Yarn along and a Book review

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading (though not at the same time!), and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading? Take a photo and share it either on your blog or on Flickr. Leave a link below to share your photo with the rest of us! ~

I haven't joined Yarn along since last Fall! 
It's just been a tough season.
So glad to join everyone !

I just finished reading "in firefly valley" by Amanda Cabot. I read the first book in the Texas crossroads series " at bluebonnet Lake" and was glad I was chosen to get to review this one as well. This author has a writing style that I enjoy. I like realistic characters with a deep plot that I find myself asking questions about the details and wanting to find out what decision the characters will make morally. I find there is a balance in a Christian novel and don't like the authors faith to be overbearing and this author does a good job at it! Both of the books in this series had a romance thrown in for good measure as well. It was so entertaining that I read it in three days. If you are looking for a Christian novel I would recommend this Author. I will head over to Amazon to give this book five stars. Id like to thank Revel books for this review copy. This review is my opinion and I was in no way encouraged to give a positive review. 

I mentioned that I have recently become a grandmother and can't believe our little guy is three weeks old already. He is such a cutie and seems to be settling in rather nicely. That brings me to my next topic. I downloaded Jared Floods blanket "Bairn" to knit for our grandson. It has several different cables so not a pattern for a beginner. I had a hard time at the start but now that I am writing the rows down and have gone through the repeat a time or two I have got the hang of it. I love a pattern that has some details so I don't get bored. Anyhow, since we live in Florida he will get his blanket this Fall or Christmas. Thats code for, " I wasn't able to get it knit up in time for his birth!" 

lil G has had a virus/ cold and this photo was my happy thought for the day yesterday. Poor thing even had ulcers in her throat necessitating a Dr appointment to make sure it wasn't strep. This past winter she kept stealing my house slippers, I wear them all the time since we have tile floors and they are so hard on my joints. We bought her some slippers of her own but she still steals mine every chance she gets! I don't know why but it makes my heart happy hearing house slippers scuffling down the hall. 

I hope this finds you and yours enjoying the beautiful Spring weather.
Under His Wings,


  1. What a precious little baby and so lucky to have that gorgeous cable blanket. I hope your little daughter gets better soon with the nice spring weather.

  2. I found my way here through Ginny's Yarn Along, and I ended up wandering around your terrific blog. I look forward to visiting again. The orange baby blanket for your grandson is beautiful!
