It's been a little while since I last posted, so here's a little update:

Knitting - finished the knitting portion of the program for the Flower Basket Shawl and now have only the blocking part to do. I need to have FBS done for "show & tell" on Monday night. It's going to be part of my talk on busyness and how it can interfere in our Christian walk. The FBS is going to symbolize that busyness can be OK when your daily life shows less you and more of God and how His pattern shines through when you allow it. Since lace is how the absence of stitches highlights complexity rather than the stitches themselves, I really felt it would be a good example of how less of self allows God to shine through a person's life.

I also have one of the Cigar gloves done up to the point of needing to separate the thumb stitches to work on the hand. And I casted on (again!) for a pair of socks from my ball of Opal Tiger, this time on #2 needles. The socks were cast on because I needed something simple to work on while traveling to a wedding. They also came out at the reception and led to a lovely conversation with another knitter.

Reading - I added a few more books to the sidebar, 4 of which were read in the last week or so. Loved the Wheaton book. Grabbed Embroidered Truths as a quick easy read, and then got sucked into reading through some of my Krentz books as well. I'm trying to finish up the Weaver book, have another one waiting to be read before Monday and I'm grabbing little bits here and there of War Reporting for Cowards.

Now, since all you've gotten is a shopping list update of my knitting and reading habits, here's a quick pic of the nephew. He's wearing the Hot Head beanie I made him and watching Cars.
