Yarn Along

This book is comforting and gentle, Knit in Comfort by Isabel Sharpe, and tells the story of a city woman moving to a small Southern town. At 27 pages into the story, I am enjoying the writing style and vivid descriptions of the setting and looking forward to getting into the story line.
This "Bistro Shirt" from Oat Couture has been a WIP for a few years. OK, several years. It is this close to completion. Silly me, I just put it aside, waaaay aside and let it marinate. Apparently, it has been calling to me as I pulled it out yesterday and decided to finally-finally finish it. If that ever happens, you'll see it here!

The yarn is from the beautiful S. Charles "Mosaic Collection" which is offered at a sale price here. Mind you, I paid full price for it mumble-mumble years ago. The hand is so supple with slubs of color in silk, very pretty.

I just finished reading "Not For Sale" by David Batstone about modern day human trafficking. Horrid, terrifying and yet somehow promising in the end. There is always hope. Always. I am knitting prayer shawls. It is my new pet project.
