Joining Ginny this week in a Yarn Along!!!
I am knitting the Bulle tunic that Ginny had posted about. So sweet. I am knitting mine for my 8 year old daughter Catherine. I am knitting the size 7/8, but now that I am thinking about it I am kind of bummed that I didn't start knitting the 9/10. I am afraid she will only get this winter out of it. I have had thoughts of starting over because I am only in the beginning stages, but then I look and I am on page 3 of the pattern and, well, I have gotten this far. (I am a very slow knitter) I would try and alter it but I wouldn't know where to start and well, I'm not sure that is even possible. Oh well. Catherine picked out the colors. The body of the sweater is Malabrigo in olive and the pockets are Madelinetosh in Alizarin. I love how soft the merino wool is. It is very nice to knit with.
I am reading, or pre-reading The Jesus Storybook Bible: Every Story Whispers His Name by Sally Lloyd-Jones. I love how it is writtten, very well, storybookish.
"Mary" Gabriel said, and he laughed with such gladness that Mary's eyes filled with sudden tears. Isn't that sweet?
My only issue so far is with the Last Supper. Instead of Jesus holding up the bread and wine and saying "This IS my body. This IS my blood. Jesus says "My body is like this bread." It is not a huge deal as I can tweak this while I read it out loud. I also ordered her book Thoughts to Make Your Heart Sing. In flipping through this it also seems like a winner. I am enjoying the way she writes, very conversational.
