Yarnalong: Rocio Cardigan and "Mudhouse Sabbath"

I'm linking up with Ginny, over at Small Things, who says, "Two of my favorite things are knitting and reading . . . 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?"

The knitting: I'm still knitting the Rocio Cardigan, and I've made a lot of progress. I finished the lace panel and now I'm knitting the body. 
The book: I'm reading "Mudhouse Sabbath", by Lauren Winner. It's really interesting: she discusses Jewish traditions and spiritual practices in the light of her conversion to Christianity. I especially appreciate the way she describes the Jewish traditions regarding mourning, and how they have an understanding of the time grief takes and the way the person mourning needs to be in community. I feel like I'm learning a lot - and having a pleasant time at it, too, because Winner has such light, easy prose.

What are you reading and making?

Peace of Christ to you,
Jessica Snell
