yarn, books, and distractions

Perhaps distractions should go first in the blog post title.  After a few days of cleaning and purging, I am feeling a bit like, what next?  I will admit that I have not gotten far in this book or on this shawl.  But I am hoping not to push either one and just enjoy them.
My head and heart keep wandering as I think and pray about a season of struggle and loss going on in the lives of a number of my friends.
This has certainly been an interesting year.  One that reminds me of a quote from Zora Neale Hurston. "There are years that ask questions, and years that answer."
Be sure to take a look at what others are reading and knitting this week.

sorry for your friends going through rough spots...prayer is always the balm. :)

Such a calm gray colorway you're working with; your shawl is going to be lovely.

Happy knitting from Lisa in SW WA

I'm anxious to start this book but have a huge pile and this isn't close to the top yet! I'm thinking about getting a new paperwhite kindle. They are so small and lightweight, so would not be too heavy for my backpack. Thinking!
