Yarn Along

Joining in again with  Ginny, though I confess, I am not knitting much these days.  When spring arrives on a homestead it is hard to do anything that does not involve large amounts of manure.  I am still working on the same Noro hat I started 2 weeks ago,  I picked this hat because it was such a quick knit, well.........
I am getting lots of reading time in, and I am very excited about what I am currently reading.  I apologize for the lack of a personal picture, my budding 7 year old photographer seems to have mis placed my camera again.  Anyways back to my reading, Apostolic farming by Catherine Dougherty, from Madonna House in Canada. Her reflections of her youth in Russia, families farming and feeding the poor, respecting and healing the earth are simply prophetic.  This is a small, quick read, that I am busy highlighting passages from.
The second book I am reading in We Took to the Woods; old classic!  Fabulous, eccentric, read that speaks to my heart.

I am placing a book order and I think I need to add "We Took to the Woods", it sounds great.

The books both sound excellent! I always have a book list a mile long after Yarn Along days, and these are both being added to it! Happy knitting.

I'm especially interested in that second book - I've added it to my book list. Thanks!

That last book looks like one I would like to read! I too am finding time to knit challenging as our hobby farm is waking up--but a stitch here or there a day makes a bit of progress:-)
