~yarnalong: It's gonna be a quick today, guys! I'm sneaking and reading this one, The Green Ember. It's currently our lunch time read aloud (thanks Audible! And such a great version, read by Joel Clarkson, Sally Clarkson's son! ) and I just couldn't wait any longer to find out what is going on with those brave rabbits. If you haven't read it yet, it is definitely on my recommendation list. Not only is it a wonderful read aloud for the whole family, but I am enjoying reading it myself. It's just such an engaging and fantastic story. It reminds me of Narnia, in a way, and I feel like I'm meeting with an old childhood friend......I can't remember enjoying a book quite this much in a very long time!
I have had this design idea in my head, and then my sketchbook for awhile now. It's actually inspired by a song, and I just had to get the details exactly right. When I got this skein of pink in the mail this weekend, I knew that I had found the right yarn. I had the other two skeins in my stash already. I had to wind them up and get started as soon as I could. I've got a lot to juggle right now, with deadlines and work, but this one just needed some time and attention. I'm not in a rush, because it's mine, but I'm enjoying the few, quiet moments I am able to spend knitting on this and watching the next step unfold....
What are you reading and knitting this week? (I have a feeling that it won't be long before I'm reading away on Ember Falls.....)
Happy Knitting friends,
