Yeah!!!!



I can toot my horn today, have two knitted projects done.




First one is the socks that was done two at a time, cool idea but I'll not do it again. This method is not for me, the yarn would get tangled up constantly and felt like I was wasting time fooling around with the two strands of yarn. 
You never know what will work or not. And they will make a great pair of house socks.
I used a worsted weight yarn and they seem a little on the big side but very comfy.




Second is the scarf I started little over a couple weeks ago. This is the one that was a free pattern and you can get it here 



The ribbon was old and a little stiff but did soften up after a washing. Very pleased with how it turned out and will make this again. 



In fact... purchase some new yarn for another. 



Making the fringe was easy and work like it said in the directions which was great because I was nervous about if I could do it but I had no problem. 

Now to I'm reading but before I do wanted to tell you that I finished

Dead Wake Audiobook

 Dead Wake by Erik Larson and I thoroughly enjoy his book and after hearing him speak last week. He was great speaker, so funny and entertaining, had a great time. 
After I'm done with the book I'm listening to now, want to read his book Devil in the White City. 

The Devil in the White City Audiobook


So current read is 

Ten Prayers That Changed the World Audiobook

I have been enjoying the fact that prayer plays such a part in history I never thought about before in some of these ten prayers.
From the Publisher;
From time immemorial, prayer has provided comfort in our darkest hours, stirred us to action beyond what we thought possible, and shown us the way through seemingly insurmountable challenges. In this engaging tour of world history, author and historian Jean-Pierre Isbouts takes us on an inspiring tour of 10 prayers that played pivotal roles in world events. The prayers range from the divine inspiration of Joan of Arc to Martin Luther's hymn "A Mighty Fortress", from George Washington's prayerful words to the newly formed American states to the horrors of Auschwitz, and from Constantine the Great's prayer before battle to Gandhi's deeply moving prayer of peace. Ten Prayers That Changed the World delves into the moments in history when faith and prayer intersected with the course of mankind.

About 70% done.

Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
