I have been picking away at my Magnolia Shawl. It really is a lovely pattern. You really can't see the full effect of the design, I think, until done and blocked. But when I pull the yarn and take a close look at the stitches, it's quite stunning. I love how the model is wearing it in the picture. My hope is to have it done for Spring and wear it similiar to her style--I love denim and western themed belts, nothing too flashy mind you, but a little design in the yee haw department. 

Currently not reading any ONE book, but the nightstand is full and I continue to pluck away at a chapter here and there before bed. I always devour Mother Earth's publications. 

Today is the beginning of Lent. Many born-again Christians don't follow any lenten traditions, if your Sola Scriptura. But I try to have us focus on the days leading to Easter with readings and such. I am going to give this book A Family Journey with Jesus through Lent another try. The first few pages in I found a few doctrinal issues, but I think I can modify it to suit our beliefs. Why throw the baby out with the bath water, eh? I would love to hear how others handle Lent from a biblical perspective. 

I really should tell you what the yarn is, unfortunately, the other skeins are in a storage container in our barn and quite frankly, it is too cold to run across there! But it does have a lovley colorway, don't you think? The blue has a bit of teal running through.

I've decided to give myself 20 minutes a day of uninterrupted, scheduled knitting a day. When one deals with chronic pain you have to go to your happy place a few times a day. Knitting is one of my happy places, so I am going to make sure I get there and let the "other" duties wait.

  1. That blue really is pretty. I don't blame you for not wanting to get the rest of it! I never knew Mother Earth Living Magazine existed. I'll have to check that out!
