On My Needles... What I'm Reading... August 30, 2019

On my knitting needles... on my Scribd app! Knitting and reading in my free time and little bits of snatched time is one of my favorite ways to enrich my life.

 This is my Dotty beanie. It's the same one I shared a couple of weeks ago that looked orange. This red is closer to the correct color. It's actually a little deeper. I have finished my socks. I only need to sew in the loose ends. I'll share those with you next week.  I've also started a toddler beanie in the brown yarn that was left over from Penny's sweater.

 I made a decision to stop reading All the Light We Cannot See. I have a couple things going on that are stressful right now. I'm the type of person who really gets into stories emotionally. I found that my stress level and my anxiety level was rising too much by adding the horror of the characters' experiences in World War II. It is extremely well-written. I took a WW II class in college from a German who was the right age to have been there. It was a terrible time in our history. 

 I am now listening to Anxious for Nothing by Max Lucado with Scribd.  I'll be starting The Printed Letter Bookshop by Katherine Reay in a few days.

Have a homemade, handmade, heartmade thrifty week! 

P.S  If you use my link, you'll get a 2 month free trial of Scribd, and I will get a free month as well. I'm not an affiliate, it's just a neat perk that they have for their subscribers who tell their friends.

  1. I'm glad you are enjoying your Scribd subscription. I just realized that some of the books "come and go" , so I hope to go through some of my "saved" books this week and print out some patterns. Your red beanie is looking great.

  2. Hello my friend! I love that beanie! Hope this new read is much better for you. We are having leftovers from potluck today. It is your wonderful recipe that I got from you. Everyone at church loved it too.
