On My Needles and What I'm Reading... January 26, 2022

  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 ladies!

   What are you all up to this week? 

On my Needles:

 My knitting needles have been busy. I'm knitting fingerless mitts and a black wool hat.

This is a double brimmed watch cap for my husband. It has a provisional cast-on with scrap yarn that will be removed later. 

My Everything November Mitt is coming along nicely.

On My Scribd App: 

I'm listening to And Then There Were Crumbs by Eve Calder.

 Don't forget to be in God's word. I use the app. I'm listening to Matthew right now.

 Have a lovely week! What is on your needles? What are you reading? I would love to know. The fun of blogging is in interacting with readers. Talk to you soon!

 Hugs to all,
 Hopeful in all things


P.S. One of my favorite things is listening to audio books on Scribd. 

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, e-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. 


Here are some books I've enjoyed recently. 



  1. I am currently reading a mystery book, but just finished Year of Yes. I was reading it for a book club and I am thankful that it is finished as I did not care for the book at all.

    1. I hadn't heard of that one Carol. I won't look into it. I find that I often don't want to read the book my club chooses. I am rethinking my membership.

  2. I love that you keep yourself so busy with your projects. Happy knitting! I need to get a couple of audio books! xo Diana

    1. I love paper, but audio let's me keep my hands free!

  3. I'm watching your progress on the fingerless mittens, it's one of the things I won't to learn how to make ... but wait, I have to learn to knit first!!! Your work is beautiful!

    1. Hi Patsi!
      I had help from friends, but much of my learning about knitting has come from YouTube videos. ~smile~

  4. On my knitting needles ... a scarf that I started when our firstborn was a baby. He now has a baby of his own. It may be time I pull it out and finish it, if I still remember how after all this time.

    Your list of recently listened to books sounds interesting. I'll have to see if our library has some of them.


  5. This just inspired me to pick up my knitting needles again! It’s been so long. I’m Jessica :) I saw you homeschooled your 4 and I’m currently homeschooling my 4! Nice to meet you :)

  6. Good morning! I've got my second square for a memory blanket for my friend's children cast one (finished the first square yesterday). Reading a so-so New Adult novel called When It's Real. I haven't been able to get into audiobooks, what with having a young child, but when she's older and doesn't need my attention every four seconds, haha, I plan on trying. :) Have a great day! :)

    1. Yes, it gets exciting when the interval moves to ten seconds. ~smile~ Enjoy enjoy enjoy! I loved to read books to my children. Now they are all avid readers and grown up to boot!
