I have been on a bit of a sewing kick since I got my serger so knitting has been a little neglected. Alex has been particularly needy lately though and I can knit and nurse at the same time so things have picked up a little.
I’m working on my first pair of longies that have short rows in the pattern. It’s been challenging but I think I finally have the hang of it!
I have been working on planning our Lent the last few days. Advent was such a disaster with Mr. Cranky taking so much of my time, so I’m hoping I can do better with Lent.
The Story of the Cross is probably one of my favourite books ever. It really brings the stations of the cross to a level that Mary can understand without compromising the events of Jesus’ last days. I borrowed it from the library last year but it was one we had to have.
Another book I love to use is Mrs. Sharp’s Traditions. I found this one in a used bookstore and it’s full of wonderful traditions for all seasons. We’ll be incorporating some of her ideas into our Lenten calendar.
Thank you for the book recommendation – I’ve been trying to find some good reads for my 2yo son as we enter the Lenten season! I saw a beautiful craft idea for Stations “eggs” (modeled after the Resurrection Eggs) that would pair perfectly (although as I write this I can’t remember where . . .).
I would love to find a copy of Mrs Sharp’s Traditions! You lucky girl…
What pattern are you using for the longies? I recently did a romper with short rows. They are a bit tricky to figure out but the finished product is pretty neat 🙂 Ps. I got your email. Your mom is stopping by today to pick up the package.
I can’t wait to see the toys! I’m probably more excited than my kids will be… 😛
The pattern I believe is called tweedle pants? It’s a ravelry pattern. I’m in a facebook group with the lady who wrote the pattern and she helped me a little when I was confused. It’s a great pattern if you are looking for one!
I also love Mrs. Sharps!!! I’ll have to check out your other recommendation! Love the color of your longies…….sweet!
