yarn along - baby blanket

~ Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading, and the evidence of this often shows up in my photographs. I love seeing what other people are knitting and reading as well. So, what are you knitting or crocheting right now? What are you reading?~ Ginny

knitting big squares from left over cotton yarn - it's so soft and squishy - I'm using bigger needles than required and I'm going to add some minky fabric on the back so it will be minky/knitted blanket :)

reading Kisses from Katie - loving the book, it makes you think about our life standards and how we rely on material things and on ourselves - it teaches us to trust in Him and say Yes to our Lord every day.


  1. What a great idea for the blanket to add minky fabric to the back, it sounds so soft.
    I think I would like an adult version! :)

  2. I love your squares for the blanket! Great idea!

  3. love your top photo of the dirty feet in africa. i love dirty feet. truly, sounds weird and my husband thinks it is so gross, but in the summer i am flip flops or bare feet, so my feet are always dirty. i love it. to me it is a sign of life lived.


  4. Very nice stripes for the blankets! Very cheery.

  5. I heard Katie interviewed on the Dave Ramsey show and was really impressed by her. What an amazing young woman!

  6. Knitting - nothing cause I don't know how to do it (or, cause you took all the talent, sis :P) ...and reading, hmmm, two days ago I started to read Orwell's Animal farm :) so maybe I'll continue this evening :* ...love you sis ! love what you are doing :) !

  7. sounds like a cozy blanket! books on africa are one of my favorites too.
