Yarn Along

Just in case you don't know what yarn along is (I realized I never really explained this on my blog) it's where a bunch of bloggers share their yarn projects (knitting, crocheting) and what books they're reading. Since I'm obviously an avid reader and I also like to be crafty, I enjoy joining in.


Last week I shared I finished (temporarily) baby blankets for my best friend's twins. I'll add a border to them according to the baby's genders when we find out what she's having! So this week I started a new project... another baby blanket!  I realized looking at my yarn that I had enough left over to do a new one. This time I'm doing double crochet (last was half double crochet).  No, I don't know what baby will get this blanket; but God does. So I'm still doing out of love.

As far as books go, I'm still working on the Bible of course (doing at Bible in 90 days challenge).  I actually read The Christian Lover pictured above a while ago, but I just got it in the mail... that publisher gives ebooks to review, then sends you print books after you review (I think that's pretty cool; some publishers only have ebooks).  So I'm saying "yay it arrived" and also using it as a stand in for The Donkey Who Carried A King, whichI read this week. It is from the same publisher and I reviewed as an ebook.  It's a cute children's book and so is God Gave Us Love, which I'll probably be reviewing any day now.  The last book up there, The Road to Grace, I'm only like a chapter in so far.

After this baby blanket, I already have another project lined up... and no, it's not another blanket. :)

  2. Love your blankets, those lucky babies are going to be 'wrapped' in a lot of love. I'm also doing a bible study with the New King James Version, but I think I may take me longer than 90 days.

  3. I'm glad I'm not the only one who knits baby things for a baby I have no idea who it's going to! You're right, God knows! I love the colors of the blankets!
