Good morning everyone! It is Wednesday, and we are Yarning Along with Ginny and joining in with Tami's Amis' Work in Progress and Ambassador Crochet today!
Once I finished my son's blanket last week, I was a bit at odds. But, that didn't last long. I am now working on a sweater - for myself! I am using Lion Brand Yarn Fisherman's Wool which has been lovely to work with.
Now, this is my first time working on a sweater, and I am taking a bottoms up approach, so we will have to see how it goes. But, I am hoping to finish it before the end of winter.
Wearing wool in summer isn't so much fun.
On the literary side, I have a few books going. I read and finished Barnheart by Jenna Woginrich (check out her blog Cold Antler Farm - love it) and it inspired me to move on to Joel Salatin's Folks, This Ain't Normal. It is wonderfully thought provoking, making me reconsider quite a few things in my day to day practices. I appreciate his absolute blunt honesty about how he sees the world.
I would easily put both of these books up with Barbara Kingssolver's Animal Vegetable Miracle, a book that I found to be completely life changing.
Well, that is all that I have for now. The morning hours are coming upon me, and I have chickens to let out of their coop :)
