Over this week, I read A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle, a book I somehow never read until we got married, and now ranks as a favorite. The spiritual parallels loosed tears, over the descriptions of the heavenly beings to the battle for Meg's brother's soul; it seemed aimed towards those of us who experience a taste of the front lines of the spiritual battle for souls on this earth. I decided not to re-read the second in the series just yet, partly so I can stretch them out longer and partly because a hold request from the library came in, one I've seen several people on these Yarn Along days recommend: The Scent of Water by Elizabeth Goudge. It's slow and meandering and I am hardly into it, but the reviews on Amazon were highly favorable.
I am still knitting away on "Charlotte's Sunday Shrug" test knit. I have been so lazy with my ravelry page and realized that I hadn't even started a project page for my own knit up of this shrug! I am not terribly skilled at picking up stitches, and the whole button band is picked up, so my first try was ripped out as unsatisfactory. Once I get that done, the rest of the project will fly by, I think.
We hacked back our old rose bushes last fall, and they are beautiful this year, or at least much more beautiful than they have been in previous years.
Joining up with Ginny's Yarn Along as always!
