Craft On: Working and Finishing
This week, I picked up that little mitt to make its match for a quick pattern release. It was my New Year cast on and I worked out all the challenges in it, so the next one should go really quickly. Ember Days is moving right along, and makes good knitting when I am doing something else and should be released this fall. On the weekends, I will still be working on Ascalon.
I finished some things, too! Vespers really delights me, and Yasmina is happy to have her mittens finally. I did a bit of experimenting this weekend, and made up that little baby hat with the leftovers from Vespers. This is completely unblocked and I still need to weave in its ends, but it will probably go to my midwife to pass to a new baby when those are completed.
Our reading this week is largely continuing with Little Town on the Prairie, as we finished The Long Winter last week. I am still reading Babel, but picked up my Romans and Sirach studies a little more this past week. It has been such a hard week, and I needed to read something true and beautiful. Also, I put out word to women in my area to see if anyone was interested in reading the Psalms with me, and several are interested in going through Songs of Praise, which thrills me. It is looking like it will happen in the evenings, but over dinner, which will also be fun.
