is a skein of wool that Mike gave me for Christmas.  My goal for 2015 is to  become a more skilled knitter to  make pretty things for nest year's gifts. 

With the new yarn I would like to try this claret cowl that Ginny shared the other day.

Joining in for the Knit Along.


  1. Your blanket is lovely. The cowl looks beautiful...I know it will turn out wonderfully. Blessings for the new year.

  2. Beautiful blanket! I have the Claret Cowl on my to be made list too!

  3. Love the blanket. I have made smaller projects with the basketweave stitch... yours is lovely! Happy New Year!

  4. Happy New Year Tonya! What a lovely skein of yarn, and a very good goal to reach for :0)
