yarn along

On my needles I still have some secret knitting.  I am excited to get back to my Hitofude eventually but it might be awhile; I am really hoping I have time to knit a little hat for my Rosie too.

Amanda over at Life and Times of Julian and Amanda has been doing a video yarn along podcast and it is so fun to watch and listen to her chat about her projects; go watch too!  I save it for when the kids are napping and then try to grab my knitting for a few minutes while watching. 

I am reading The Greatest Gift by Ann Voskamp as an Advent devotional each night before falling asleep. I love that everything I read there speaks to something the Lord is also showing me in the Bible study of John I am doing with ladies at church. "The greatest gift God graces a soul with is His own presence."  His own presence is Jesus!  He came!  Emmanuel - God lives with us. 

Besides a couple pages of that, Instagram is the closest I get to reading for myself this month.  If you want to find me over there I go by the creative username sarahdempsen.  It's my favorite social media for sure!

Knitting or reading this week?  Join in the fun at Ginny's Small Things blog!


  1. I have that book on kindle and I WILL start reading it today. I've seen it about on the yarn along. secret knitting is the bestest knitting ever :)

  3. I'm reading Ann's devotional, too, and I'm loving it. Each day is just the right length (I read mine in the morning), and I love the thoughtful questions, too. See you on IG. :)
