|Photography skillz: weak|
I had another post in draft about how hashtags don't do that much and I feel like contacting the White House, the VP, the First Lady and my state's senators (which I did) is actually more productive than sharing memes and hashtags on social media, but this is way more fun!
I follow @ginnysheller on Instagram and I totally love all of her photos. Plus, she has a most adorable baby named Mabel, so I can barely even handle that. I can only aspire to her knitting prowess, but I thought it would be fun to link up with her Wednesday Yarn Along post anyway. Her blog posts are always worth reading, too, for what it's worth. She is thoughtful and wise and I'm always glad when I've read one of her posts.
I'm not working on anything fancy, knitting-wise, just a dishcloth to replace some that are wearing out. Color: Caribbean, because winter. I'm a little more into reading than knitting right now so this easy project is just right.
My dear middle son is begging me for a replacement winter hat since the one I made him two years ago is almost in shreds. I have the yarn for it so I suppose I'll start that today and leave the washcloth for another time. I can't resist a sweet kid a hand-knitted hat, man.
For reading, I am three books into the Harry Potter series (enjoying it!) and I just finished "The Blue Castle" by L.M. Montgomery (loved it), so I'm back to working on "The Family That Overtook Christ." I was assured by a priest friend that it would change my life. I can't say that quite yet, but it's interesting, compelling, convicting, and I am happily plugging along a few pages at a time.
