On My Needles and What I'm Reading... June 16, 2021

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

   Hello everyone!  

  What are y'all up to lately? I enjoyed a caramel frappe this morning with my daughters at the local coffee shop. Yes, I did that last Wednesday, too. Not planned... but... am I sensing a pattern here? While Sugar Cookie used her computer and Ginger Snap did homework online, I read a few chapters of Everybody Fights by Kim and Penn Holderness. Watch for my review by the end of the month. I can already tell this one is really good and down to earth. They use real life examples from their own lives. I'm still reading Come Back to Me, too. Gotta love good fiction!

Read one.
Knit two.

Just got this in the mail!
I hope to start this book next week!

  The blue, purple and green sock hasn't grown much since last week. Well, it did, until I found a mistake and had to pull out many rows. Good think I like knitting and like the yarn. I don't know what it is. It is some leftover yarn from a friend's project. I think hope I have enough to make a pair of ankle socks. We shall see! Yarn chicken! 

  I wish you happy reading this week and happy stitching, crafting, baking, making do, gardening, putting up, or whatever you're doing to be busy with your hands and mind.

 Don't forget to be in God's word. I'm in Hebrews right now. 

 Hugs to all,
 Hopeful in all things

P.S. One of my favorite things is listening to audio books on Scribd. This month it is Alice in Wonderland for my book club. I keep telling you about Scribd, because it has been such an game changer for me. 

It's only $9.99 a month for unlimited audiobooks from major publishers, books, magazines, sheet music, podcasts, and documents as you want.

I get well over $9.99 a month in value. I love it.

You can get a free 2 month trial by using my Scribd  link. I'll get a month free, too, so it's win-win to try it out. 



  1. I love reading too. I am currently doing a Bible study with Tara Leigh Cobble and I am enjoying it. I am reading in Proverbs right now.

    1. Good for you Carol. Glad you're in the Word.

  2. Sounds like you are having a nice and relaxing summer. Enjoy!

    1. Good so far! Too hot to be out right now. 94!
