Yarn Along--and a Giveaway!
Joining in once again for Ginny's weekly Yarn Along, and looking forward to seeing what everyone else is reading and knitting or crocheting!
I have finished the body of Gemma's summer cardigan (our church is freezing in the summer! They say it is because the confessional doors stick in humid weather, but perhaps it is a way of insuring modest dress in the summer when girls start showing up in shorter skirts and sleeveless tops!), and have only the sleeves, blocking and buttons to do. I am starting a hat for Japan (have you started yours?) and am tempted to start another sweater as well--I have a goal of making something for each of the kids by this November, but that may be ambitious for me, as I am a slow knitter with very limited time.
I also managed to finish The Invisible World--Understanding Angels, Demons and the Spiritual Realities That Surround Us, which I have been reading through the last few Yarn Alongs (you can read my little review of the book right here). Anyway, I was given, in exchange for my honest review, the reading copy along with an extra copy to give away on my blog, so if you are interested in reading it, here is your chance to obtain a copy for free! Just leave a comment here between now and Sunday, May 15th, midnight EST, and I will randomly choose a winner on Monday (I will be gone Friday through Sunday).
Good luck, and happy knitting and reading!
