It's 6:30 a.m. and I have kids to rouse and ready for school, and myself to prepare for a day of work teaching little ones. But here I am, just the same, because who can resist the call to share what one is knitting and reading? Hop on over to Ginny's Small Things to share your own, and to visit other Yarn Alongs.
Knitting socks is yet another obsession. There's something luxurious about creating a sock that fits YOU perfectly...it's like secretly wearing saucy lingerie under your jeans. I almost feel guilty spending so much time and effort on something for myself to wear. On my feet.
I said almost.
I received Sarah Ban Breathnach's "Peace and Plenty" as a birthday gift. Like Simple Abundance, it's a gently encouraging kind of book, chronicling her spiral into financial disaster and how she's steadily climbing out. It's full of thrifty tips and little wisdoms for these economically challenging times.
It is a work day for me, and it's got to begin now; however, I do hope to find a moment in the day to visit YOUR Yarn Alongs. Thanks for visiting mine!
